We continue to encourage and value pupil voice throughout school. More information about how we do this can be found within our PSHE section within the curriculum area of our website.
We value the contributions that all of our children make to life in school. Our pupil leadership team is made up of pupils from year 6, with designated roles, who support in making decisions about things in school and in ensuring our school is a safe and happy place for children to learn. They provide a child's voice to the school leadership team about how things are within school. We currently have reading ambassadors, a pupil well-being committee, eco representatives and sports leaders within our year 6 cohort, as well as year 6 undertaking prefect roles throughout lunch time.
We also have an active Pupil Parliament at All Saints', a democratically, peer elected group of pupils representing each of our classes and year groups. The purpose of the Pupil Parliament is to provide a voice for all of our pupils , enabling all to have an active role in matters that affect their lives both in school and the wider community. Our Pupil Parliament are looking forward to being involved in fundraising for school this year and are eager to have responsibility for managing their own budget!
Pupil Parliament meetings are held on a monthly basis with Mrs Huddy. We also welcome our local police officers/PCSOs to our meetings each term, to discuss community issues. Suggestion boxes are located in each classroom where all members of a class family can post thoughts, ideas or questions to be brought to Pupil Parliament meetings. Children are encouraged to write down any suggestions that they think will improve school, or share concerns that they have which they feel Pupil Parliament can help to resolve.
The Pupil Curriculum Review Group give staff their honest opinions of the curriculum within school, they feedback about how they are finding their learning, what engages them with learning, ways to ensure homework is supportive of learning within school and enjoyable to complete! Subject leaders attend Pupil Curriculum Review meetings to gather information about how their individual subjects are being delivered across school. The Pupil Curriculum Review Group support us in ensuring our curriculum meets the needs of our children as learners.
Our year 5 children all act as Guardian Angels for our new EYFS children. Within the first week of our EYFS children starting school they are introduced to their Guardian Angels, who send them home with a special letter of introduction, meet the children at the start of the day during their early days of starting school, support the children at lunch time and act as a 'guardian and guide' whilst children settle into new life at school.
The eco committee meet 4 times per half term and support in making our school eco friendly and in making our school grounds pleasant for all. Children from EYFS to year 6 are able to join the eco committee and support this important work of our school.
Pupils’ ongoing commitment has a very positive impact upon our learning environment here at All Saints' and we are incredibly proud of their combined achievements to date. We are confident they will continue to impress us with their ideas and passion!
