The aims for 2015-16  are to continue to act as the learner voice on a whole range of issues that affect the daily lives of learners at Emrys. The aim is to devote more time to teaching and learning related topics during this year. The first half term saw a whole school debate on the issue of homework. Information gathered will be used to influence the future of homework setting and completion.

At Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan we have our own eCadetts groups.  This has 26 learners from across Year 8, 9 and 10.
eCadets – “Our vision is to help kids and parents to understand how to be safe online.”
The eCadet scheme is the 1st structured peer empowerment eSafety scheme which trains and supports a team of learners to be able to help classmates to stay safe online.
The scheme enables learners to log into the website and complete activities that will inform and empower them, over time, to act as a first contact to their peers if they have any minor concerns. Issues or questions regarding eSafety.
Aims for this year are simply:-
·         To learn about eSafety
·         To promote eSafety
·         To participate in Safer Internet Day

We also have the Eco Committee.  Below shows some of the priorities that they will be working on in this year.
