Mrs Uttley is the teacher who helps us.
We had our first meeting to introduce ourselves and to decide on what our mission statement, or motto, was going to be for this year. We came up with the one above. For most of us in this group, it is the first time we have been elected to be a Pupil Voice Co-ordinator and we are super excited to have been chosen this year! At our meeting we also decided on our action plan for the year. We are going to be doing the following:
“Sports for all - All for sport.”
Our new pupil voice team have been busy collecting information from their peers regarding clubs and groups they would like to see in school this year. They will soon be feeding back to Miss Pennington and Mrs Wilton, who will try to put some of their ideas into place.
Phoebe and Ethan have been doing a great job presenting sports reports in our Friday worship. Cayden and Rafal have been busy taking photos of our sporting superstars and the rest of the team are making sure that our playtime equipment is returned carefully at the end of break times.
In our recent meeting, the children reported back that the playground equipment is still not being used properly and needs monitoring further before they think about ordering any new kit.
The children had also conducted some research into clubs that each class wants to be offered as an extra-curricular activity. Some suggestions were drawing club, dance, basketball and dodgeball. Miss Pennington fed this information back to Mrs Wilton (clubs co-ordinator) and she is looking into this for us. Phoebe is also going to work with Sude to come up with a suitable dance routine for Year 2/3 children and will deliver this as an after school club, supervised by Miss Gahagan.
We also discussed the visit from former Olympian Daniel Purvis. If you would like to check our out photos from the event, please click on our PE curriculum page. The children had spoken to their peers and the feedback from the visit was extremely positive. They would like other high profile visitors to come into school to inspire them in the future. They suggested possibly an artist or dancer. They are going to ask their classes and see what suggestions they can come up with.
''To promote the emotional health and well-being of each and every member of our school.''
''We want to help people in school, in our community and around the world.''
Chorley Hedgehog Rescue Centre
The Community Group raised £40.20 for the Chorley Hedgehog Rescue Centre. They baked and sold hedgehog biscuits in school and encouraged children to bring in donations of old towels and dressing gowns which they kindly donated to the charity too. Well done!
'' Building strong foundations on our rock - Jesus.''
Hello everyone and welcome to the Worship Pupil Voice Section of the website. Thank you for your patience whilst waiting for this section to be updated.
Our group is involved in planning and delivering engaging acts of worship in school. This year so far we have helped with the planning of Worship, delivered Creative Worship and have been involved in leading other worship across the year.
If you have any ideas or feedback about Worship in school please speak to one of us.
''We aim to promote a school environment where everyone has the same rights, responsibilities are shared and everyone is fully respected. We will work hard to make sure that we model these values.''
“We want to protect the planet from pollution. We want to protect animals from suffering.
We want our school to be clean and green.”
We met for the first time and created our action plan. We have lots of ideas for what we want to change this year.
We are planning Green Week! This will be the first week back after half term.
We will be doing lots of activities: presenting a launch assembly, raising money for sustainable plates and cutlery by doing a bake sale, do a zero waste packed lunch competition and encourage all classes to do their bit to help the environment.
Keep a look out for photos and updates!
The Community Group

Rights, Respect & Responsibilities Group
“We aim to promote a school environment that respects each other FULLY. We will work hard to make sure that EVERYBODY in our school has the same rights.”
Billy L (Y2), Olivia W (Y3), Maisie S (Y4), Daniel B (Y6), Miss Bryan (Y3 Class teacher)
We are a group of hard-working students who want to promote a school environment where all children have the same rights, share responsibilities and are equally respected.
We meet with Miss Bryan to discuss issues that we find within school and with the aim of promoting respect.
RESPECT DAY @ ST JAMES'
We are planning to hold a respect day to raise awareness of the importance of respecting everyone around us.
We are also trying to find solutions to the problems we encounter with the junior cloakrooms. We are looking forward to meeting with Mr Hudson to see if we can bounce our ideas off each other. We believe we should all have the right to better storage of our personal belongings and that it should be everyone's responsibilty to respect all belongings in the cloakrooms.
