Couldn’t agree more! 👏 I’ve felt very grateful over the last few weeks. Knowing there was a team taking care of the ‘other’ stuff meant I got to focus all my attention on staff, pupils & families. https://t.co/AXARoWFnNR

As a frontline doctor in London - you really really need to take this seriously - it is bad - it is really bad - already - and it’s predicted to be worse by next weekend - too many people really don’t get it yet - stay indoors!! Seriously!

I saw an article on this over half-term (maybe yours) and I have now started this at my school! Teachers are grateful and I get to indulge my passion of reading aloud! We shared Pirates love underpants, which even ks2 laughed at and The Twits!

Very sad to hear about the passing of one of our Heroines, who died today aged 101. A NASA pioneer and gifted mathematician, she paved the way for women and people of colour to be given credibility in the scientific arena. https://t.co/aUf6dMMTCu

Pupil Leadership Team (PLT)

Pupil Leadership Team – Aureus Primary School

Underpinning the involvement of children in the running of our school is a belief that the more children are actively invested in a school the greater their contribution towards it will be.  This has a profound effect on learning, as invested children make good learners.  Additionally, at our school we believe that involving children in decision making and ambassadorial roles will generate an ambitious and aspirational atmosphere in which children will want to succeed and will develop key skills which be invaluable to them in later life, particularly when entering the work place.

The key vehicle for pupil leadership in our school is the school council and within that there are sub groups which meet to discuss various specific issues and act as ambassadors.

School Council

  • Each year every class elects two representatives (a boy and a girl) to be their school council representatives.
  • Every child in year 6 is a member of the school council. 
  • The school council meets regularly with the deputy Headteacher to discuss whole school issues and it allows the children’s voice to be heard, topics can range from making decisions on the learning environment to deciding on elements of the curriculum.

Sub Committees/Roles

  • In addition to the main School Council Meeting there are sub groups which meet regularly, these include the Sports committee and the Environmental Committee.
  • The Sports Committee discusses school games, gets wider views about how other children’s experiences of PE vary and help to organise lunch time sport activities.
  • The Environmental Committee discusses ways in which the school can support the environment and helps raise awareness around school concerning environmental issues.

Ambassadorial Roles

We operate a system of ambassadors in our school for certain key areas.  Ambassadors act as representatives and will have a key understanding of the role they play, they are trained and have expertise in their particular area.  Some ambassadorial roles include:

  • Anti-bullying ambassadors
  • Play Leader ambassadors
  • House Captains – who lead house events such as sports day and charity fundraising days
