Learning Council/Pupil Voice
Weston-under-Penyard School Council members are elected by their classmates and members of staff. The council consists of Rights Respecting School representatives, class representatives and Eco members. They meet regularly with Mrs Lee Smith and make sure the views of our pupils are considered. They contribute to fund raising events. They write an action plan for the academic year to help improve learning and our school environment.
We have four House teams: Ariconium, Bollitree, Lawrence and Penyard, symbolic of our local environment. Siblings join the same house team and House Captains are responsible for leading their House at various inter-house events.
The Eco Council are chosen by staff. They make sure that everything in school is as eco friendly as possible! They meet regularly, they organise posters and assemblies to promote energy saving, recycling and litter picking. They help to run the school garden where produce is used in school or sold within the local community. This is a self-funding scheme to facilitate the development of innovative eco projects, both within the school and the local authority. An additional role is to organise community textile recycling, coordinate regular on-site litter picks and innovate on things eco.
Our librarians are responsible for development of the school library. They support other children with their choices in reading books, organise the space and arrange the displays. They also promote new books/author choices and how children might enjoy them.
Rights Respecting Schools Team
The team promote the UN Rights of the Child. This year they are working towards achieving Level 1. They work within our Pupil Voice team.
