School Council & Pupil Buddies

Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.

We meet every two weeks and there is one child from each class who will represent their class. The Council help with lots of different things such as: fairs, organising fundraising events, deciding on wet play toys and deciding on suggestions from the children which will help to make our school better.  We have a School Council box in the hall where children will put their suggestions.  The children in each class can also tell their Councillor face to face any ideas they have instead of putting them in the box.   We meet with Miss Laidlaw who helps to make sure all our ideas are considered and happen, if possible.

The Great Debate

The Great Debate 3
Members of our School Council took part in The Great Debate with pupils from other North Lincolnshire Schools.   They debated important topical issues which had been identified by the Youth Council.   They represented our school very well, showing great knowledge, maturity and responsibility.   They were impressed to be able to use the Council Chamber in the Civic Centre for their main debate.

Our Pupil Buddies are very important in our school because they support the adults in making sure all the children feel supported and safe.

They are in Year 6 but begin their training when they are in Year 5.   They are trained to support other pupils, to help to settle arguments, to make sure other children have friends to play with and to engage others in playground games.

The group also join with the local authority Keeping Safe Group and the Anti-Bullying Group.   They have given presentations in our school on esafety for example.
