Two children are chosen from each year group (1 per class) to help run our Smart School Council and get everyone involved. As a trial we have started with KS2 first. We meet every fortnight to set a question for our class meetings, discuss results of questions, and decide on some next steps to make the changes that we want to see.
One tool that will enable us to collate all of our ideas together is called Class Meetings. The whole school will regularly answer an online question, where children can discuss their opinions in groups and upload their answers to a central portal. Their ideas can then be evaluated and we can make their dreams come true!
These are small groups, clubs or teams who get together to share an interest, organise an event or try and improve something about the school. Action Teams open up opportunities to any pupil that cares enough to put some effort in. They are a great way to get everybody involved and have some fun!
