In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. In Princess May, we have Goalkeepers that aim to ensure that we are doing the best we can to meet the global goals as a community. Our job is to help make Princess May more eco-friendly and sustainable; not just for us but for our local environment in general. We are currently working towards our goal of becoming a Green Flag Eco School.
In order to achieve this goal, our targets are:
- Reducing plastic consumption
- Ensuring that recycling, reducing and reusing is a priority
- Making Princess May a healthy school
Each member of the School Council has been elected through a democratic process, providing children with individual liberty to empower choices around their education. Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives. Our school council at Princess May provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them.
Pupil Curriculum Focus Group
As members of the Pupil Curriculum Focus Group, they have a special role in making sure that the children in our school have a voice and opportunities to evaluate and develop Princess May's curriculum, so that it continues to grow. Pupil voice underpins our curriculum developments.
Librarians help to ensure that the library is neat and tidy and that all books are returned to the correct shelves. They also assist younger year groups with using the computer system to return and borrow books.
Our Playground buddies support our children during playtimes/ lunchtimes by suggesting and organising games.
