Positive pupils

Monday 18 March 2019

Our governors play an active role in our school – find out more about the governing body and what they do. One of our governors is responsible for collecting the views of pupils – an important role because we value the views of pupils so much. As well as staff in school, it’s useful for a governor to do this because children sometimes prefer to talk to an ‘outsider’.

Here’s what our governor found following a recent visit where she spoke with a group of pupils:

All of the children said they enjoyed school.

All children were sure that their teachers helps them.

All children said that their learning is challenging.

All children enjoy learning.

All children thought that their teacher listened to what they have to say.

All children knew to speak to an adult if something was worrying them.

Linked to this, all the children could tell the governor that they could write a worry down and the teacher ‘would know it was in there’. One comment relating to bullying was interesting: ‘Sometimes people fall out but I don’t think it is bullying.’
