School Council

The School Council is an important forum for children. It enables them to voice their opinions and become actively involved in school decision making, such as school environment, their own learning and even the appointment of new teachers. Each year School Council is elected from KS2 classes. There are currently 16 members, two from each of the 8 classes. Council will be coordinated remotely this year with class councillors sharing information with their classes twice every half term. Class councillors will also collect views and opinions from their class to be shared and discussed with teachers and the rest of the school. School Council members all wear badges so that children know who to talk to about their school.

Peer Mentors

Peer Mentors play an important role in school, acting as mediators to help children to solve problems that they may have during lunchtimes. This helps the children in turn to build resilience to be able to resolve problems themselves in the future. Our Peer Mentors are selected and trained from volunteers in year 6 and are identified by their ‘Peer Mentor’ lanyards.

Head Boys and Girls

The Head Boy and Girl of the school and their Deputies are responsible for supporting the Head Teacher and Leadership Team in being ambassadors for the school. They are the ultimate role models for all other pupils in the school.

The Head Boy and Girl and their Deputies are key to all major events that the school is involved in such as taking parents and pupils on tours of the school and generally welcoming visitors to the school. As ambassadors for the school, they ensure that the views of all pupils are represented and listened to by coordinating student voice for a wide range of school issues from teaching and learning to school dinners.

In keeping with British democracy, the selection process for all candidates is to put their name forward as an expression of interest. They then write their letter to the head teacher to outline why they should be chosen. A democratic vote will take place with all staff.

This year the quality and leadership shown by all candidates was exceptional and it was a privilege to be part of this process.
