Pupil voice is very important in influencing decisions and learning at Albany. In recent years we have had a School Council, Eco-committee, Anti-Bullying Ambassadors, Rights Racoons, Super Ambassadors and Digital leaders. All of these have made our school a better place to be and have been excellent ways of developing pupils confidence and involving them in decision making processes in the school.
As well as visiting Parliament our School Council have the opportunity to meet with local councillors and our Eco-committee are working with the community initiative 'Keep Roath Tidy'. The anti-bullying Ambassadors work to ensure that children are happy in school and understand what bullying is and what to do if they feel they or someone else are being bullied. The Super Ambassadors are working to ensure that pupils across the school are aware of children's rights and this year we have introduced the Rights Racoons to help in our work towards becoming a UNICEF Rights Respecting School.
At the end of last year we reflected on the roles of the pupil voice groups and discussed that there was a lot of overlap in roles so this year have decided to introduce SENEDD ALBANY. This is a group of 30 pupils elected from classes in Y2-6 and through discussions with the Senedd we have decided upon ministers and committees to support key areas of school. These will each have their own web page so the children can share their aims and work they are involved in. This page will show information from full Senedd Albany Meetings.
