2020 - 2021
This year has not quite got off to the same start for the Pupil Leadership Team. However, the members of the team have been busy working hard in school and helping to promote their sub-teams. Our Curriculum looks great and the children comment on how much they are enjoying their topics. We are all adhering to the THRIVE approach in school to help support emotional well-being. Each week the class teachers will choose a Positive Person for one of the six characteristics (Penny Pride, Rocky Resilience, Coco Creativity, Reggie Reflection, Iggy Independence or Coral and Carter Collaboration) which supports our attitudes towards our learning.
We are hoping that we will be able to go back to our weekly meetings soon and fundraising events! We will keep you posted.
Thank you Miss Campbell and the PLT members.
Over the next two weeks the PLT sub-teams will be meeting with members of the Senior Leadership Team to discuss areas throughout school. The curriculum champions will be meeting with Mr Goodman to look at how the curriculum is delivered in school. All of the PLT will be spending a day with Mrs Driver looking at lessons, books and behaviour. They will be looking at all of the amazing learning which takes place at NCJS. As well as this the well-being warriors will be meeting up with Mrs Wardle to discuss personal development of the children at NCJS. The attitude ambassador's will be meeting with Miss Campbell to discuss behaviour at what children's attitude towards learning looks like.
The PLT are still working on ideas for fundraising events to raise money towards our school defibrillator. If you have any cool suggestions please see a member of the PLT so that they can discuss them at their next meeting on Monday 27th January at 12:30pm.
We have now set up our sub-teams within the P.L.T so we all having an area to help lead.

Welcome back after the Summer break, we do hope you had lots of fun. The Pupil Leaderhsip team is up and running again with new recruits! They are keen to to get busy and help develop school further. Keep checking in for updates and if you have any suggestions please ask your child to have a chat with them throughout the school day at some point.
Don't forget that the PLT are holding a Bake Sale for Red Nose Day on Friday 15th March during playtime. Children can bake a cake and sale it for 50p a slice, all money raised will go towards the charity. The PLT will also choose a Star Baker from each year group! After school there will also be an opportunity to splat some teachers with a wet sponge for only 20p a go! Again all money will go towards the charity.
Remember the children can also come in their own clothes on this day, if they would like to.
This half term the Pupil Leadership Team have been busy working on lots of projects within school, such as a bird watching competition. The Pupil Leadership Team have been collating all of the information, collected by the children at N.C.J.S and will be submitting it to RSPB, fingers crossed we win!
As well as this the team have been coming up with ideas for Red Nose Day (15th March 2019) and will be sending out a leaflet for children, parents and carers with all of the information included.
Week beginning 4th February. The team also met with Mrs Driver. They discussed the bird watching competition, reading ideas for at home and also a healthy tuck shop! Following this meeting the team created a questionnaire and all children's view points were gathered. The team are currently work on the findings to feedback to Mrs Driver... watch this space!
Next half term the children will be fundraising for Red Nose Day and also raising awareness for World Autism Day. The children are also very excited as they are going to be carrying out some learning walks with the senior leadership. It will give the children the opportunity to see the children at Newhall working hard and having lots of fun in their lessons.
This year for Children in Need we held a Great British Newhall Bake Off for all of the children and had a fantastic response. There were lots of cake entries making it very difficult for the Pupil Leadership Team to choose a winning cake. They were all very delicious and looked amazing! Here are the winning bakers...

2nd Place: Jayden S
3rd Place: Matthew Mansfield

As well as the children baking cakes, they have brought in pennies for Pudsey and wore their spots to support Children in Need! A huge well done to everyone that took part! Please take a look at some of the photographs from what has been a huge success. All of the cakes went down a treat at playtime and there was not a single crumb left in sight. We will let you know the overall total of how much money N.C.J.S raised for Children in Need.
N.C.J.S is the place to be!

Big shout out to the team that met some parents and our parent governor earlier on this month. They introduced themselves with confidence and talked about the Pupil Leadership Team with pride. Well done!
Our first Pupil Leadership Team meeting is due to take place on Friday (14th September) and the children are very excited. They have been busy talking to the children of NCJS on the playground and they have been gathering ideas in their leadership books. Myself and Mrs Weaver cannot wait to get started and hear what the children have been finding out.
