In October 2018 the Rodney House School Council was set up. Children represent their class for an academic year, a new representative is elected by their peers each September.
The school council helped to spread the word - Every child has the right to be healthy - Article 24
The Tiger class school councillor made an information leaflet to help people understand the importance of handwashing.
In tiger class pupils presented their reasons to be elected to their classmates. Working on their speaking, listening and presenting skills. Voting then took place with the children learning about the process of an election.
The school council met and decided on the theme for World Book day 'Dear Zoo' this was enjoyed by their peers. We had a special assembly and learn a new song.
The school council working to help our children with their rights of:
- Empowerment and ability to make a change
- Developing confidence and assertiveness
- Taking responsibility
- Making their voice heard
- Learning about democracy
You have the right to give your opinion, and for adults to listen and take it seriously.
The children in the school council have been helping to to keep their friends at school healthy and safe during the Covid pandemic.
Bear class took the school council’s advice and washed their hands. They made it fun by adding water gloves so we washed our hands and the water hands too!
