A friendly school

Image result for kindnessCouncillors asked their classes how we could ensure that we were a friendly school both in lessons and at break.

Here are some of the suggestions shared at school council:

Be kind

Be helpful

Take responsibility

Be truthful

Have good manners

Listen to others

Let people play


What do you think of these suggestions? Do you have any of your own?

How could we make these ideas happen?



School council priorities

After lots of discussion in school and class council it was decided that school council would concentrate on 3 main priorities:

  1. Being a friendly school
  2. Really enjoying our learning
  3. Having lots of fun at break times.

This blog will share what the classes think via school council but please feel free to add your own idea and comments.
