Everyone’s thoughts and opinions are important and we always encourage everyone to share their ideas and make them count. We listen to everyone’s views and make lots of opportunities for our pupils to contribute to democracy in our school.
We are currently changing our School Council to a School Parliament. All the classes in Key Stage 2 will be electing Ministers for Parliament (MPs) to attend regular meetings that will help the pupils at St Barnabas make decisions about equipment, lessons and the school day.
Collective Worship Committee:
Our Collective Worship committee meet regularly with Miss Preedy, our collective worship leader, and Reverend Freda, to help come up with new ways to deliver and improve collective worship in our school. They have great ideas, including a research project all about Saints and they chose the Faith Week theme of Special food during Easter time around the world! Yum!
Our Sports council members are elected from classes and meet regularly with Mrs Johnson, our PE leader, to help plan and organise exciting events in our school PE lessons. They help Mrs Johnson to decide what sports to choose for our intra-school competitions and work together to help engage more children in school sports, sharing their ideas for how to do this and getting to put their ideas into action, for example by helping to run our B Stars club.
