The Student Voice involves all pupils, in addition to the House Leaders, SMSC Co-ordinator and the Head Teacher.
The Student Voice is made up of two tiers; the four houses and the School Council. The Houses in turn nominate and elect two representatives to sit on the council (House Captain plus one other).
House meetings are used to allow pupils to propose agenda items, issues and resolutions for the School Council meetings.
Council meetings are held a minimum of once a term, to discuss and vote on resolution. Minutes are taken and are freely available to view afterwards.
Every pupil is assigned a House when they join the school. There are four for the Secondary School (Barkston, Digby, Tumby and Waddington) and three for the Primary School (Coningsby, Cranwell and Scampton).
The theme for the names – RAF bases in Lincolnshire – was voted for by the pupils as part of their Student Voice. Each House is run by one or two members of staff (the House Leaders), assisted by pupils in the form of House Captain and Vice Captain, who are elected by their peers.
House Captains are automatically given a seat on the Student Council and are expected to play an active role in House Time.
Themed House Time takes place daily during the school day:
Media Monday: Raise awareness of current news.
Target Tuesday: Discuss pupil progress versus targets.
World Wednesday: Embrace other countries/cultures.
Themed Thursday: Promote a variety of commemorating campaigns/events.
Funny Friday: Pupil ‘free’ time.
