At our meeting today we were delighted to have Joshua helping us with the Vice Chairperson role which Shannon was at Bike Ability. He was a super support, ensuring everyone got heard and was helped to come to solutions.
Going well? – Good to be Green
Football keeps going into bushes – suggested cutting bushes back
People keep going on the pitch – mark out the pitch
Some children want harder work – HT to speak with teachers
Some people not letting you play at playtime – use of buddy bench discussed
Noisy cloakrooms – add signs to the cloakroom – remind of whispering in quiet areas
The older children then showed the younger children where the Twitter wall was and helped them add their comments to it. They also began pictures to refresh some of the ones on the school website.
At our meeting today we all met each other. We discussed how the Pupil Council is normally run and how this year might be slightly different as Mrs Laird would like us to help look at learning in the school.
We looked at the roles in a committee and then voted for our main members. We agreed:
Vice Chairperson: Shannon
Secretary: Constanza and Tessa
We then looked at’How Good is OUR school?’ with Mrs Laird. We discussed each of the five themes and agreed that ‘Our Health and Wellbeing’ and ‘Our Successes & Achievements’ could be looked at by the other citizenship groups. We therefore voted for which of the other themes to decide what we would start looking at:
Our relationships – 5 votes
Our learning and teaching – 7 votes
Our school and community – 4 votes
We looked briefly at what we could do to evaluate this and agreed that at our next meeting we would discuss how to do a ‘Learning Walk’ and agree what we were looking for.
Our Pupil Council members this year are:
P7 Shannon, Jacob, Katie-Anne, Constanza, Isabella
P6 Ivan, Finlay, Tessa
P4 Chloe, Dylan
P3 Aiden, Kai, Charlie
