Young School Governors
School Grounds Project 2016-2017
Thank you to everyone who returned their questionnaires and contributed their views for the Young School Governors to look at.
We have met together and analysed all the responses and are now in the process of researching to see how we can make some of the suggestions happen!
When we have researched and found out costs for some of the work/ new equipment we will present our findings to Miss Wood.
Watch this space to see what happens next.
Young School Governors
School Grounds Project 2016 - 2017
Part of our exciting work as Young School Governors this year will be to look at improving our school grounds. We have held several meetings and as a team looked at our school grounds. Then we designed questionnaires to see what everyone else thinks about them.
The questionnaire has been given to every child and when the deadline is up we will look at the responses and plan our next steps.
DEADLINE DAY FOR QUESTIONNAIRES IS: FRIDAY 4TH NOVEMBER! (Please return them to the school office or see your YSG members if you have lost yours so we can get you a new one)
We look forward to reading all your ideas and views!!
Elections for our new Young School Governors have now taken place. This year's YSGs are:
Eve Wilson & Liam Merrett
Hollie Herrity & Charlie Finch
Grace Barrett & George Allen
Lily Johnson & Ronnie Moore
Ruby Foster & Jamie Stanford
Grace Almond & Rudi Clapp
Olivia Floyd & Rhys Harwood
Sophie Harris & Reece Henwood
Congratulations to all these children who delivered speeches to their classes in order to be considered as the class representative.
We have already had our first meeting where we looked at what it means to be a Young School Governor and the characteristics we will need to carry out our role successfully. It was a fun meeting as we all had great ideas and got to know each other too!
Watch this space for our plans for the coming year.
Visits to the Houses of Parliament
Members of the School Council, (Young School Governors), both past and present, were lucky enough to visit the Houses of Parliament. The first group went on 28th June and the second on 7th July.
The children had a tour of a few of the 1000 rooms there including Central Lobby, the House of Lords, the House of Commons and Westminster Hall. Some children were lucky enough to go and see debates taking place.
They also found out about the history of Parliament, how laws are passed and what happens when Parliament is opened.
Both the children and adults had an amazing day out and it provided a wonderful learning opportunity for everyone.
