Pupil Voice



Welcome to our Pupil Voice Page!


Our School Council consists of the whole school which is formed in to four houses, tiered across the school. the children voted for their house names and chose Native British Trees to represent both our local area and the strength that grows through a tree;


‘Like branches on a tree, we all grow in different directions yet our roots remain the same’


Our four houses are:


Each year we vote for our House Captain, Vice-Captain and Values Ambassador representatives from our Year 6 children. these children are the leaders of our house and work to ensure our values run throughout the school.


This year so far we have held class meetings to decide which charities we would like to fundraise for over the next year. There was a lot of brilliant suggestions! We discussed the importance behind each charity and all children got to vote for their favourite. Take a look below at what each house has been up to:

What have we been up to?

Since the start of the year, we have been working incredibly hard in our house assemblies. Our house focus is British Values, therefore we have discussed these at length and created some amazing posters to raise awareness around the school.

We have also covered many topics such as kindness, friendship, respect and courage. We even had some really engaging discussions on Fairtrade, Diwalli and Hannuka.

Here's a few snapshots of our house assemblies...
