At Crakehall we believe in the power of pupil voice. This is represented through our:
School Council and House/Vice Captains
At the start of each academic year, the children elect their School Council. Children, who would like to become part of the School Council, make a speech and the children then vote. The School Council then meets regularly to discuss topics from fundraising to improving the school grounds. You can listen to our school council meetings on Spotify by searching Crakehall Primary School Council – Growing together.
Children in 6 also have the opportunity to become house/vice captains. The house and vice captains are responsible for representing their team at events and during the weekly house point collection in Celebration Assembly. They also had the opportunity to question our local MP (now Prime Minster).
Collective Worship Team
The Collective Worship Team lead on elements of collective worship, they ensure the hall is set up and help to gather children's weekly reflections. Children write and read prayers linked to the weekly Christian Value and support the delivery of the worship.
Picture News Champions
We have a team of Picture News Champions. These children are responsible for the discussion around our British Value during the Picture News Collective Worship each week. They are also responsible for updating the Picture News display and folder and they collect and display the children’s reflections on the weekly reflection question.
A group of KS2 children have completed their playleader training and set up games every playtime to ensure that all children have the opportunity to play a range of games. They encourage children to take part and offer support to those children that are on their own or are looking for friends to play with. Play leaders hand out certificates to children who are kind and ‘play well together’ as part of our Christian values and school vision.
At Crakehall we believe that for children to fully understand the world in which they live and have the ability to explore and discover their talents and interests that they need to be provided with broad and rich experiences.
