Welcome to our school council page! We hope you enjoy looking at what we do for our school.
We meet a few times every term to talk about what we have been learning about and whether all the children are feeling happy and safe and to make sure that they are learning lots! We also discuss other issues such as the playground, how we can help our local community, and what we can do to make our school an even better place! Each term we write a letter to our Governors to tell them what we have been doing and how we've been helping to make our school better. Make sure you stop and look at our display board if you are in school, it has regular updates on our work!
During Spring Term 2018, school Council have been working on writing our School Development Plan in child- friendly language. Here are our main priorities to drive forward progress and improve our school.
By working with staff, pupils and governors, school council aims to:
1. Get adults in our community involved in our school.
(This is linked to Article 3 from the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child: 'All adults should work together to do what is best for the child' and to Article 5: 'Your family should help you to learn so that you can use your rights properly.')
2. Get pupils here EVERY day.
3. Make sure our pupils love and enjoy school.
4. Support all our pupils no matter what their age is, race, beliefs, religion or gender.
(This is linked to Article 2: 'The Convention applies to everyone under 18, whatever their race, religion, abilities, whatever they think or say, whatever type of family they come from.'
You do not have to do anything to earn your rights and no one can take them away from you.)
5. Make school FUN and give pupils wonderful experiences.
(This is linked to Article 29: 'Education should develop each child's personality and talents to the full.' and to Article 31: 'All children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of activities.')
6. Make sure our pupils have POWERFUL imaginations.
7. Create a school of kindness, where we all have exemplary manners.
(Article 29: 'Education should encourage pupils to respect others.')
8. Develop great thinkers.
(Article 12: 'Children have the right to say what they think.'
Article 14: 'Children have the right to think and believe what they want, as long as they do not stop others from enjoying this right.')
9. Encourage our pupils to speak English correctly and to a high standard and to improve handwriting across the school.
