Kentmere Academy

Pupil Voice

At Kentmere Academy, we cherish the opportunities for our students to make a difference to the day to day running of school life. Pupil voice is a range of different areas where Kentmere Academy students can make a positive impact to different elements that make up the running of the school. The areas below explain how our students are able to get involved.

The Prefect Council

The Prefect Council

The Prefect Council were chosen by a panel of judges after giving a presentation to the Year 5/6 children. They meet Mrs Isberg once a week and discuss
the school, events they would like to raise money for and many other areas of school life.

The Sports Crew

The Sports Crew

The Sports Crew are a team of dedicated students who ensure that the sporting provision at Kentmere runs smoothly. Students have various duties such as organising activities, making sure the equipment is kept tidy and helping to keep people safe during sporting competitions. Our Sports Crew is very important to ensuring that the sporting activities at Kentmere Academy are kept to the highest of standards.

The Eco Council

The Eco Council

The Eco-council was established in May 2016 and consists of children from Year 2 to 6. We meet on a fortnightly basis and discuss a range of issues linked to Eco topics.
We have now achieved our Silver Award and are working towards achieving our Green Flag.

What have we done so far?
 Fruit trees planted
 Over 200 trees planted along the edge of the school field
 Signs near all taps used by the children to encourage them to save water
 Litter pickers purchased and rota set up
 Paper recycle bins in every classroom and central area
 Some vegetables grown in the Secret Garden
 RSPB visited EYFS and KS1 and completed different activities (all linked to their topics)
 United Utilities visited Year 3/4 to discuss saving water (linked to their topic)

To succeed we need:
• Every member of the school community to take part in a pledge as to how they will save water
• To develop our planting and growing more
• For children to understand the need to reduce, reuse, recycle to help protect animals around the world
• For our Eco work to be embedded in every class, not just the responsibility of Eco council, gardening club etc.
