Pupil Voice

Well done to the achievers for this term. You have worked super hard and have been noticed by your teachers and other staff in school.

Well done to our achievers for this half term. Your teachers have commented on being kind, creative and hard working. Keep up the great work.

Our whole school celebrated the feast of St Edward today with the parish in church. Thank you to our new Chaplaincy Team, some new altar servers and our new assistant priest Fr Philip for leading us so respectfully. It was a lovely celebration.

Hi we are the school chaplaincy team. It is our responsibility to plan and deliver creative assemblies and acts of worship across the school. It is our hope that our liturgies, inspired by Scripture, will inspire you to act and behave as God wants us to.

As well as creating our own liturgies we are also tasked with helping children in KS2 and KS1 with theirs; we support with ideas and helping children use the correct planning sheets.

If there is anything you would like to know about our team or how we fulfil our duties as school chaplains please come and ask us.

Thanks to our Chaplaincy Team who planned & led us in Mass to celebrate All Saints Day. A special mention for Sam from Year 5 & @NottmCathMusic  who led our singing with such enthusiasm. Congratulations to our two latest Parish Ambassadors who have joined the altar serving team.

OLSE has been busier than Parliament in recent weeks and were able to introduce their new Chaplaincy Team, House Captains, School Councillors, Well-being Champions and Pupil Librarians to the whole school. #pupilvoice #listenedto

Congratulations to the children who received a kindness award from our Well-Being Champions. Your actions outside in the playground really do make a difference. Well done to the children who won a cuddly fruit or vegetable from our healthy lunches competition last week.

Our Well-Being Champions organised Kindness Week with Mrs Nicholson. Throughout the week they led games and activities out on all the playground. There was so many kind words and actions on display. #bekind

Well done to our children who received our Kindness Award from our Well-being Champions during our Celebration Assembly. You were recognised for your kind words and actions throughout this week.

Our role is to help you when you are playing on the playground. If you are having trouble finding a friend to play with we will point you in the right direction or play with you ourselves. We also help you if you’re having problems within your friendship groups. It is also our job to give you a little advice on how to play fairly and appropriately with our playground equipment.

To help spot us easily on the playground we wear our bright coloured bibs and our sunshine badges.

We are the School Council and represent one aspect of Pupil Voice in our school. Our team is made up of children from Year 1 to Year 6 who have been elected by their peers.

We have many jobs as School Councillors:

Firstly we listen to the ideas of our classmates and take them to our council meetings. Here we discuss your suggestions and decide if they are possible.

In addition we have to represent all pupils in the school during meetings with Mrs Byrne. During these meetings we talk about your suggestions and the possibility of them happening.
As well as attending meetings we are also part of the interview team for any new member of staff. All interview candidates are interviewed by us and we then feed our thoughts back to Mrs Byrne and the Senior Leadership Team

Finally we are also responsible for buying new equipment for the school playground. So if there is anything you would like write it down and put it in your School Council wallet.

Our library is open every day for students to come and read a wide selection of books. There are lots of comfy chairs and bean bags to snuggle down into and get lost in a good book! Our library is overseen by Miss Greenwood and our excellent librarians from year 5. Every day they help children from other classes choose a good book and make sure the library is always tidy.  Every fortnight children are allowed to bring home a book from the library to help expand their reading range. What will you read next?

ECO team met this week to tidy up our peace garden. We dug up the rest of our old autumn carrots and Mrs J took them to the stables for the horses. We composted weeds and will continue to tidy next week!

OLSE ECO team have met for the first time today. We have learned about what it means to have an ECO team in school and have gathered our ideas to help us achieve a greener way of life at OLSE. Well done.

OLSE Eco-School Team

We are the OLSE Eco-team (two pupils representing each year group) and we meet most weeks (with the help of Mrs Nicholson and Mrs Harrison) to work towards making our school a more sustainable and environmentally friendly place to be.

We are guided by Pope Francis and his mission to encourage us all to ‘Live Simply’, thinking about how the way we live our lives affects others and our planet.

We launched our endeavour to be an Eco School in September 2019 with a special ‘Green Day’ – each class undertaking creative and learning activities in order to develop awareness of the crisis facing our planet and how we can help make our school a more environmentally friendly place.

Who we are and what we do
