School Council

Our school council is celebrating its 20th year. One child in each class from Year 2 upwards is  voted for by their class. The half termly meetings are chaired by a member of the senior leadership team. Council Members raise ideas on behalf of their peers to benefit the school and pupils in the school. The Council Members discuss each idea and decide whether it is a good one. If the idea is unanimously agreed, the chairperson makes the decision based on the budget. The children fundraise for their ideas through an annual sponsored spell and the self run and funded stationery shop.

Being a member of the school council teaches responsibility, respect and compromise. It encourages different Year bands to work together and helps children develop financial responsibility.

 ‘It involves the children in having ideas and making decisions about their school with help and advice from teachers when needed. Children have to think carefully about what makes a sensible idea. It gives us pride in our school because WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!’ - The School Council

 

The Healthy Eco School Council

At the beginning of each new school year, every class has a vote to decide who they would like to represent ‘their voice’ at the Healthy Eco School Council Meetings.  The council meet every half term to discuss ideas to make the school an even healthier and environmentally friendly place for everybody. The Healthy Eco School Strategy is linked closely to the Sustainable Schools agenda.
