Our school council members are elected each year. The school council helps to make decisions regarding a variety of actions within the school.
Our Eco Warriors are responsible for helping look after our school, ensuring we are recycling, reducing and reusing as much as possible. From finding ways to save water to raising money to fund Eco Projects, we are doing our bit to help our planet.
Health and Safety
Frome Vale Academy’s Health & Safety pupil group representatives aim to contribute towards the development of a safe and engaging learning environment for all Frome Vale Citizens. The group meets every term to devise and review an action plan, in order to encourage all year groups to take responsibility for being vigilant and to be aware of possible risks, whilst also feeling confident and comfortable. Health & Safety reps have a procedure in place for reporting faulty equipment and near misses within their learning environments, along with maintaining regular checks of the building and the playground.
E-safety reps from all classes meet each term to discuss being safe online. They look at child friendly websites that give advice on how to stay safe and feed back to their classmates any key points. They also address the whole school by way of an assembly making sure that everyone is receiving the same on line safety advice.
Learning Champions have been giving the role of identifying and acknowledging the positive learning behaviours of their peers. They are responsible for writing and presenting weekly certificates during assembly, which celebrate class mates who have acted as role models for the rest of the class.
Our Ambassadors take on specific roles across each term. From showing prospective families around the school to assisting the Principal interview, as part of a staff recruitment process. We believe that this role helps children gain in confidence and improve their public speaking.
Our wellbeing representatives are responsible for ensuring that all Frome Vale Citizens are happy and healthy in school. They meet once a term with the aim of sharing ways to improve physical and mental wellbeing for all. Wellbeing representatives have been focusing on supporting their peers to eat a healthy, balanced lunch to improve all aspects of physical and mental wellbeing, as well as acting a friendly face for other pupils.
Equalities Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)
This is a new Pupil Voice group made up of a diverse group of pupils from all year groups . They will meet termly with a focus of learning to understand what EDI is. It will ask pupils their views about their Curriculum what would they like to learn connected to EDI? The group will be looking at the Equality Act, Disabilities and other Inclusion issues. Pupils will be able to debate and discuss different topics and help to implement their ideas within our whole School Ethos.. We want everyone to learn respect and understanding for every pupil and member of staff so we can all learn to embrace each other’s differences in a calm and happy School Environment.
The community group is comprised of representatives from every class at Frome Vale. Our group aims to support and raise awareness of issues and events in our school and local community. Past initiatives have involved raising money for Christmas Jumper day and donating supplies to the East Bristol foodbank.
