Pupils voices help Bruche secure gold standard


PUPILS voices at Bruche Primary School, Warrington have helped the school win a prestigious award.
The children’s views about their school are constantly recorded by teachers and their feedback used to improve learning and school life.
And the importance placed at the school on “pupil voice” along with other aspects of school life has been recognised with a gold level National Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural (SMSC) Quality Mark.
A quality mark assessor visited the school in October and their report highlighted the importance placed on pupil voice at the school, the children’s pride in their school and the focus on wellbeing and healthy lifestyles.
The assessor added: “The children are very proud of their school and were able to discuss the importance of British values and their understanding of democracy. They described their favourite learning opportunities with eloquence and confidence.
“I was told, ‘Everyone likes it here.’ Every child is a mental health ambassador, and the children understand the importance of healthy lifestyles. One child told me, ‘If you’re lucky, you might get to work here!’”
Executive headteacher Chris Jones said: “At Bruche, SMSC is essential to the academic progress of our pupils. It doesn’t happen in isolation – it saturates through our school and is linked to everything we do, it is in our ethos and attitude. SMSC is
the foundation of our well-planned learning, enabling children and all staff who work with them, to flourish. This award is a significant achievement for our children, staff, parents and governors.”
Bruche Primary is one of seven primary schools that make up of Warrington Primary Academy Trust (WPAT), a community of more than 2,100 children aged 2 to 11.
Pictured with the award are Bruche pupils Max Rudd, Daisy
Coyne, Dahlia Shaffer Picton, William Round, Layla-Rose Stewart and Jackson Keir.
