Ladygrove Primary School & Nursery

Pupil Voice at Ladygrove

The children at Ladygrove have a variety of groups that they can join in order to make a difference to their school. 

School Council

Every year school councillors are elected from each class. During these elections councillors have to present themselves as being a good candidate for the job. Their classmates are then given the opportunity to vote on who they think deserves the role of school councillor. School Council meetings are held fortnightly with Miss Guess.

School Councillors get to take important decisions in school. They help formulate school lunch menus with the catering team, help develop areas within school such as our playground and choose resources for school. They also help choose which charities to support over the course of the academic year and plan fundraising ideas.

Charities we have supported so far:

  • Roald Dahl Charity
  • Telford Food Bank through our Harvest Festival donations.
  • Operation Christmas Child
  • Macmillan Cancer Care through our Harvest Tea and Coffee afternoon.
  • Children in Need
  • Comic Relief
  • Lyngden Davies Centre (cancer support)
  • Save the Children (Christmas jumper day)

The School Councillors have been trying to come up with 40 things they aspire to do before they leave Ladygrove Primary School. They have come up with 12 ideas so far and need some help for more ideas. If you have any to add to the list please speak to the School Councillors in your class.

Team Safeguarding

Team Safeguarding are a group of year 6 pupils who work with the staff to keep the pupils safe. They hold meetings to discuss different areas of concern and then often hold assemblies to pass on their ideas to the other pupils. They are a safe group of pupils who other pupils can go to with any worries or concerns. They have also helped to organise playground buddies.

 

Eco Warriors

Our school has a dedicated team of Eco warriors, this team is made up of our class Eco Council representatives. Together they monitor and help to reduce our school energy usage and organise our school recycling. 

 

This year we are involved in a council project to improve the local enviornment. We were the first school in Telford and Wrekin to promote a new dog fouling campaign and were featured in the local press. This was initiated by the children and parents being concerned about the amount of dog fouling around school.
