School Council

“Without a School Council, teachers wouldn’t know how we feel and think” Emma, Year 6

“We feel we can make a difference” Poppy, Year 3

 

Our school council is a democratically elected group of pupils from our classes in Key Stage One and Two.  Each Councillor is elected at the beginning of the year by their peers.

The role of the councillor is to work collectively with both peers and adults to make the school the best possible place to learn.  Our meetings provide an opportunity for the children to talk about life in the school and discuss ways we could enhance school life further. Amongst other things, we

  • organise charity events,
  • carry out pupil questionnaires,
  • work on joint projects with the Eco-Committee,
  • make suggestions for school improvements.

We have had a busy start to the 2019/2020 academic year. Thirteen councillors from years 1 – 6 have been selected. They are a very proactive and enthusiastic group!

Our School Council meet every Wednesday lunchtime with Mrs Best. In these meetings we discuss different ways to improve and raise money for our school. Following which we communicate our activities to our own classes.

Currently our School Council are involved in discussing and making suggestions to improve wet play times across the school.
