Pupil Voice is one of the long term priorities for Queen Eleanor’s. Teaching children to have life skills is only relevant if they are able to practise them in real life situations.
- We encourage children to take responsibility for their behaviour through our behaviour management system
- We encourage our children to take responsibility for their learning, to know their strengths and to address their weaknesses
- Children have an input into the curriculum through saying what they would like to learn about a topic
- Children are beginning to evaluate their learning constructively, stating what they feel they have learnt and reflecting on what they still need to work on
- The children are aware of learning styles and the Multiple Intelligences through our work on the Winnie the Pooh characters
We have 12 classes at Queen Eleanor’s and each one elects a representative from their class to attend meetings. The Schools Council meet once a month, after school and on some lunchtimes. They discuss important issues that affect them and contribute to making the school a better place to be for everyone. The School Council bring their class ideas to the meeting and discuss what to do, then feedback to their classes. A Chair Person and Secretary are elected for each term and organise an agenda and the minutes for the meetings.
The School Council are also responsible for helping with key appointments of staff. The School Council were involved in the appointment of both the Head and Deputy through a set of interviews which the children conducted.
