What we have been doing so far this year...
The Junior Leadership Team have been interviewing the children at Rosebank about internet safety in order to find out about if the children are using the internet safely. Also we want to find out how the children are feeling about other curriculum lessons (e.g. Art, ICT, P.E. and History). If the children aren’t safe on the internet, we might book workshops to teach the children internet safety. We will also have a meeting with school teachers to see if we can come up with ideas for improving curriculum lessons.
The Junior Leadership Team
Our Environmental Officers ensure that the school grounds are always kept tidy and looking good. They are responsible for organising the planting and watering of plants around school. They keep track of a budget knowing how much money there is available to spend on plants during the year so our school can always look beautiful.
They make sure that the inside of school is also kept tidy and make sure children do not leave things lying on the floor. Keep lost property organised. Speak in assembly when things need improving.
Racial Harmony Forum
Racial Harmony Forum Meeting:
The Racial Harmony Forum is a group of pupils who work together with Miss Mirfield to promote harmony between all children in our school. We believe Rosebank is very lucky to have people from so many countries and cultures around the world. We would like to share our practices and respect our differences.
Our First Meeting
30.09.16 - Meeting minutes
At our very first meeting we received our Racial Harmony Forum badges and note books. We discussed what our role was and also what we believe is going well at Rosebank so far with regards to racial harmony.
We said that these things are happening at Rosebank:
- We are celebrating different races and cultures in our school community by having Multicultural Weeks, Stories and Samosa events, a variety of parent classes, Languages of the month and visitors from the local Mosque and Church
- We feel that children are respectful of different races in our school and want to find out about people’s differences
- We feel that children know who they can talk to if they have any concerns
We decided that our main aims for this term are:
- To inform our classes and the whole school what our roles are
- To have our names and faces displayed somewhere in the school so that every child knows who we are in case they would like to tell us something
- To make sure every class is being respectful of different races and cultures in our school community
Watch this space for our upcoming meetings. We are planning to:
- Look at school data to see how many languages we have in our school. This will help us look at our resources to see if we need any more dual language resources.
- Create a school display
- Create a school assembly on Racial Harmony and share our aims with the whole school.
Our Assembly Leaders play a very important part in organising the beginning of the school day.
On Assembly days Assesmbly Leaders have to be in school, in the hall by 8:45. The are responsible for ensuring that the hall is set up before children and adults start coming in. They make sure music or a song is ready to be played. Assembly Leaders ensure that assemblies run smoothly by leading singing and school prayers, speaking with confidence and looking smart at all times. They also make sure children are quiet when coming into the hall and always set a good example.
Our Office Workers help in the school office during lunchtimes to answer the telephone and organise letters to go out to each class. They carry out paperwork tasks as required and speak to visitors/teachers/pupils when they come to get information from the office. They always speak politely and make people feel welcome.
Our Tour Guides show visitors around school and interview candidates telling them information about how our school runs and what activities take place. They ask our visitors questions find out more about them Then then feedback information to SLT about what you thought about our visitors.
Our Food Ambassadors play a key part in keeping our school healthy and supporting our curriculum driver of Healthy Advocates. During the hall at lunchtimes, they give stickers to children who bring a healthy lunch or eat all their dinner.
Food Ambassadors encourage children to use a knife and fork correctly and eat calmly and sensibly. They also support Maggie, our Kitchen Manager and her team doing any jobs that she asks to ensure lunchtime runs smoothly. Important discussions with Mrs Forbes about how to make children healthier are frequent and an important part of the Food Ambassadors role.
Our reading buddies have an extremely important job role in helping children with their reading. They support children with sounding out, phonics and understanding books are a good friend to a younger child and encourage children to read whilst writing in children’s reading journals. Reading Buddies read stories to other children so that they can enjoy them which inspires them to continue reading. They also have meetings with Miss Smith and Mrs Rawcliffe about how it’s going and how children are getting on.
