We believe passionately in actively preparing our pupils for their future in society. It is essential to build strong foundations that will make a real difference to their future and we believe that cultural capital is about giving children the best possible start to prepare for future success. Lady Boswell’s School imbues its pupils with knowledge and skill through their involvement in leadership and community roles as well as a healthy participation in competitive sport.
We have a school council which allows the children in school to have a voice. The council discusses changes and developments that the body of pupils may wish to have discussed in a suitable forum. Each class has two school council members, voted for by their classmates and each classroom has a suggestion box in which ideas can be posted for their councillors to take to the next School Council Meeting.
During Parliament Week at the beginning of each year, the School votes on what they would like the School Council representatives to focus on. For the last academic year, it was decided to focus on sport within school.
Playground Prefects are appointed each year. The Prefects, from Year 5, are each appointed a time to join the children on the KS1 playground. Their role is to help support the children, encourage friendships and inclusion and to teach the children global games.
The Sports Leaders, appointed each year, have a role in organising and planning clubs for children from Years R to 6. They deliver a variety of clubs from athletics, football through to Tag Rugby.
Each class elects two representatives for the Eco Council. This council discusses eco-issues and has a voice in improving the school's green status. During the last academic year, the children became increasingly passionate about recycling and arranged for large recycling bins to be delivered to School to help encourage this.
We were delighted a number of years ago to receive our Eco Silver award!
