 This term we have representatives from years 1-4.  Each of us put ourselves forward in a class election and were successful in being voted for as ambassadors. We are very proud f our important role within the school.  We look forward to welcoming two representatives from our Early Years class in the Spring Term.  We will support the Ladybirds in writing a manifesto and putting themselves forward for election. 

Mrs Hampshire meets with us every Tuesday lunchtime to plan events, discuss issues and talk about what is on our agenda.  

 We have an RRS Action Plan which we follow...you can read our most recent action plan here!  RRS Action Plan 2017-2018.  We also have a copy of our action plan which we use for the school to see up on our display board.  Action Plan for the Children 2017-2018.
We have important aspects of the school to run, such as Fairtrade, and fundraising which we organise events for.  We make sure that everyone understands and remembers how important it is to be part of our Rights Respecting School.

 Here are some of our most recent projects...

Anti-Bullying Policy

At the beginning of this year (September 2017) we ensured that the next item on our anti bullying agenda was evident in every classroom.  We re launched our worry boxes as 'chatter boxes' to make sure that we are giving everybody a voice and that everybody is being listened to. We have had some good feedback about 'Chatter Boxes' so far!
