Whitchurch Learning Council members are elected by their classmates. There is a Learning Council ambassador for each year group from Years 1 to 6. They share the thoughts of their class. They meet weekly with the Deputy Headteacher and make sure the views of our pupils are considered. They contribute to fund raising events. They write an action plan for the academic year to help improve learning and our school environment.
We have four House teams: Doward, Wye, Yat and Wye, symbolic of our local environment. Siblings join the same house team and House Captains are responsible for leading the collation of house points, presenting these weekly in Celebration Assembly. They also lead their House at various inter-house events.
The Eco Ambassadors are chosen by the pupils. Two pupils represent each class. They make sure that everything in school is as eco friendly as possible! They meet regularly, they organise posters and assemblies to promote energy saving, recycling and litter picking. They run the school garden where produce is used in the school cookery club or sold within the local community. This is a self-funding scheme to facilitate the development of innovative eco projects, both within the school and the local authority. An additional role is to organise community textile recycling, coordinate regular on-site litter picks and innovate on things eco.
