All pupils are encouraged to make contributions to the class, academy and community as they progress through their academic career. We achieve this in a variety of ways from giving jobs within the classroom routines through to being a member of the school council.
Our school council is made up of representatives from all classes in Years 1-6. Each class nominates a representative and their role is to attend meetings and feedback to their class.
The school council is given a small budget to manage, which can be spent on items that benefit as many children as possible.
Recently the School Council has been involved in consultation and design of the new school Library and discussions regarding ideas for improvements to the outdoor areas.
All children are assigned to a 'House':
Blake, Jenner, Cromwell or Royce
Over the course of the year we count weekly 'House' points and award the shield every Friday to the house with the most points.
Children also play for their house in sporting competitions and activities.
Each year the pupils elect two captains and two vice captains for their team. Year 6 pupils can be nominated for the role and have to make a presentation to their peers as to why they should be a captain. The team captains perform several roles including helping the Headteacher give out awards in assembly, showing visitors round and helping at parents’ evening.
Fundraising and Contribution
We encourage all pupils to give something back to the local and wider community. This can be done through special fundraising days or competitions. We usually nominate one or two charities to support. For example the children have dressed up for Children in Need and taken part in competitions to raise money for good causes.
