Riverside Primary School recognises the importance of the pupil voice and making them part of the decision making process.
The school has an elected School Council. KS2 pupils at the school are given a chance to vote for a boy and girl from their year group after reading their Manifesto. Y2 children join the School Council in the Summer Term in preparation for the following school year. All classes have class councils.
The Council represents the pupils and puts forward new ideas, suggestions and ways of solving problems.
Over the last year the School Council have managed to make a number of changes to help improve the school, including starting a Healthy Eating Tuck Shop and campaigning for a new activity trail and waste bins in the Playground.
