At Raddlebarn we encourage the children in our care to be independent learners and to develop a “can do”, resilient attitude. We therefore love to hear from the children as to how they think they can improve their learning environment. This is true of all children in our school, children with SEND included. The school has a well-established School Council. Each term every class in school nominates a girl and a boy to be on the School Council. As this is nominated by peers, it is completely non-discriminatory and open to everyone. Teachers keep track of who has been on School Council so that everyone gets a chance at some point during their school career. There is also a dedicated Childrens’ Safeguarding Board which is made up of children in Key Stage 2. They help to support the children in staying safe and ensuring that their voices are heard. The school’s pastoral team play a key role in ensuring that the pupil voice is heard. Children can visit the team at any time of day to air their concerns or just for a chat!
