Here at Rimrose Hope Primary School, we believe that our children are the most important people and we endeavour to give all children lots of opportunities to share their thoughts and opinions and play an active role in the decisions that affect their learning and well-being.
We have lots of ways the children can do this formally, such as through the School Council, Eco Group, Play Leaders and questionnaires. However, we also want to create an ethos that allows the children to regularly share their opinions in an informal way, in class, voting stations around school and also to our school mentor Mrs. Butler and Head teacher Mr. Crilly.
Rimrose Eco Group
Rimrose Eco group is a long standing pupil voice group in school, they have partaken in local community group planting and whole school eco-friendly campaigns which was recognised by the local authority and the children were awarded an Eco Group of the year award. The children meet regularly to discuss ways to make our school environmentally friendly ensuring that we are recycling and preserving water usage by encouraging everyone in our school community to care for the environment.
What is this year's main project?
This year, the Eco group have been working hard to develop the quad area of school. They have planted an array of beautiful flowers and shrubs to turn a bland and un-inviting area into a beautiful, relaxing garden where children can go to enjoy reading. As well as planting beautiful flowers, the children have also created veg patches which have produced some very pleasing harvests this year.
Each week the Worship Warriors meet to plan and rehearse a parable to deliver in assembly each week. The children deliver a parable that links to the termly Hope Award value. During the assembly, the children lead the whole school collective worship by re-enacting a parable from the bible, leading a song and leading the whole school in a prayer. The children also support collective worship activities during Messy Church sessions and promote the Hope Award home-school learning challenges.
