They were elected by their class peers and meet regularly with the senior management team to discuss key issues within the school. They have created an action plan and progress board for what they set out to achieve. This important group of decision makers work with Miss Dale on a regular basis to evaluate the learning, behaviour, ethos and opportunities at Forty Hill CE School and propose and implement new ideas or initiative to continually improve our school.
The children have lots of responsibility, including: monitoring behaviour; meeting with the senior management and School Council to discuss issues across the school; supporting with parent tours; handing out values certificates in achievement assembly; leading House assemblies; motivating and celebrating with their houses during assemblies and sports events; and much more. They are our role models for behaviour and the rest of the school and have high expectations of themselves as well as others.
Our Eco Council will have a bigger role this year as we partake in the Global Neighbours accreditation. This group of children, voted by their class, will be working closely with Miss Bissett to ensure we are doing our very best as a school to support our environment, locally, nationally and globally. They will be responsible for researching and implementing projects to enhance the sustainability of the school, reduce our carbon footprint and educate the whole community on taking responsibility as 'Stewards of the World' to live greener and protect our Earth.
Our Digital Leaders
Our Digital Leaders will, among other roles: support their teachers and classmates in IT lessons; help to lead Online Safety Day; create a school blog and plan and deliver a day of fun computing based workshops for the rest of the school. They may even be the first to try any new equipment we purchase in the future so they can then share how to use it with children and adults alike!
Our Collective Worship Team
Children across the school volunteered to be part of a team to review our Collective Worship and Church Services. They meet with Ms Izard and Rev'd Crofts to discuss these important aspects of our Religious Education and Christian distinctiveness - their weekly feedback on the acts of worship is vital to improving the experience for all the children in our school.
