Our school councillors are a group of pupils representing each class from Year Two to Year Six. Pupils are voted as Councillors each academic year by their peers.
Being a school councillor is a very important job. The councillors meet once every half term to discuss issues arising within school and also to share their wonderful ideas for fundraising events.
It is the responsibility of the Council members in each class to feedback to their classes, and to gather feedback from their peers to bring to the following School Council meeting.
The Bowness Digital Leaders have been selected to support the use of and further the development of technology across the school.
Pupils are given training and support to developed specific areas of ICT expertise. Staff may request Digital Leaders for a variety of different roles. Roles Digital Leaders may have are:
- Test and review new ICT resources
- Share their skills and expertise with other pupils, classes and teachers
- Set up ICT equipment
- Support using ICT in the classroom
- Attend and lead Computing Clubs
Our sports leadership team is a group of pupils who are passionate about leading an active and healthy lifestyle. These pupils show enthusiasm, great teamwork skills and are eager to promote being healthy and keeping fit within our school. Sports Leaders have the responsibility to encourage and inspire children to engage in physical activity at play times and lunch times by organising and leading fun sport activities.
These pupils keep the school library tidy by checking books that have been handed in and put them back on in their correct shelves. This makes it easy for others to find the book they are looking for. One of the librarians roles is to promote and model a love for reading.
Our Faith Council are our Ambassadors at Bowness. Members successfully applied and were recognised for the qualities and attributes that they could bring to our Faith Council. They regularly meet with Mrs Clee in order to make a difference to our school and wider community. As Faith Leaders, our council help to lead collective worship within the school and they assist staff in the development of the RE curriculum and spirituality across the school including organising and running our annual Faith Fair.
Road Safety Ambassadors
Road Safety Ambassadors successfully promote road safety and staying 'Bike Smart'. They raise awareness of road and safety community issues and how, as a school, we can help to solve these problems. For example, they recently introduced ‘Brighten your Bag’ competition and judged the winning entries, this with the impact that all classes understood the importance of being visible during dark evenings.
