Pupil Voice

We see our community as a Moorlands Family of which children are at the centre.

We offer Moorlands Children lots of opportunities to take part in school life and make a difference to the school community.

We encourage all children in our Federation to take on roles and responsibilities and provide them with lots of opportunities to do so.

Through working together, making the right choices and demonstrating our schools’ personal goals each class is able to collect class points. Each week, the class with the most class points is awarded our school mascot, Black Beauty, to keep for the week – something the children take great pride in.

Each child in Moorlands belongs to a House.  Our Houses were the result of a competition at the school and are Emerald, Diamond, Ruby and Sapphire.  Our winning pupil chose gems because

we are all priceless and precious like jewels and we all shine

Children can collect house points for individual achievements and the House with the most points gets a ‘treat’ at the end of the year.  Children from our Year 6 group act as House Captains.  We have a Federation Sports Day every year and children work together in their house teams.

We have a school Council who are elected by their classmates and who represent the views of their class and the whole school. We also have a Green Team of Moorlands Eco Warriors made up of representatives from each class.  Their aim is to tackle a range of issues, making our schools an even better and more sustainable environment and helping us work towards our Silver Eco Schools Award.  We also  have an elected Tech Team who are responsible for helping around the classroom and school with tech issues, including the newly installed sound system in our halls.
