We want to prepare the children at Breachwood Green School JMI for the democratic world we live in, recognising that their opinion counts and knowing that it can be used to influence others. We want our children to be part of the important decision making that drives our school forward. In order to achieve this, at the start of each year the children are asked to write manifestos which they then read to their classes. Each class then vote for the children who they think will be the best representives for the school. The results are below:
School Councillors 2018 - 2019
Changes made by the Councillors in 2017 - 2018
The children in school asked for something special to celebrate the winning house colour each term. The councillors felt a reward afternoon would be a good incentive and polled the school to identify which would be the most popular activity. As a result of this, the winning house colour now receive a 'Movie and Popcorn Afternoon' at the end of each term.
Buddy Bench Reinstated
The councillors identified that the Buddy Bench is not being used as it had previously been intended to and asked if they could give it a revamp. They chose a new Buddy Bench sign and gave the school two options for a poem on it. Watch this space to see the finished product...coming soon.
It was brought to the councillors' attention that the children would like more options for after school clubs at Breachwood Green so they asked Mrs Badham to see what clubs were on offer. The councillors then went back to their classes and asked them to vote on a number of clubs. As a result of this, the children have been offered the following clubs for the autumn term:
- KS2 Dodgeball
- Tech Club
