Our Children as Leaders
We encourage our children through the School Council, House Captains, Playground Pals and Eco Warriors to be autonomous and to take responsibility for their own actions, enabling them to take an active role in the life of the school. Various groups within school are responsible for making sure the "pupil voice" is heard, this voice has an influence on whole school decision making.
Holy Family School Council are the voice of the pupils! We are a democratically elected body who meet every half term to consider issues that are important in our school. We gather the views of the pupils in our classes and ensure that teachers understand what it is like to be a pupil at Holy Family.
In addition to this, we also help to make decisions about the things that affect us as pupils, like the design of the merit awards, purchasing resources for wet play times and rotas for using different equipment around school. We are proud to be ambassadors for our school, representing Holy Family at a number of events and are pleased to help anyone who approaches.
Our School Councillors
Following on from our meeting in October, we met with Miss Walker to discuss our wish list for new equipment for us to use at playtimes. We asked for:
- Foam balls
- Skipping ropes
- Outdoor gym equipment
Miss Walker loved our enthusiasm and wrote down our requests. Watch this space!
The School Council met on Wednesday 13th November to judge the Design Technology competition. They had a hard decision to make but chose Gracie Mai from Year 2 and Luca from Year 5 as their winners. Well done Gracie Mai and Luca!
