The purpose of the Ethos Group – GIFT – Growing In Faith Together – is to further develop the pupil voice and the children’s involvement in school decision-making.
Why have an Ethos group?
The Ethos Group, GIFT, supports our school in developing our Christian distinctiveness and work to promote the school core Christian values.
The group would reports to the Head Teacher and the Governing Body about what it has discussed, planned and done. The Ethos Group work with other adults, children, parents, clergy and church members to develop positive working relationships. The work of the Ethos Group would be recorded in our School Development Plan and they would have an active role in developing part of the plan.
What does the Ethos Group do?
Meets fortnightly to discuss aspects of our commitment to our Christian ethos and values with the meetings minuted. (see minutes attached below)
How the children were chosen?
The children interested in become a member of the GIFT Ethos Group expressed an interest by writing a letter to Mrs Hunter, Mrs Abbott and Mrs Fenwick (Foundation Governors). They outlined why they wanted to be involved in the Ethos Group ‘GIFT” and what they could bring to the group.
Group members were chosen from Years 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
