Pupil Participation

Monday 04 July 2011

We’re often featured in the local press for the great work we do.  Here’s the most recent article, describing a recent event where Mrs Taylor, Cydnee, Arjun and Farhan represented our school:

Pupils deliver involvement message to other schools

Youngsters from 12 primary and secondary schools have been giving pupils and staff from another 50 schools a lesson in taking a more active role.

The event this week celebrated a range of programmes in primary, secondary and special schools that relate to pupil participation.

Each of the workshops lasted 45 minutes and were delivered by children and young people.

Councillor Judith Blake, executive member for Children’s Services, said: “I am impressed that so many children and young people want to take an active role in their school community.  This fantastic event highlights the advantages it brings to all involved and shows how easy it is to take part.  Participation in school life will develop children and young people’s knowledge and skills in many different ways, providing valuable experience to help them as they progress through life.”

Schools leading the workshops included Moortown Primary School, Bruntcliffe High School and Raynville Primary School.
