Pupil Voice
There is a School Council, with members elected by each class which discusses a wide range of issues affecting school life over the year.

Termly we have very important Whole School Meetings. Instead of 12 classes we mix everyone up and have 12 groups with children from every class. These mixed groups discuss issues and take suggestions around a wide range of topics, for example subject leaders might get feedback on their subject or groups might make suggestions for a behaviour focus.

All children are given opportunities to take on roles of responsibility including class monitors, buddies for children new to the school and playground friends. Year 5 undertake play leader roles.  As well as acting as buddies to year 3 children, all year 6 children take on a number of responsibilities as prefects such as looking after equipment, giving out registers and delivering messages. A group of year 6 children are trained as Peer Mediators and they help other children with minor playground or friendship issues. There are also librarians and ICT monitors.
