Rockmount Primary School

All Can Achieve

School Council

Rockmount School Council

"I have learned you are never too small to make a difference.” - Greta Thunberg

At Rockmount Primary School we are proud to have pupil representatives that take part in School Council meetings.  These councils are in place so that pupils have a voice and are involved in decisions about the school that affect them.  Through these meetings, all pupils have the opportunity to raise issues, share ideas and take part in discussions that involve all of their classmates in reaching a democratic solution.  Pupils at Rockmount Primary School know that this is their school and their thoughts and ideas matter.

 

Our School Council aims to encourage our children to:

  • Develop confidence and responsibility and make the most of their abilities
  • Prepare them to play an active role as citizens
  • Develop healthy, safer lifestyles
  • Develop good relationships and respect the differences between people
  • To have a “voice” and to share their opinions and ideas with others

 

Why?

We value the benefits of operating a School Council. The School Council represents the whole school.  We feel they benefit the whole community and as a school we operate as a community. Through our School Council and class council work it is hoped that we can develop a balance and wholeness, helping to make our community more harmonious to live in. Our School Council work will enable pupils with positive attitudes to exert a positive influence.   Everyone will benefit from the work of the School Council.

 

Our School Council aims to ensure our children have:

  • A safe, happy and fair learning environment
  • A forum to voice their concerns and act upon them
  • A structured opportunity to learn problem-solving skills
  • An opportunity to take an active role in the organisation of the school
  • An opportunity to experience a democratic process

 

Our School Council should encourage pupils to develop:

  • A sense of ownership over policy and practice
  • A consensus over school issues such as behaviour
  • A responsibility towards the school community and environment

 

Our School Council should give pupils the experience of:

  • Planning, organising and monitoring small projects
  • Speaking and listening skills
  • Debating skills
  • Mediation and negotiating skills
  • Basic budgeting and managing money

 

Our School Council aims to prepare our pupils for citizenship by teaching them about roles, rights and responsibilities within the school system.

The Food Waste Project in partnership with Pabulum 

 

As part of our Eco-Schools Programme, Rockmount Primary is committed to reduce waste across the school.

 

Every year, the equivalent of 40 million wheelie bins full of food that could still be eaten are thrown away. That’s the same as nearly 100 concert stadiums full!

 

How Can We End Food Waste in school?

To reduce food waste in our school we will….

·Try to eat everything on our plate
·Take our time eating in the dinner hall
·Only take what we can eat from the salad bar
·Try new food by asking for a small taster
·Measure the amount of food wasted daily
·Track our progress on a bar chart
