Leeds Youth Voice Summit

Today four School Council Representatives, Abdul, Toni, Deivid and Abi attended the Youth Voice Summit held at the Leeds Civic Hall.

The children talked about democracy, took part in a pupil voice workshop and case studies. They also visited the chambers at the Civic Hall and held question time with the Lord Mayor of Leeds and met Steve Walker, Director of Children’s Services.

They learnt a lot and they will be sharing their experiences at the next School Council Meeting.

3 Form Entry Consultation Meeting

This morning members of School Council met with Tracy Waud, Planning Manager and her colleague Laura to talk about the proposal of school becoming 3 form entry.e children talked about some of the positives that they could think of such as more children to make friends with but also raised a lot of concerns about losing outdoor space, the hall not being big enough, more queues at lunchtime, wildlife habitats being destroyed, an increased amount of traffic and resources.

They also asked Tracy lots of questions such as Abdul asked “Do you have a building plan?”  Emily asked “Will the electricity bill go up?” and “Could we build ‘upstairs’?” to Toni’ asking “Will there be enough places at High School if we have more children?”

  

 

 

Clean Air Leeds Competition Update

Image result for clean air leeds

From 5th – 15th June school has been taking part in the Clean Air Leeds competition organised by Leeds City Council.

We have been asking for as many children as possible to walk, scooter or cycle to and from school to get lots of points (children who travel by bus, park and ride or by car can still earn points).

Today all the points were added together and our total is……..

53162!!!.

Miss Whiteley has submitted the number of points to the organisers and now we will wait to hear if we are one of the lucky three schools who will win lots of prizes!
