Positive pupils

Thursday 14 March 2019

Our governors play an active role in our school – find out more about the governing body and what they do. One of our governors is responsible for collecting the views of pupils – an important role because we value the views of pupils so much. As well as staff in school, it’s useful for a governor to do this because children sometimes prefer to talk to an ‘outsider’.

Here’s what our governor found following a recent visit where she spoke with a group of pupils:

All of the children were keen to talk about how much they enjoyed school.

All children strongly believed all of the teachers helped them to do their best.

All children said that their learning is challenging.

Children enjoy learning.

All of the children were adamant that their teacher listens carefully to what they have to say, particularly in reading lessons.

All children knew to speak to an adult if something was worrying them, or share their worry in other ways.

Regarding behaviour, all children were aware of the school’s definition of bullying and knew that bullying at school is zero tolerance. Regarding staying safe, all the children said they felt very safe at school. The children were able to talk about lots of ways we promote health, whether physical activity or emotional health.

Finally, all of the children were certain they would recommend the school to someone else.
