At Petteril Bank Community School we promote the idea of being a listening school where children’s views are valued. Each class elects a representative to form the School Council, which meets regularly throughout the term. Class representatives raise concerns and put forward suggestions as to how certain aspects of school life can be managed or improved after class discussions. The children are able to submit their own suggestions in our School Council suggestions box and they are also encouraged to nominate a star pupil each half term.
