School Council

Green Flag

The school council have been working on sustainability all year and have achieved the Green Flag for the 3rd time. The children also worked with Laura Barke on promoting foods which reduce carbon in the environment.

Gardening Club

The gardening club take part in numerous activities and competitions. In the most recent the club achieved 3rd place in the meal barrow competition and the school achieved the  gold award for the school environment for its litter fee and well- kept grounds and its growing areas, including a rewilding area and forest school.

Climate Change

Members of the school council worked with Richard Smith from Schools Energy Efficiency and Laura Barke from the Local Authority Sustainability department to monitor all types of energy usage in the school. This included thermal monitoring, CO2 monitoring, light monitoring, sound monitoring and generally talking about how the school could be more energy efficient. The children then supported Richard in delivering an engaging and informative assembly on Climate Change. As an observer, I was extremely impressed and pleased with the pupils’ knowledge about global and environmental issues, their questions and their engagement in such an important topic for the future of our world and all who are living in it.

Stop Bullying RAP

Year 4 pupils have linked their musical learning with their learning in PSHE which has resulted in an amazing performance of the Stop Bullying RAP.

ANTI-BULLYING ASSEMBLIES

The school council delivered 2 anti-bullying assemblies with 3 very clear messages.

1.    Be kind, take care of each other by saying kind words and doing kind acts.
2.    Stop bullying, don’t stand by while your friends are bullied, don’t accept being bullied yourself.
3.    Tell an adult immediately about any bullying you see or experience.

Remember bullying is when someone is unkind to you over and over again (more than once).

School Council

Green Flag status

On Friday 1st October, the school council worked with Lee Jowett from Sustainable Schools at Leicester City Council. The children reviewed what we were doing as a school to increase our sustainability and decided on actions the school needs to take to renew our Green Flag status
