We are always promoting the children to think actively for themselves and we find that children thrive when given responsibility.
Our leadership opportunities give those children with special interests in the environment, helping others and organising events a chance to make a difference in our school community. It's very empowering for them and develops initiative.
The school council are democratically voted in by each class. They meet once a week on a Friday morning and discuss what improvements could be made to the school from the children's point of view. They choose a charity to support each term and organise small fundraising events alongside our Charity Reps for their chosen charity.
The Green team is made up of those children who have a particular love of nature and the environment.
They promote recycling within the school, look at ways to improve the school community's impact on the environment and encourage us all to be more environmentally friendly, setting whole school goals.
We're currently trialling a house system!
The four houses are:
Pupils earn points through our reward system, where the individual gets their own tally of points but these are also contributed to their house total. Points can also be earned through our inter-house competitions which will be hosted each month, such as a house quiz or house sports.
House meetings will be held once a month.
