At Ormesby Village Schools Federation we believe that every child should be given the chance to have their voice heard. We have worked hard at developing a series of committees that ensure that this happens.
This year our committee structure is as follows:
Junior Leadership Team
The Junior Leaders are made up of our Year 6 House Captains - eight children in total. They all get the chance to be Headteacher for the day and have their own action plan to work on. This team have a lot of responsibility for promoting the school to visitors, being courageous advocates for change, assisting to host events and assemblies and setting a superb example for others to follow.
The School Council consists of children from all classes. They work on making the school and environment a better place and act as the voice of the children. They will also organise events and carry out projects within the local community. They save water, energy and help growing our own bulbs and vegetables.
All classes regularly discuss what they think would make the school a better place. Their views are fed back to the school council.
The safety committee work with the teachers, caretaker and Governors to ensure that the school is a safe place.
The Sports’ Committee work to ensure that our PE and school sport is as excellent. They also help to plan sports’ day.
The Peer Mentors work with school staff to rid the school of bullying and support any children that are struggling with minor friendship issues. They are given specialist Anti-Bullying training courtesy of the Diana Award. They model the expected behaviour needed from others, they involve others in breaktime games and they also advise and guide children towards the right path, if required, helping them to correct their behaviour.
