Cricket Green School - an update

Rachel Vickers from Cricket Green Primary School gives YMT an update in the activities of their school council:

The new school year has started positively with our CGS school council meeting to discuss future ideas and assign task responsibilities. Some of these forth coming events include two whole school storytelling days, volunteering and a strong emphasis this year on online safety.

During the Storytelling days, our learners will utilise stories as a powerful tool to understand more about the world around them. With each story, we hope to incorporate all aspects of our Creative Curriculum whilst encouraging them to be curious, imaginative and problem solving learners.

Pupil council members would like to increase the amount of help they give within the school. This year they would like to continue to support the voluntary work of local food banks to help those in need of support.

The Pupil Council also discussed why it is important for young people to stay safe ‘on line’. Pupils suggested a code of conduct to help them stay safe online at school which they collaborated on with our designated safeguard lead. They also suggested nominating a pupil council representative with responsibility for online safety.

A fab start back and great expectancy for future events!
