We value children's opinions at Moreland and there are a number of ways that children can contribute their ideas and opinions to school life. These include School Council, Eco Team and Digital Leaders. Children also elect a Head Boy and Head Girl and their Deputies every September.
At Moreland children are taught about Global Citizenship. As part of this curriculum children learn about:
Equality and Rights:
Respect for Others:
Throughout their learning in Global Citizenship they develop skills that support them to think about these issues, consider different perspectives, develop empathy, articulate different view points, reflect, manage uncertainty, resolve conflicts and take part in informed direct action. This gives children a voice around these complex, universal issues, the chance to debate with others, present their ideas in different ways, take part in representation and make a difference to their community.
We incorporate learning about British Values, the UN Sustainable Development Goals and Rights Respecting Schools.
Have a look at the links to find out more about how children at Moreland are making a difference.
Every September we hold our elections for Head Girl and Head Boy. Children in Year 6 who wish to stand each write a manifesto which they share with the school during an election assembly. All the children from Year 1 up and staff then get to vote at our Polling Station for the candidates they prefer. Children are taught about democracy and the electoral system of the UK as part of the election process.
A School Council is group of children who are elected to represent the views of all pupils within the school. The Aim of the elected representatives is to help and support the school and its pupils to improve.

We have successful achieved our Green Flag status for 2021 and we have now started on our Eco Schools journey for this year.
October 21 we have had our first meeting and discussed why we wanted to join the Eco team.
We have started our Environmental Review beginning with School Grounds.
In our next meeting we will continue to work through the review and look at the COP26 resources to see how we can get involved with climate change and how we can make Moreland, our homes and the world a better more sustainable place.
See below for COP26 resources:
We will meet every 2 weeks to monitor and review Eco issues at our school. We will create an action plan and work towards making our school more sustainable.
Eco-Schools was founded in 1994, operates in 67 countries and engages 19.5 million young people globally. This makes Eco-Schools the largest educational programme on the planet.
The Seven Step framework supports young people of all ages and abilities to work together to plan, deliver, monitor and evaluate environmental actions in their school. Participating in the programme:
When creating an Action Plan, Eco-Committees choose three topics (five topics for those renewing an existing Eco-Schools Green Flag) to work on. Eco-Committees select the three (or five) topics they would like to work on from the Ten Eco-Schools topics below.
We initially met via zoom during lockdown and we carried out our Environmental Review. It took a couple of meetings to complete and we had to ask our Head of School, Business Manager and Premises Manager to help us with some of it.
Designed to review our learning environment and provide inspiration for topics that we want to explore.
Following our Environmental Review we we could see our strengths and areas for development, we used these along with our own experiences and observations to choose three topics to explore.
Areas of Interest
We had a vote and chose:
We have a team of digital leaders who meet once a fortnight. These children take a lead on computing, ICT and e safety.
