We met today and received two pieces of good news!
Firstly, Mrs Davies has responded to say that we can start on the journey to achieve UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Bronze Award. This will be our main focus as a group after Christmas.
Also, we are having a visitor in school tomorrow and we have been asked to meet and talk with them. James Daly, our local MP. We are going to tell him all about our pupil voice group and need to think of some questions we would like to ask him.
Monday 3rd October
Today we wrote a letter to Mrs Davies and Mr Arthur, asking if we could lead and apply for the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools, Bronze award. We also produced posters to show how applying for this would benefit all the children at Guardian Angels. Before we left, we visited Mrs Davies and handed over our letter and posters. She is going to meet with us next week to let us know what their decision is.🤞
Monday 26th September
Today we thought about what we could do as a group to help improve our school. We looked online, at what Pupil Voice groups are doing in other school, then shared what we found with each other. We have an idea, but need to put it forwards to SLT next week. Fingers crossed we get the go ahead🤞

Today was our first meeting of the new school year. First we all spent some time getting to know each other. Then we had our photos taken and wrote about ourselves for the website. At the end we made a short video, for the website, to introduce ourselves to the rest of school.
