School Council & Leadership Team
Gilwern School has an active School Council, which is represented by pupils from across the school. Meetings are held each half term and give pupils the opportunity to discuss issues of importance to them. The School Council plays an important role in many of the decisions affecting daily school life. Views of all children are sought to ensure the School Council is inclusive.
This year they will be focussing on helping to realise the schools vision of Nurture Empower Achieve.
The School Council and Leadership Team want to make small changes that feed into the bigger picture of the changes for the new curriculum in Wales.
By the end of the year we want all our learners to be:
Healthy Confident Individuals
Ethical Informed Citizens
Ambitious Capable Learners
Enterprising Creative Contributors
Through the introduction of Values Based Education the school council lead meetings to discuss what values inspire children, young people and adults to adopt and live positive human values. The focus of Values Based Education is to develop ethical and emotional intelligence, deepen relationships and social cohesion and embed a strong values-based culture to give students the best chance of academic success.
As a result, the school council have chosen ten values to explore each month throughout the academic year, one of which is celebrated at the end of each month. The Head Boy and Girl lead the whole school assembly encouraging representatives from each class to share what they have found out.
