At Penoweth School we uphold and teach pupils about British Values which are defined as:

Democracy

Rule of Law

Individual Liberty

Mutual Respect

Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

 

Democracy

Democracy is an important value at our school. Pupils have the opportunity to have their voices heard through the School Council, class discussions and Pupil Focus Groups. The elections of members are based on pupil votes and are held at the beginning of each year.

As a School Council, we are working together to make Pennoweth an even more productive learning environment. In order to do this, we share our thoughts and ideas on how to make the most of our learning opportunities. Children are involved in deciding what topics they choose to study, help decide upon playground developments and welcoming visitors to the school.

To ensure the safety of our pupils, unless special arrangements have been made in advance with the class teacher, please ensure that all children are dropped off and collected as follows:

  •          KS1 and reception will be taken to the disco by their class teacher.  Children can then be collected from the Breakfast Club entrance (via the small blue gate)
  •          KS2 children to be dropped off at the larger blue gate (beside the bicycle shelter) and collected from the Breakfast Club entrance (via the smaller blue gate).    

Class teachers must be informed in writing beforehand of any children who will be collected by adults who are not on their school contact list or who have parental permission to walk home alone. Please ensure that the school contact details are up-to-date and that you are available on those numbers whilst your child is attending the disco.

We hope to see lots of you next Tuesday at our fundraising event! We are hoping that we will raise enough money so that every class can be given £30 to spend on ingredients to do some cooking in their class. Each class will be able to vote on what they want to make and plan when they want to do it.

Well done to everyone that has taken part in the Christmas fun run so far! School Council explained to everyone that exercise is really important to keep us fit and healthy. They then led a warm up for everyone and made sure we were all in the Christmas spirit! Years 3 and 4 braved the cold and the wind and still enjoyed themselves, showing us that exercise can be fun! Good luck to KS1 with their run on Monday!

We are organising a Christmas fun run to promote keeping fit and healthy. Children will be able to wear a Christmas hat and jumper as we want to make exercise fun!  It will take place on the following afternoons:

KS1: Monday 17th December.

Years 3 and 4: Thursday 13th December.

Years 5 and 6: Tuesday 11th December.

To prepare for this we are encouraging our classes to do some daily exercise such as a morning shake up or a mile run.

School Council have been meeting every week since the beginning of the year and have been working hard to ensure we pick some exciting projects that will have a positive impact on the school. We thought that it was important to ask the whole school for suggestions for projects that we should work on this year, so with everyone’s ideas we came up with a survey that everybody completed.
 
 
The three projects that won and that we aim to work on this year are:
1) Christmas Fun Run - to promote healthy lifestles.
2) Cooking - we will aim to increase the amount of cooking in classes.
3) Playtimes - we will try and make them even better than they already are.
 
We will be working hard to organise different fundraising events throughout the year to make these projects possible. We will keep you updated with our progress!
