Listening to the children's opinions and views is very important to us and we do it in a variety of ways. Our open, friendly approach means that all children feel they can raise an issue when they feel they have to. At other times, in assemblies, for example, we may discuss a change or improvement to the school day or routine that the children may like to make. We also have the more formal child questionnaire that we administer every year and then act upon its findings. We have had many discussions in class about whether or not Peak Forest Primary School needs a school council and the children currently all believe that they all have a voice so a council is not necessary. We revisit this topic regularly in case the situation changes.
We believe that in order for the children to have ownership of some of our policies and rules, they have to be involved in their creation; please click below to see more.
