At Seal, we pride ourselves on our students having a voice. We value their views on every aspect of school life where possible. As duty- bearers, we understand that it is our duty to ensure all children feel listened to, valued, respected and empowered.
We teach children that it is their right to be heard (Article 12).
How we listen to our pupils at Seal:
School Council -Led by the Rights Respecting Ambassadors. See the School Council page.
Justice League - Children from year 5 have been trained to use the restorative justice wheel on the playground. The Justice League liasie with staff to ensure all children are having an enjoyable lunchtime experience.
Collective Worship - Classes are given the opportunity to lead a collective worship each term. Children are involved in leading prayers and discussions during Rights Respecting assemblies.
Pupil Questionnaires - We regularly question pupils on their opinions.
Pupil voice postbox - Situated in the library area, pupils are able to post ideas, comments or application forms which will be looked at by a teacher.
Pupil-led clubs - We have many children who run clubs for other children in the school. They range from board games club to a crafts club.
