We put the children at the heart of the decisions we make at The Avenue Primary. As a result, we have a number of pupil groups who support school and subject leaders to develop initiatives and improve our offer.
As we have merged with Lingfield Education Trust, we have introduced a new role into our pupil groups. Our Pupil Ambassadors will visit the other schools in our hub throughout the year and feedback to us in school about what they have found.
Junior Leaders (JLT)
In school we have a group of Junior Leaders who work together to form the Junior Leadership Team (JLT). All of these children are in Year 6. The interview process was thorough and the children had to earn their position.
This pupil group work closely with the SLT to provide a pupil view of what goes on in school. Meetings are held regularly, with agendas set and actions identified. The JLT represent the school at events such as Remembrance Services and whole school events. This is the first year this group have been in place and the role will evolve as the year progresses.
We have representatives from Year 2 through to Year 5 on the school council. These children (seen in the photo below) are democratically voted for by their peers having applied for the role. They can be identified by their School Council badge which they wear proudly around school.
The school council meets regularly to discuss arising issues and to work on projects, including fundraising and charity work. Over the course of the year, the school council aims to have a positive impact both in school and on a wider scale, extending to the local community, and by engaging in national and international initiatives.
So far this year we have:
- Arranged the foodbank donations for harvest
- Supported at the book fair
