Who are the Pupil Governors?
The Pupil Governors are a team of Key Stage 2 who have been elected by their year groups to sit on our governing body. At the start of the year, children who would like to put themselves forward to become a governor, write a manifesto and campaign to members of their year group. A general election is held and two candidates are chosen. The decision is entirely down to individual year groups and all voting is completed in secret. The votes are counted officially and the winner is announced.
This year, our Pupil Governors are:
Year 3 - Cooper and Freddie
Year 4 – Ella and Amelie
Year 5 – Evie and Amiee
Year 6 – Ghassan (Chair) and Amy (Vice Chair)
What is the overall aim of our Pupil Governing Body?
We want our Pupil Governors to have an active role in the decisions that are made around the school. They would work closely with the School Governing Body which develops greater responsibility and ownership for the children.
What do the Pupil Governors do?
The Pupil Governors meet every Thursday morning at 8:00am. They follow a Long-Term Plan set out by Mr Murley and make decisions on how certain aspects are run across the school. In addition to this, the governors themselves suggested actions that they felt important after taking feedback from members of their year group.
During our initial meeting of the year, the Pupil Governors met with Mr Murley and pitched ideas to him with the intention of securing a budget. After some tough negotiation, Mr Murley agreed to setting a budget of £1000 for the year. This money will be used to fund some of the projects the Pupil Governors will be responsible for.
