Respecting Everyone’s Opinions: Pupil Voice

 

Pupil Voice is a relatively new thing at BPSP. It is a group of children made up of representatives from each year group. Each half term, teachers and pupils meet to discuss an aspect of school life with the aspiration of improving it for all. This links with our value of Respect (and therefore, wellbeing), in many ways, particularly as we show value to everyone’s input and opinions. Here are what some of our Pupil Voice children had to say:

 

 

  

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Respecting Everyone’s Ideas: Collective Worship Leaders

 

Miss Lewis, our Collective Worship Lead says…

 

For the last two years, Year Six pupils have run a brilliant team of Collective Worship Leaders. These twelve pupils work to plan, organise and deliver acts of Collective Worship to their classmates on a fortnightly basis. Encompassing the value of Respect, we feel it is important that we value and embrace the opinions and ideas of our pupils in our Collective Worship and that they are a core part of our practice.

 

 

Collective Worship Leaders Eva and Isla say…

“Being a Collective Worship Leader means that we get to create a worship assembly to present to the class. When presenting, we get the opportunity to ask questions and have discussions which means we also get to hear and respect other people’s opinions. Our presentations are about a celebration or often link to something happening that week and by sharing them, we can understand and respect cultures, charities and Bible stories. We are honoured to be Worship Leaders and it is an amazing experience to have in our last year at Baden-Powell and St Peter’s.”

 

 

 

Respecting Our Environment

 

It’s heart-warming to know that the children of BPSP have high values and care about the environment around us. We now have an Eco-Warrior team which comprises of three representatives from each year group. The team meet every fortnight to discuss current issues and how they may be addressed in school.

 

 

Our new Eco-Warriors are a team of children passionate about protecting and saving our planet. They understand how important our planet is and that we must do our best to care for it.

     

         

 

 

 

Eco-Warriors: What We Do

 

We meet every two weeks to discuss new projects and organise how to go about them

We carry out regular litter picks around the school grounds

We listen to the views of others and try to put their ideas into action

We create posters to encourage others to support our plight to save the planet

We collect used pens and old stamps to recycle and raise money for local charities

We make bird feeders to place around the school grounds and encourage new wildlife

We carry out various ‘wildlife watches’ to monitor who likes to live in our school grounds (including bird-watching and bug hunting)

 

Everyone can get involved

Cycle, scoot or walk to school

Our planet needs you

-

Working together can make a big difference

Always pick up litter

Recycle your paper and plastic

Reduce photocopying in school

It’s up to us to save our world

Only use what you really need

Re-use all that we can

Save electricity

Going green for JUST ONE Tree

 

 

BPSP really cares about the environment. So, on Friday 15th October 2021 we united with schools around the world on #JustOneTreeDay to combat climate change and protect our future.

With thanks to all children and staff who dressed from head to toe in green, we successfully raised an amazing £708! The forest which can now be planted through JUST ONE Tree will help reduce our environmental impact, restore homes for wildlife and help prevent further deforestation.

By going green for the day, we have proved that our small acts, when put together, really can help transform the world.

 

Big Garden Birdwatch

 

 

The team have enjoyed working outside each fortnight, whether they have been searching for minibeasts or bird spotting. And with regular litter-picking opportunities, they’re proud to report that our grounds are generally clean and tidy and safe for our local wildlife.
