At St Michael’s we take a proactive view on anti-bullying to ensure all pupils are free from bullying or harassment.
The bench is located near to the peace pathway and the green container, an anti-bullier will be near the bench at all times.
Rules of the bench
No standing on or misuse of the bench
Not to be used during P.E times
Maximum of 4 children per side
To be used when-
You feel sad, lonely, miserable and have nobody to play with.
Not to be used when-
You are injured or feel poorly (you should tell an MDA and if necessary you will be sent inside)
You feel angry (you need to use a timeout card and sit on a bench)
At St Michael’s the Learning Council is made up with nominated representatives from each year group from Year 2 to Year 6. Every pupil in the school has an opportunity to stand for elections and vote for who they wish to represent them on the council. The representatives act as liaison officers between the council and their peers. The children discuss ideas as a class prior to meetings and the reps take these ideas to the council where all collective ideas are discussed and decisions made about how to take these ideas forward. The outcomes are then fed back to the classes.
