Our Pupil Council have been very busy since they formed earlier this term.
They were asked to think about what they liked about Broughton, and also about what improvement ideas they had for the school. Their ideas were collected together on the Graffiti Walls attached below.
Last week the Pupil Council presented these ideas at the School Open Day for new parents, and the feedback we received was that the parents very much enjoyed hearing the Pupil Council’s views! They were very confident in presenting!
The Pupil Council have also been involved with our school Visual Support planning. Visual support labels have been displayed in classrooms since the start of term in August, helping with the labelling of important classroom areas and resources.Mrs Rushforth asked the Pupil Council to help with labelling other areas of the school. She gave them a list of possible labels, and asked them to pick their ‘Top Ten’. She made up these labels, and the Pupil Council were responsible for placing them around the school. They had to think carefully about where they put the signs so they could be seen clearly by all ages. The Pupil Council have suggested other labels they think would benefit pupils around the school, for the next phase of our Visual Support plan.
Children in Need 2016
This year’s Children in Need event is on Friday 18th November.
The Pupil Council have decided that Broughton should participate by wearing something spotty that day, and bring in a donation of £1 towards Children in Need.
That day also happens to be a Parent Drop-in session, so parents are encouraged to wear something spotty for the Drop-in session too!
Lastly, the Pupil Council would also like to organise a ‘Guess the Sweets in the Jar’ competition, running next week, again with proceeds donated to Children in Need. Further details will be given to classes before then about this.
Thanks to our Pupil Council for all their hard work so far this year! There’s lots more hard work to come, and we’ll keep you posted!
