"We will make everyone feel welcome at Hormead and we will spread the love of our school values."
Through our School Council, we ensure that all the children at Hormead are cared for, supported and listened to. We encourage the children in our school to become more aware of some of the issues around us. Our School Council are seen as leaders in change and actively involved in the decision making to improve our school and environment. Our School Council gives pupils opportunities to communicate feelings and opinions to staff, as well as influencing decisions that are made. The School Council meets at least once a half term. The meetings are led and minuted by the member of staff responsible for the School Council.
• Pupils who are elected are expected to:
• Attend all meetings
• Talk to the classes they represent, feedback and share information and ideas
• Have ideas to share with the School Council
• Consider the views and opinions of others
• Be identifiable by wearing their School Council badge.
The School Council have come up with some lunchtime and playtime rules. We noticed that sometimes at playtime and lunchtime the children seem to forget about our school values. Therefore they came up with these fantastic rules.
The children wanted the rules displayed on Class Dojo too to make their parents aware.
The School Council have requested a buddy bench so that children have got somewhere to sit when they need a friend to play with. Miss O'Connor has spoken to Mr Stamp who said he has the perfect bench for us to use and he will also make us a special buddy bench sign. Thank you Mr Stamp.
The school council designed a picture for our buddy bench sign. Oak class school council children helped Miss O'Connor to paint the sign. Mr Stamp put the sign together and it was revealed during collective worship. The children are beginning to now use it during play time and lunch time . Thank you to the school council children for the great idea.
