Reception

Reception Pupils’ Voice

 We at Redhill value the opinion of our pupils and allow regular opportunities for the children to discuss their learning within a subject as part of pupil participation; Pupils also review the activities they have accessed through ‘Plan, Do, Review’.

Circle Time happens within all of our classrooms and is an opportunity for children to share their ideas with the rest of their class. This activity may be incorporated into any subject or when the class need to reflect on a particular matter.

Pupils in Reception are able to elect two representatives onto the School Council. After discussion in class, the pupils are then asked to share ideas that can be implemented within school and the local community; they then attend meetings with the elected members from other classes where they put forward his/her classes voice. Ideas that are put forward are discussed and voted on and those that are passed are implemented. These meetings are chaired by Mrs Ward our Deputy Head teacher.

At Redhill Primary School a cross section of pupils meet with Mrs Ward our Deputy Head teacher with feedback to Mrs Simmill, our head cook.
