Pupil Voice


OUR TIME .... to shine

OUR TIME .... to lead

OUR TIME .... to make a difference

Children at Peasedown St John Primary School already have many opportunities to take part in school life and make a difference to the school community; we see this as a strength of our school. We have a wide range of teams that children can be part of: Pupil Voice, ANTS, bistro buddies to name but a few. Children are proud to be part of these teams and every year we having a growing number of pupils who want to get involved. OUR TIME is the unique initiative we have developed as a way to get everyone involved.

OUR TIME is all about getting involved in a team that can make a positive difference to the school. This year, OUR TIME teams are made up of pupils in Y1-2 or Y3-6, with a teacher supporting, and run on Friday afternoons.  OUR TIME teams have responsibility for a project or area of the school - something that will help make our school be an even better place to be. Children have been introduced to the teams and will be able to select which teams they would like to be part of. OUR TIME covers a wide range of activities such as Conservation Care, Growing Green, Kidz in the Kitchen, Be Active, IT Wizards, Fabulous Fundraisers, Jazzy Journalists, Treasure Seekers, Eco Team, Playground Buddies and of course Pupil Voice. Children develop key learning skills such as collaboration, communication, problem solving, being organised, respect and responsibility.

To help OUR TIME be a big success we are asking for support from parents, grandparents and any other willing members of the community. If you are able to spare an hour of your time, on Friday afternoons, we would love you to get involved with the OUR TIME teams. Perhaps you are passionate about gardening, love to bake, can help out with fundraising or are just keen to get involved with school life? By working together we can give all our children a fantastic OUR TIME.
