The junior leadership team are a group of children that have banded together to make this school an even better place for pupils to learn (like school council).
We sent out surveys to Key Stage 2 classes asking pupils questions about their time at school. One question was: are you respected at school? 24% of the students said that they are not. We thought that this was something that needed to be changed for the good of the school.
In order to help pupils understand the importance and effects of respect, we did an assembly based around the subject for both Key Stage 1 and 2. We should our fellow pupils a video about respect and presented a small quiz. This has influenced respect in school. We think that by highlighting what mutual respect is, how it is earned and how it can improve people’s everyday mood and feeling, everyone can feel appreciated. All this leads to a happier school!
We have also made a number of Respect posters to hang up around school in order to spread the word about Respect.
