At Grappenhall Heys, we encourage and celebrate young leaders and role models.
Our School Council
Working alongside our head teacher, our school councilors give their voice and opinions to life at school. They were instrumental in developing our school library in 2018/19. We very much welcome the thoughts of our pupils in how we can support them in their learning.
Our Eco Team, alongside Miss Corradine are working hard to raise the profile of Eco issues in our school. Our team of budding environmentalists have been chosen by their classes and are full of fantastic ideas. In September 2019, our Eco team wrote a letter to our local MP to explain their worries about environmental issues which they shared with the school in assembly.
Each term, ten Year 6 pupils act as prefects and are key role models in school. They help out at key events, support the office staff and teachers and lead by example.
We are keen to continuing getting the best from our wonderful library and our newly appointed librarians are raring to go. Having given speeches as to why they'd make great librarians, these fabulous children have all been elected by their teachers and peers.
Our house captains and vice captains (from Year 5 and 6) are responsible for acting as role models for each of our house teams. They also act as our sports crew and promote active break times and lunches across the school. These children have been trained in play leading and are supported by the staff to encourage others to join in.
Pupil Voice Forums
We value what our pupils think and hold regular Pupil Voice Forums. The children from Year 1 to Year 6 are split into groups containing 3 or 4 children from each class. These groups then visit different teachers to share their thoughts on what they enjoy about each subject, how we can help them learn and their suggestions as to what we can do better!
