“At Elmwood Junior School the pupil voice is truly heard.”
At Elmwood Junior School we value the importance of pupil voice. The School Council at Elmwood Junior School is made up of representatives from each class and aims to encourage children to have some responsibility for the way things work and develop at Elmwood. Pupils put themselves forward as candidates by giving a short speech highlighting the qualities they embody and are elected by their peers through a class vote.
The responsibilities of a council member include: listening to the views of peers, sharing their ideas with the rest of the council and taking information from school council meetings back to their class. Their focus is on developing the classroom environment, outside environment and maintaining a safe and happy community as well as making significant contributions towards school policies. At Elmwood Junior School the pupil voice is truly heard.
The computing & e-safety subject leader has a group of Digital Leaders within the school who help out in classes, run workshops, research new technology and keep up-to-date with technology updates.
