At St Martin’s we believe that the personal and social development of all learners can be enhanced by a school environment where all children feel safe and valued, and for which they have some responsibility.
Every child has the right to be heard and that their opinions and ideas matter. One of the ways we ensure this happens, is through our School Council, which is made up of children from each year group, each of which were elected by their class.
Our School Councillors have pledged to:
Always work together as a team.
Be reliable and responsible.
Listen to all suggestions and ideas.
Feedback and discuss ideas from School Council meetings to our classes.
Always respect other people’s opinions and points of view.
This year, we aim to:
- Support the Eco Defenders in making our school eco friendly, reducing waste and rescuing our impact on the world around us wherever where we can.
- Ensure we encourage and model our school values, encouraging our peers to demonstrate these.
- Support the school in raising money for charity.
- Consider ways the school can raise money for itself to make improvements that will benefit all learners.
