At Little Hadham Primary, we believe in encouraging our pupils to be confident in sharing their views and engaging them in roles of responsibility to help our school become even better.
How do we do this?
Each year, 2 School Captains and 2 Vice Captains from Year 6 are elected. Their role is to represent the pupils in various ways and to support the Headteacher in pupil matters. Their first important task of the year is to lay the School’s Poppy Wreath at the Village Remembrance Service. Another aspect of their role is to give a presentation at the annual parish assembly.
Each year 2 representatives from Beech Class upwards are nominated by their class to sit on the School Council. The Council meets with the Headteacher fortnightly to discuss any school issues or plan any forthcoming events.
Every fortnight, each class holds a Class Council where they discuss any class issues arising which could feed in to the next School Council meeting.
As a previous Shirley Clark Pilot School, we use the strategy of ‘Talking Partners’ in our everyday learning to promote pupil voice.
A group of Y6 pupils are selected to organise physical activities for the younger children at lunchtimes. They are also in charge of the Sports Noticeboard.
