Pupil Voice

We have a strong, active School Council who meet on a regular basis. All the councillors have been elected by their peers and they participate in the life of the Academy. Councillors from all classes across Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 are involved in trying to improve our amazing school.

The School Council are the brains behind charity fundraising days at school (e.g. Comic Relief and Children in Need) which they plan, organise and run. The children have also been involved in the review of the curriculum. They discuss issues that they feel are important and input into the school development plan.

After very successful fundraising for the school’s new Sensory Room, the School Council are currently involved in a bid to try and win £500 funding from ‘Think Big 2020’ for a special project to further improve our school.

They have achieved the Gold Learner Participation Award for School Councils.  This is in recognition of the strong pupil voice at Falmouth Primary Academy.
The school council are currently working with Surfers Against Sewage, as the school is working towards their Plastic Free School Award.  They are also working with the Woodland Trust on their Green Tree Award.
In addition to our school council, we also have well-being champions who were selected by their peers, they ensure that pupils' well-being is well looked after.
We also have a team of science ambassadors who support with developing science across the school as well as sharing exciting scientific facts with their peers.
