At the beginning of the academic year, children are invited to put themselves forward as candidates to become Junior Governors. All candidates present a 'manifesto' to their class, and a demographic election then takes.
The Junior Governors aim to represent the 'pupil voice' throughout the school year, reporting to staff any concerns or ideas that students have. In addition, Junior Governors are responsible for deciding which charities will be supported during the year. Through democratic debate, decisions are made and at this point, the team of Junior Governors are tasked with planning, promoting and carrying out chosen activities and events. Although fully supported by staff, the Junior Governors are very much responsible for establishing their own areas of focus.
On March 24th 2017, the Junior Governors have organised a fun filled day to celebrate Comic Relief 2017. More information will follow next week, we will be asking children (and staff) to do things a little bit differently this year. Dress code is normal uniform, but we would like to see the wackiest and funniest hairstyles possible for the day!
Look out for more information in next week's newsletter.
