During the school year, we regularly hold whole school 'Parliament' style discussions where children come together to discuss issues, giving every child a voice in the life of our school:

  • Children work as a whole class or in small class circle groups. 
  • Everyone in class discussions is supported and encouraged to  contribute. 

Democracy in action:

  • Children discuss issues and come to a consensus of opinion, sometimes by voting or by taking the view of the majority for the group. 
  • Children's views help to guide school leaders to evaluate the strengths of the school and steer our improvements.

So far we have focused on:


January 2023 - Quality of school meals

A focus group of 100 pupils took part in a survey and the results have been feed back to CMS and actions to address have been taken. Results of the survery were advertised in Latest News and the weekly round up.


 October 2022 - choosing charities to support

Our Year 6 pupils chose a shortlist of 3 local, 3 national and 3 global charities that we could support next academic year. They created a PowerPoint presentation that had details about each charity including what they do and what school values link to the work done by the charities. Each class then voted for the charities they would like to support.


September 2022 –Roles and responsibilities

This term the children in Year 6 campaigned for the positions of prefects, head girl and head boy. Each child who wanted a position of responsibility was invited to address their fellow pupils and share with the class how they would be vital in moving our school forward. The class listened carefully and then voted.

The year 5 children were invited to submit an application for the position of digital leaders.

Children throughout the school have been invited to apply for the position of class council.


July 2019 – Outdoor space

The children have shared their views on improving the Outdoor Space

  • The most popular choices for improving the outdoor space were adding quiet spaces for reading during break and lunch times and developing areas for learning to take place outdoors.  Each year group hosted an event to raise money to develop the space.

A reading cabin is now on the school yard, the wildlife garden is in the process of being developed, a outdoor learning space has been created at both the front and back of the school.


Parents' views

Partnerships with parents promote learning and extend children’s development.

Working together we actively support children’s learning and development.  Together we support each child’s learning to help them achieve their best and to meet their own unique needs.

Each year we gather feedback from parents in a variety of different ways.  Parental feedback helps shape the next stage of our development and improvement. Parents are often invited to share their thoughts/views on matters brought to their attention in the newsletters. This has proved to be a very effective way of moving the school forward.


In addition to this parents are invited to share their views on Ofsted Parent View
