Our dedicated school council meet regularly to discuss issues and help raise the standards in our school. Through this collaboration and development the children have been able to take an active role in the decision making and implementation of new ideas in school.
To have the greatest impact, the children have organised themselves into 3 core groups:
Teaching and Learning - Louie and Sophie
Behaviour and Safety - Alfie and Georgina
Curriculum - Tom and Sam
We are very proud of their achievements so far and as a result they have adapted and improved playground supervision by recruiting playleaders; they have improved lunchtime behaviour with JPCSO support and they are currently carrying out questionnaires to help enrich our curriculum.
Our house captains are huge role models and leaders for their teams within the school. They lead team events throughout the school year and are actively involved each week in encouraging their teams to win house-points. They are also the leaders of our Inter-House school sport and all of the other children look up to them to set and maintain the high expectations we have in our school.
The 2016-2017 House Captains are:
Louie and Amber
Ellie and Geordie
Jack and Tammy
Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs)
Each year we have two children who lead road safety initiatives throughout the school and work with the children to develop their knowledge of road safety. They will be leading assemblies and workshops on how to keep all the children safe on and around our roads. We always hold a two Road Safety Days in the Summer Term where we invite Gist in to conduct safety workshops and we invite Kay in from the County Road Safety Team to help our JRSOs run fun safety activities.
This year's JRSOs are: Ellie and Fionn.
Junior Police Cadet School Officers (JPCSOs)
We have four children who take on the role of JPCSOs within the school - two Year 6 pupils - Julian and Chris, and two Year 5 pupils - Cole and Georgina. These children work closely with our local PCSOs Colin and Sally, in collaboration with the Lincolnshire Police to ensure that the children in the school are safe both within and out of school. They lead various competitions and events throughout the year, raising awareness of issues such as bullying, firework safety, stranger danger and safe mobile phone and internet use.
We have several children who take on the role of play leaders within the school. Their role is ensuring that playground games and activities are set up and that all children are playing
co-operatively. They lead games and look after the equipment and have played an invaluable role at helping others make friends and to feel a part of our school family. This year's leaders are: Finlay, Millie, Charlie and Jasmine.
E-Safety School Officers
Our e-safety officers work closely with Mrs Hazlehurst to ensure our school is e-safe. They are responsible for ensuring children understand how to use the internet safely; what to do if there are e-safety problems and also talk to the children about safety when using social media and other electronic devices. They are also involved in our yearly e-safety event, helping to organise a great day for all.

The Indian Experience
We have been learning about Hinduism this term. As part of this, Sunita from The Indian Experience came to help us understand more about Hindu traditions, in particular the festival of Diwali.
Oak Class studied the work of different artists and made their own collages in the style of Gustav Klimt which you can see below. We are sure that you will agree with us that they look very effective.
