The Learning Squad was established to enable greater pupil participation in decision making.
The research the Learning Squad carries out ensures that pupils are able to participate fully in shaping important aspects of the work of the school and significantly raises standards in well-being.
The Learning Squad are children from Year 3 to Year 6. Following a series of introductory sessions the pupils become expert researchers in school. Sessions highlight various aspects of research:
What is research?
What do researchers do?
What can we find out from research?
How do we collect data?
How do we analyse data?
The Learning Squad discuss areas that they would like to research within the school. These may include the school library, reward systems, behaviour charter, teaching and learning and pupils' well-being in school. The pupils choose the area they would like research. All the discussions are child-led and the member of staff acts as a facilitator.
