At Raynsford, we strongly believe that every child has the right to say what they think in all matters affecting them and to have their views taken seriously. Pupils at Raynsford will develop the confidence, through their experience of an exclusive rights-respecting school community, to play an active role in their own learning and to speak and act for the rights of all to be respected locally and globally. To this end children are encouraged to take up Leadership roles in many different aspects of school life.
Rights Respecting School Ambassadors
Each child belongs to an Owl Family:
- Barn Owl,
- Tawny Owl,
- Short-Eared Owl,
- Long-Eared Owl and
- Snowy Owl
These families are represented by a colour. The Owl Family has members from each year group and two children from Year 5 represent each their Owl Family in the Owl Parliament. The Owl Parliament meets regularly to discuss issues relating to school life.
Children will be split into their Owl Family for school events such as sports day and special learning days, as well as being part of our PE uniform (replacing the white t-shirts previously worn). T-shirts in the Owl colours for you to purchase. (please purchase direct from school to ensure conformity of colours).
Our Sports Ambassadors receive training from the Redborne Sports Partnership and regularly lead Sports Clubs at lunchtimes and play a central role in school encouraging everyone to particpate in physical activities.
Climate change and caring for our environment is a worldwide concern and here at Raynsford we are continually looking for ways to look after not just the school grounds and buildings but what we can do to help ensure that we protect our world by educating others on this topic.
Digital Leaders are chosen from our Year 5 class and are responsible for helping to ensure that the equipment - laptops and ipads are looked after carefully and charged regularly. They are also encouraged to help other pupils in computing and other lessons where the digital equipment is used.
