There are many different ways pupil voice is used in our classrooms on a daily basis here at Broughton. For example, asking the pupils to form their own key questions during interdisciplinary topic work, or suggesting activities for home learning tasks, to name two.
There are also opportunities for influence in the wider picture of the school, through our Pupil Council and our school House Captains and Vice Captains. The members of these groups were selected through an election process, by their fellow pupils.
These two groups have a range of roles and responsibilities in school, and will meet regularly to discuss their ideas to support the school, its pupils, staff and parents.
Here are the members of this year’s Pupil Council. Look out for their distinctive red wristband!

Already the Pupil Council have been working on an exciting project with Miss Gordon, our EAL teacher, and have decided upon arrangements for this year’s Children in Need event. More details on those to follow soon! Each member has their own Pupil Council jottter, to record any of theirs, or their peers suggestions to discuss at meetings. We’re sure they will have lots of ideas for school improvements this year!

Already the House Captains have been given a role in supporting others in school with lining up, as well as collecting, counting and announcing weekly house points. Both sets of captains support their peers in assembly, and will be launching a school wide competition to revamp our House Shields soon! They are all motivated to represent their houses as well as they can, and encourage their fellow house members to earn as many house points as they can to try and win the coveted House Trophy at the end of the session!
Will Drummond retain their trophy this year? Time will tell…
Details of other pupil groups will be shared on the website as they are formed. Keep an eye out for that!
