All children at The Globe are encouraged to be leaders of their learning. All children are expected to be responsible members of our school community and to contribute positively.
There are exciting and very specific roles for the children to hold to increase and develop their roles and influence with their school community. Intentionally, there are a range of elected, selection process based and voluntary roles. This enables opportunities for all, whilst reflecting ‘real life’ processes which the children will face in their exceptional futures.
Each class is able to elect one representative to the School Council. This election is completed via a full democratic process, in line with our work on British Values. The School Council is an opportunity to raise and discuss matters pertinent to school life. The School Council Chair and Vice Chair, will meet with Mrs Kidd, Headteacher regularly after the School Council meetings are held to share the School Council’s views. The School Council will also write a report for the Local Governing Body (this might be with adult help).
Children with a passion for looking after our world are welcome to become Eco Warriors. Being an Eco-Warrior is an active role in looking after the environment of our school, encouraging all to care for our world in the small ways we can.
All schools need a team of people to lead it. The Junior Leadership Team (JLT) are a team of children who demonstrate through a robust selection process that they have what it takes to be the children’s leaders. The number of JLT members is not capped- the children just needed to show that they hold the skills and attributes required to be a pro-active members. These children demonstrate leadership skills in all areas of school life, but particularly: helping other children, helping adults and helping our school. The children wear a specially designed badge and choose from a range of leadership activities across our school- such as: reading to younger children, playing with younger children and helping with specific tasks and jobs. This is a role of trust and enables all children to have the opportunity to hold a leadership role in their school at some point in their school career.
Simply speaking, we do all we do in our school for the benefit of our children. Learner Voice is one way of us establishing the impact of all actions around all areas of school life and particularly for us:
- new learning;
- curriculum experience;
- experiences and feelings;
- feeling safe.
Additionally, it gives children a way in which to feel part of their school in terms of suggesting ideas to move our school forward in different ways.
We collect and evaluate learner voice through:
- learning conversations on learning walks;
- feedback they might provide in their books;
- talking to children on the playground and around our school;
- learner leaders talking to their peers.
Sometimes children need a little bit of extra support in school to help them to be able to learn in the best way they can. School adults help children to record their views and feelings and to share these with adults who look out for them outside of school.
