Pupil Voice

We value all our children’s opinions and ideas. We have 3 active pupil groups in school. The School Council, the Health and Safety Council and the Good to be Me team. All these groups make suggestions about making our school even better and are very influential in making changes.

The groups meet regularly with Mrs Cowcher, Mrs Willes as well as the governor for pupil voice and Health and Safety Mr Baker and the governor for SMSC Mrs Price.

Our School Council 

These children have been voted for by children in their class. They meet with Mrs Cowcher regularly and discuss issues that they feel need to be improved in school eg play equipment or they are asked to lead responsibilities eg helping Year R children at playtime. Mr Baker is our Governor for pupil voice. He meets with the children to find out their views.

Here they are helping our Year R children to find the playground after lunchtime.

Health and Safety Council

These children have been voted for by children in their class. They meet with Mrs Willes regularly and go on Health and Safety walks around school with Mrs Willes or Mr Roy our caretaker and our Governor Mr Baker to check that the school is safe for children. They are responsible for checking the corridors are safe and report any problems to Mrs Willes or Mr Roy.

Pupil Responsibilities

We believe thet children enjoy being given responsibilities. We have a large number of children who have specific responsibilities in school e.g. librarians, lunchtime helpers, assembly organisers, computer monitors and playground equipmemt leaders.

Voting Day (British Values)

We believe that children need to appreciate the importance of making their own decisions. Every year we have a voting day and we talk about the importance of a secret ballot and making your own choice. This year on the 8th June our children voted for the piece of play equipment they most wanted in the playground. The money had been raised through cake sales, a Tesco grant and a sponored mile run with the Junior school.

The School Council organised the polling stations in the hall and ticked off each child from the class list as they came to vote. The children voted by themselves and put their vote in the ballot box. The Schol Council, Healh and Safety Council and the Good To Be Me Team counted the votes and announced the winner in assembly.

Our Librarians

Our librarians put books away and ensure our library is kept organised and tidy for everyone to use.

Our Lunchtime Helpers

Children help to clear the hall at lunchtime.

Helping Hands

We take it in turns to take the register to the office. We put our book bags away.

Playground Bags

We make sure all the playtime equipment is put away.


Learning Behaviours

Children from Year R to Year 2 led an information meeting to parents to explain about the school learning heroes and show how they help them to learn.

The children spoke confidently about being resilient, resourceful, independent, reflective and able to work as a team.

They found pieces of work in their own books to show how they had used these learning characteristics.

Our School Council 

Our School Council is working with the Junior School Council to organise a sponsored run to raise funds.

Good To Be Me Team

These children have been chosen as they consistantly show they are kind and aware of the children’s feelings. They are the Big Brothers and Sisters of our school. They meet regularly with Mrs Goodey and the Governor Mel Price. They are responsible for making sure our children are aware of the need to respect others and be kind and gentle. They are ambassadors for our school.
