Pupil Voice

At Maney Hill Primary School we know how important it is for all pupils to be involved in school life, to be listened to and to feel they are making a contribution to making our school the special place it is.

There are a variety of ways in which children can get involved. All teachers spend time in the classroom ensuring all pupils have regular experiences to share ideas in lessons, during 'Talk Days', during presentations and through everyday teaching and learning activities.

Outside of the classroom we have a number of activities available to all, including: School Council, Eco Team, Year 6 Reception Buddies, Team Captains and as Head Boy and Head Girl.

School Council

Hello, we are the Maney Hill School Council.

Our job is to make this school a better place. We take our classes suggestions about lots of different things to our weekly meetings. These can be about lots of different things. For example talent shows and other performances, various different theme weeks, assemblies, raising money, different clubs that the children would enjoy and choices at lunch time.

Some of the things we have been proud to put into place in the past have included organising and running a Children in Need Talent Show, getting squash for the Top Table at lunch time, setting up the lunch time rules and making sure people stick to them and establishing a international partnership with a school in Greece.

We let the other children know all about what we've been up to in Special Merit Assemblies and each class (from Year 1 to Year 6) holds a class council meeting every week so that everyone gets a say.

We think having a School Council is good because it allows everyone who is part of Maney Hill to have a say in how it is run.

Head Boy and Head Girl

This year our Head Boy is Ethan M and our Head Girl is Amber A.

What do you have to do in your role at Maney Hill?

"Our role as Head Boy and Head Girl is to lead visitors around the school. We go to School Council every week on a Friday to discuss ideas to make our school even better. At the end of the term we stand up with the School Council and give a speech about the things that we have decided. During the Christmas Productions we hold the doors open and collect money for charity. Most of all we get to wear a shiny badge!"

What do we enjoy most about being at Maney Hill?

"I enjoy all of the clubs: football, cricket, tennis, hockey and the lunchtime club. I also like all of the equipment that we have and all of the teachers."

"I enjoy the clubs like the lunchtime club and the girl's football club. My favourite lessons are art and PE!"

Team Captains

All of the members of our school are divided up into teams - Red, Yellow, Green and Blue.

The Team Captains collect the team points from each class weekly and these are reported in our Friday Assembly. At the end of every term the team with the most team points get a prize .The team captains of the winning team go around the school and distribute prizes to everyone in their team!
