Pupil Parliament will be resuming their Safer Parking campaign on Friday 9th February. Look out for us in our High Viz jackets before school in the mornings. Come and speak to us about any ideas or solutions you have to improve the problems with traffic around the two schools.
Pupil Parliament Development Plan
MPPs have been working alongside Miss Bates, to write our own development plan for how we would like the Pupil Parliament to evolve over this school year. This is an important document, similar to the school's own Self Evaluation Form. All the ideas came from the MPPs ourselves and Miss Bates just had to type up the final version and help us with the wording of some of the actions and outcomes. Please take some time to read the attached document. If you have any queries, speak to your class MPP or find one of the MPPs on the playground and chat to them about it. (Year 3 - Friday break time, Year 4,5 6 - Monday break time.
Children In Need - 17th November 2017
This year the Pupil Parliament (helped by Miss Tartaglia) thought up a new strategy to increase the amount of money raised during this charity event - The Spot Hunt! This activity involved the MPPs hiding coloured spots and Pudsies all over the Year Three field. Children could pay £1 to find as many spots as possible and the person who found the most spots won a prize. Finding a Pudsey meant an instant prize; there were five of these hidden in tricky locations.
We raised a total of £650 for this worthy cause. Thank you to everyone who donated money and took part in the fund-raising events.

The Pupil Parliament think that PE is good at Bedgrove school when:
School Development Plan

During our recent meetings, MPPs have been giving their opinions about the 4 key areas of the school development plan (Leadership & Management, Teaching & Learning, Behaviour & Welfare and Outcomes for Pupils).
We have had to discuss and consider the following questions:
Mrs Greco was really impressed with the depth and understanding of the MPP's responses and is now looking at a way of incorporating their ideas into the main School Development Plan.
