OUR SCHOOL COUNCIL AND AMBASSADORS

WHY DO WE HAVE A SCHOOL COUNCIL?

It is a way for children to raise issues and concerns.

It is a structured forum for discussion and decision-making.

It creates a feeling of belonging, and encourages listening to others.

It helps children develop responsible attitudes.

HOW DOES THE SCHOOL COUNCIL WORK?

OUR LEARNING AMBASSADORS

October saw us welcoming our new school year Learning Ambassadors. Jodie, Charlie, Freya and Freddie took a visit to Silverdale Primary Academy to see how and what they are learning. They observed lessons, took a learning walk around their the learning environment and brought back some fabulous ideas that you may see around our school in the future.

The child-friendly Christian values  grids below were completed by the Learning Ambassadors/School Council members.

On Wednesday 24th January, Freddie, Jodie and Charlie – our Learning Ambassadors – attended the latest learning walk which was based at Sussex Coast College. It was a first for our ambassadors, who usually visit primary schools within local area, but this meeting was an exception. They toured the facilities and looked at the similarities and differences of learning in a Key Stage 5 environment (learning for students over 16 years of age).

Many departments entertained them including: catering and hospitality, hair and beauty and the gym and they saw many new things. But they agreed that the most exciting place visited on the day was the aircraft fuselage…yes, an actual cabin of an airplane in the college…AMAZING!

OUR BUSINESS AMBASSADORS

Our Business Ambassadors’ latest visit was to food retail outlets. Rachel and Joe from Year 6, accompanied by Mrs Golding, visited Coast Coffee and Café des Arts in Hastings. They discovered that some of the main requirements for this industry are a Food Hygiene qualification, and to make good eye contact. They finished the trip with a hot chocolate!

Our Business Ambassadors have also been looking behind the scenes at the banking industry. Key qualifications include: Maths & English GCSE, really good people skills and to be on time. We looked in the safe at Lloyds TSB and Santander.
