Our pupils are encouraged to air views, debate issues and have a clear voice.
We have a thriving school council for pupils from Year 1 to Year 6, ensuring the voice of the school population is heard at the highest levels.
The council meets regularly – usually every fortnight – to discuss issues raised in class meetings and through the individual year band’s suggestion boxes.
The council is about to receive its first budget and is able to introduce change.
Children stand for election to the council every year and are chosen through a secret ballot – always an exciting and thought provoking time in school, where pupils report to staff that they vote not for their best friend necessarily, but for the person they genuinely believe will represent them the most successfully.
Through our curriculum children are taught about, and encouraged to respect, public institutions and services.
We regularly survey our pupils to seek their views on a range of issues, most recently in connection with their happiness and sense of security at school.
