Children’s Contribution to their school Community
We encourage children to be active members of their school community and they can do this in a number of ways. For example children are monitors in their own classrooms, in their corridor areas or in the hall. Children are also invited to join a variety of school teams:
A very informative video clip that highlights the dangers of young children using social media can be found by clicking the link below. It is produced by CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) which can be watched by clicking here:
The School Council
This team is elected each year from children in Years 2 to 6, with one boy and one girl elected from each class (20 children). Children can only be a school councillor once during their time at school. The School Council meets regularly to discuss issues such as play equipment, new staff appointments and behaviour.

The Eco Team
This team is made up of volunteers (about 12 children), and they monitor the energy use in school and think of new ways the school can be more sustainable.
The Healthy Bike It! Crew
This is a team of volunteers (about eight children) who support the school’s activities as a Bike It! school.
