Pupil Voice

Posted on March 03 2015

‘I’m incredibly busy,’ exclaimed one of our Year 5 pupils as they happily bustled around school with a notebook in one hand and playground equipment in the other.  When I caught up with this child at the end of the lunchtime break, they explained that they had attended a School Council meeting, done buddy duty in the infant playground and visited the Lego Club. They also had a wonderful new badge on the lapel of their blazer denoting their allegiance to one of the Y6 ‘political parties’ created for the children to explore the practical aspects of their history topic on democracy.

Nurturing the social skills of our children and encouraging them to take on responsibilities is essential part of the education that we provide at Forest Park Prep.  I attended a meeting of the School Council last week where they pitched a proposal for a twice weekly Fruit Tuck Shop.  What impressed me most was the careful consideration they had given to logistics and possible future associated promotional events.  Watch out for the Forest Park smoothie!

Our senior school choices evening was a great success.  Our current children gained a clear insight into the range of choices and opportunities offered.  We were pleased to welcome many of last year’s Year 6 to host the event.  You can catch up with their stories in the alumni section of the website

I enjoyed the inter school Speech Competition on Friday.  Our children spoke confidently and enthusiastically on an array of topics to a receptive audience.   I was invited to Reception with Fred the Ted so that he could be presented with his Star of the Week certificate for being a good friend.  The children spoke endearingly of his achievements and I have proudly put his certificate on my office door.
