At Crombie, we enable pupil voice in a number of ways.
We have a Pupil Council which represents the pupils’ voice. Pupils from P2 to P7 go through a formal election process i.e. nomination, election, talk, voting, to be their year representatives. Two pupils, one boy and one girl, are subsequently elected as pupil councillors and hold office for one year. To support them with this a depute boy and girl are also elected and stand up in their absence.
Throughout the year the ‘Council’ will meet regularly with staff members, be involved in discussions and take forward a variety of initiatives. In the past these have included supporting fundraising for selected charities and implementing changes to the school.
Pupil Council comments:
P2: “I think that it is fun!”
P5: “I like the Pupil Council because you get to help out with the school.”
P7: ”In the Pupil Council we help make lots of money for special events.”
Pupil Eco Group
We also have pupil representatives from P2 – P7 that help maintain the school eco-courtyard and gather suggestions from the whole school on how we can be more environmentally friendly.
