'Loving Learning, Learning Skills for Life'

Pupil Voice

 At Blackwood School, we very much value the children's opinions and aim to give them as many opportunities as possible to take on additional roles of responsibility.  We believe it is important to involve our children in collaborative work involving supporting others, decision-making and action-planning.  We are fortunate to have many enthusiastic and committed children who carry out different roles within the school.  These roles include: 

  * The Children's Leadership Team (who support events throughout the year and are often involved in the

                                                                   interview process when appointing new members of staff).

  * The School Councillors (who carry out termly projects throughout the year - helped by their school council

                                                  teacher leaders).

  * Year 6 House and Sports' Captains (selected by staff to represent their houses during events throughout the                                                 year.  They also support Mrs Sanders by monitoring and collecting class house point                                                    totals and are often involved in the interview process when appointing new members of staff).

  * Learning Ambassadors (role models for learning and peer tutors who support other children in their learning -                                                              especially in Reading, Writing or Maths).

   * Science Ambassadors (role models during lessons who help set up experiments and work alongside Mrs

                                                 Sanders and Miss Hodges to support and lead Science days). 

   * Spanish Ambassadors (role models during lessons who work alongside Senora Shorrock to support the learning of others and help her to promote languages through events such as Language Week). 

   * Reader Leader (support younger children across the school by reading with them and being a good role model).

   * The Librarians (support Mrs Lynch to run the library and keep it in good order. They help younger classes to select

                                   and take out library books and help to run the Book Fayres in school). 

   * The Digital Experts (selected by Mrs Kalam and help to support the learning of their class peers. They are role

                                          models for other children  - sharing their enthusiasm for all things digital!).

    * The KS1 Playground Buddies (The Playground Buddies are a team of Year 1 and Year 2 children who have been trained to help other children during break times and lunch times if they are feeling upset or lonely.  They have been carefully chosen by their teachers and class friends and are excellent role models for good behaviour).
