Our Pupil Advocates are working very hard to make our school a nicer place to be. We are helping people when they are upset and when they need someone to talk to. If you ever need to talk to someone but you don’t want to speak to an adult, you can come and talk to us!

Training to be an advocate
In training, we learnt the qualities to being a good advocate (for example: being trust-worthy and confident). We also learnt how we could be a good listener and communicate with others. Another thing we learnt was some games to play on the play-ground and for wet play. We learnt all of these tips to being a good advocate/buddie in our “Mission to Listen” booklet we got from Miss Duncan, our pupil advocate leader.
Different ways we help people
We help people by making them new friends or if there lonely we play a game with them. If two people are having a disagreement, we calm them down and find a resolution. We help people by sitting down with them on a bench and let them talk and we listen. We help people by finding their friends either for them to say sorry or because they can’t find them.
Why we like being a pupil advocate
Here are two opinions by two pupil advocates on why they like being a pupil advocate.
“I like being a pupil advocate because you feel happy after you’ve sorted a problem out I also like making people new friends because you feel they are going to be happy with their new friends,” -Libby Williams
“I like being a pupil advocate because I like looking after people and making sure they are okay. I also like being a pupil advocate because I feel like people count on me and trust me. Being an advocate is challenging but rewarding,”-Macey Hanlon
If you are not sure about something tell an advocate.
