Our Voice

There are many forums for pupil voice and involvement.

School Council

Our children's school council proudly represent their peers and contribute their ideas towards how the school is run and developed.

Young Journalists

A group of children from across the school work together after school each week to write their Young Journalist newsletter. They write about the events that they feel have been the highlights of the term. Their newsletter is shared with all the families in our school and is placed on the school website.
