Pupil Voice

At Five Ways, we have 3 different school councils. This allows pupils to put forwards their ideas and opinions and participate in decision making for the school.

The Junior Governing Body

The Junior Governing Body is made up of 2 representatives from each Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 1 class. The Junior Governing Body meet every half term to discuss issues that have arisen. There is a designated Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary.

Eco Council

The Eco-council deal with all things environmental. We are a school that holds the eco-school’s silver award. There are 2 representatives from each Key Stage 2 class. They organise recycling within the school and consider how best to keep the school environment a pleasant place to learn and work. They have recently entered a County Council competition to design a recycling bin. Unfortunately we didn’t win the competition but we were very pleased with our entry.

 

Sports Council

The Five Ways sport’s council is a newly formed council developed to discuss sport across the school and how it can be improved. The first meeting has already taken place with representatives from Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

The council will be responsible for counting down to the Olympics and considering activities that we might undertake as a school to promote the values underpinning the games. Five Ways has recently been welcomed into the ‘Get Set’ network by David Moorcroft. This achievement shows that we take the values of the games seriously and that they are instilled in our school. We are also a school that holds the ‘Activ mark’.
