Pupil Voice




We have a Pupil Voice Board on our main corridor which celebrates our achievements such as our charity work and reminds us of who our school leaders are. We can also write some prayerful intentions for Mr Lane to share at assembly.




Each week our teachers choose some work to celebrate our achievements or show the rest of our class how hard we have tried. Every term we also receive special certificates to award our attendance, our consideration for others and consistent effort. There is also an award for Star Players and a special Headteacher’s Award to recognise children that have consistently demonstrated of one of our Catholic virtues.




We can talk to any adult at school if we have a worry, we even have a 'Tell My Teacher' box in each classroom if we want to write them a note. Twice a year, we complete two surveys so the teachers know how we feel about school life. Our teachers will talk to us about anything that we are worried about.
