Class Learning Forums
At Sea Mills Primary School we believe that the child’s voice is key in whole school development and with this in mind; class learning forums have been created. Class Learning Forums happen on a weekly basis and are run by the children. These sessions allow the children to express their opinions about all aspects of school life and to collaboratively decide how things could be improved or developed. School council members take issues to class learning forums that need to be discussed and vice versa. These school improvement suggestions are then reported to the SLT where they are acted upon.
School Learning Council
At Sea Mills we have a very successful School Learning Council that is made up of two children from Year one to Year six who have been elected into the role. The school council plays a fundamental part in helping towards the improvement of Sea Mills Primary School and is run by the children. The school council meet regularly to discuss things such as; the learning environment and how it supports learning, the school development plan, how the curriculum is taught and any issues that might arise from class learning forums. The School Learning Council is led by Mrs Georgiou.
So far this academic year the school learning council have created a suggestions box, that is kept in the school library, to allow their peers an opportunity to raise any issues or concerns they have.
The School learning council generated fundraising ideas for Children in Need 2019. We had bake sales all week, welly wanging competitions and non-uniform days. Thanks to their great ideas, as a school, we managed to raise £342.07.
The school learning council are currently finding out the pupils views on how Sea Mills Primary School helps them to promote a healthy lifestyle and make healthy choices.
At Sea Mills we have a brilliant Eco Council that is made up of two children from Year one to Year six who have been elected into the role. The Eco council plays an important part in helping move towards a more environmentally friendly School. The Eco council is run by the children and explores environmental issues and encourages the other children, and in turn parents and other adults, to be responsible citizens in their use of the world’s resources.
We take a number of different approaches to help children understand some of the issues of sustainable development:
- Healthy Living
- School Grounds ( Growing spaces)
- Global Perspective
We hold regular whole school theme weeks and events across the school year e.g. Fair Trade Fortnight, Eco Week, Big pedal, Gardening Club, Bristol in Bloom etc
We hope to achieve our Bronze certificate very soon.
