The role of the Primary 7 Leadership Team is to help to improve our school and make it even more successful!

The primary 7 pupils had to apply to be in the leadership team and they then had an interview with the pupil council.

The pupils who were chosen to be in the leadership team will be involved in different activities throughout the school year. They will be involved in our open afternoon for prospective new pupils, they will be used as a focus group if we need to get an idea of pupils’ thoughts on any school matters, they will work beside the pupil council on leading initiatives within the school, but most importantly they will be good roles models for all of our pupils in Burgh.

The Pupil Council is a group of children who represent all the pupils in the school.  The role of the Pupil Council is to ensure that all children in the school are listened to and that they have the opportunity to make changes which will make the school even better. Each class has a representative on the pupil council. The Pupil Council meet every four weeks. Mrs McAulay attends the meetings as an adviser.
The Pupil Council in Burgh is a really important group as they ensure that;
  • everyone is involved in school decisions
  • pupils get the chance to talk about what they like about the school and how they think they could make the school even better
  • we listen to everybody’s ideas
  • our pupils are happy and feel a sense of belonging in our school

Our Rights Respecting School committee works together to ensure that all pupils, parents and staff learn about the UNCRC. The rights committee organise lots of different assemblies and events within the school. In June 2015, the committee welcomed assessors from UNICEF to our school, they were so impressed with the work of the group that our school was awarded a Level One Rights Respecting School award!

Every year we choose two Junior Road Safety Officers. This year (2014/15) Drew and Demi are our Junior Road Safety Officers. 

Their job throughout the year is to raise awareness of road safety issues. This is done through organising competitions for the children and speaking to pupils in their classes and at assemblies.

Drew & Demi have already ran the Road Safety Calendar Competition and will be talking to each class about Road Safety throughout the year as this is covered in Health and Wellbeing.
