We are pleased to announce that our circle group sessions are up and running. All children participate in mixed age circle group meetings every other Tuesday to allow all children an opportunity to discuss ways to improve the school. We use this instead of a School Council so that every child has a voice in making The Oaks even better. Each group consists of a mixture of children from each class and age group as well as teachers, LSAs and office staff. The circle groups are led by Year 6 children.
We have a shared agenda for the week and decisions are made collectively. This mix of ages and classes helps increase kindness, tolerance and understanding between year groups. Topics that might be discussed include improving the school grounds, ideas for school themed days and many new initiates and ideas from the children.
We will keep you updated on any future issues/debates that occur during these meetings.
