2nd November 2018
On Friday 2nd of November we held our ‘Heads’ Meeting’ – it’s called ‘Head’s Meeting because it involves all of the Heads across our Federation – Mrs Hutt (Head of Schools MIJS), Mr Hopkins (Head of School Bacton), Mr Wakeman (Executive Head), Mrs Edwards (Chair of Govs) and our 3 Head Girls (Sarah-Jane, Charley and Daisy) 3 Head Boys (Patrick, Nathan and Noah)
We met at a local cafe to have a drink and a piece of cake and then talked about all sorts of school related issues. We started by asking them to fill in an OfSTED Pupil Survey which helped us to understand how they feel about school life. More detail on that later.
We then asked them to tell us what they liked about being a Head Girl/Boy – they said that they liked; doing assemblies, visiting the foodbank, reading out poems for Harvest, Tours of the schools involving meet and greets. We also asked them what else they would like to do and they said they’d like to; perhaps have a place on the News Sheet to write something, do a whole school assembly by themselves (perhaps to do with online-bullying during Anti-bullying week) and help us to see how they could improve the schools further by completing an evaluation with us.
As you can see from the photographs, whilst we worked very hard, we also had some fun which is what being a good Head Girl and Boy is all about – balancing learning with having fun!
We will be meeting again after Christmas
