At Sidlesham Primary, we give our children the opportunity to develop their skills in discussion, debate and team work. One way we achieve this is through electing House and Vice Captains. At Sidlesham all children belong to one of 5 houses.
House and Vice Captains capture the pupil voice of children in their house during our weekly house reading sessions. They are responsible for listening to ideas from their class mates about how we can improve the school and taking these ideas to the Head Teacher.
The Head Teacher holds regular meetings and children are asked to bring suggestions from their classmates along for discussion. Ideas are discussed, minutes are taken and actions are implemented to improve the school experience for the children.
We ensure that the representatives feel valued and enjoy ‘having a voice’ in our school.
