At Leiston Primary School we believe in encouraging positive relationships between adults and pupils, and also amongst pupils themselves. We wish to give every child ‘a voice’ to share their opinions on their learning, their classroom and school environment and an opportunity to share any concerns they may have.
The ‘Learning Council’ is made up of two children from each class who have been elected to represent their class. They meet regularly with leadership teams to discuss learning – what is working well, what they enjoy and how it could be even better.
Class 1 (Year 5): Tyler Linge and Fathimah Danis
Class 2 (Year 6): Leah Walker and Rabbi Miah
Class 3 (Year 6): Jake Hollis and Ebonie Lee
Class 7 (Year 4): Tj Hart and George Hurren
Class 8 (Year 3): Jadon Rice and Enjie Chen
Class 9 (Year 2/3): Connor Norman and Matilda King
Class 10 (Year 2): Robert Hart and Amber McGinn
Class 12 (Year 1): Tyler Chambers and Rio Miley

Class 14 (Year 1/R): Darcey Ellis and Amber Smith
Every two weeks the whole school splits into mixed age groups to discuss school issues and improvements. These range from discussing what is being learned and how; to lunchtime clubs and playground equipment. The meetings are led by Year 6 children, who record the minutes which are then shared for all to see.
A team consisting of children from years 4, 5 and 6 who help and support staff by encouraging positive play and use of equipment in the playgrounds at play and lunch.
