Here at The Laurels Primary School, we believe that our children are the most important people and we endeavour to give ALL children lots of opportunities to share their thoughts and opinions and play an active role in the decisions that affect their learning and well-being.
We have lots of ways that the children can do this formally, such as through the school council, pupil questionnaires and worry boxes. However we also want to create an ethos that allows the children to regularly share their opinions in an informal way, in class and also to Miss Bull. Miss Bull’s door is always open to children (and staff!)
We feel strongly about helping children at our school to become helpful, responsible citizens. We give all of the children in KS2 an opportunity to become a school helper. This may include helping in the office or in the library or becoming a reading buddy to younger children. They will have a job description and will be expected to fulfil their new role to the best of their ability. We also hope they will have fun and feel proud of themselves.
