Above - Members of our school council with the Christmas Cards our children have made for the patients at Luton and Dunstable Hospital who will be in hospital during the Christmas period.
At St. Augustine's Academy, our pupils are given a voice and make contributions towards how the school is run. Our Pupil Leaders play a very important role in this.
Near the beginning of every academic year, each class from Reception through to Year 6 vote for two pupils, a boy and a girl, who they believe are excellent roles models and would be good ambassadors for our school. These children then form the School Council.
The School Council meets regularly with a senior member of staff to discuss a range of issues; they help to organise fundraising events such as Children in Need and represent the school at various community events.
In addition, pupils also have the opportunity to become part of the Road Safety Council, Worship Team, Eco Team or a Sports Leader. Each group of leaders play a vital role in helping our school to grow and develop.
If your child has a suggestion or comment about school life then please encourage them to raise it with a Pupil Leader who will then share the idea at one of their meetings.
