As part of the Innovating Redbridge initiative, a group of South Park Primary pupils have been involved this term in work with the Council to better understand how Redbridge can work more cohesively with communities in shaping neighbourhoods.
In spite of arriving in a blizzard, pupils spoke eloquently at a recent event at Lynton House to a packed audience of Redbridge Council staff and last night were in front of the External Scrutiny Panel at the Town Hall. Pupils described what they love about their neighbourhood as well as some of the less desirable aspects of where they live, offering some solutions to a wide range of issues. They have also produced a video outlining their perceptions of neighbourhood.
As a school, we look forward to participating in further events and opportunities to enable children to have a voice and shape the direction of Redbridge for their future.
