Pupil Voice

Our School Council

After learning about the importance of Democracy as one of our British Values, our School Council was voted for by the pupils of each class. Each candidate gave a speech to explain why they thought they could represent the class best and what they would like to achieve. The other pupils then chose the person they thought could represent them best.

We meet regularly to discuss a variety of issues and projects, which currently include fund raising ideas, safety posters for parents and designing a logo to represent us.

Within our group, we gave speeches to apply for different roles on the council, which were then voted on. The results were:
Chairperson – Lyra
Deputy Chairperson – Charlie
Secretaries – Jacob and Poppy
Treasurer – Matilda
Councillors – Phoebe, Alfie, Bobby and Riley

We encourage children to speak to their own class councillors if they have any issues they wish to raise.

Eco Warriors

At Long Sutton Primary School, we strive to teach our children the importance of preserving both their local and global environment.  The Eco Warriors are children who have a love for their environment and have volunteered to help the staff and children at our school to become more environmentally friendly.

So far this year we have:

  • Collected litter around the school regularly in our lunch breaks. 
  • Organised a fundraising day to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund.  We gave an assembly to explain how we, as a school, could be more environmentally friendly, to explain the good work that the WWF does and how they could use any money that we raise.  We held an Eco Day on Friday 26th May where pupils came to school wearing blue and green and we managed to raise lots of money which the WWF was very pleased to receive.  Here are some of our classes on our Eco Fundraising day.
