The School Council Members
At the start of the school year each class choose their school council representatives. The role of the school council representative is to represent their class members at school council meetings.
Achievements so far this year 2021-22:
School Council were outside school reminding the adults to park safely around our school. The children made their own posters explaining what adults should and shouldn’t do when parking. They spent a long time making their posters bright and eye-catching so lots of people would see them. They were very excited to showing their posters and the School Council got lots of great feedback from the adults.
On Thursday 10th March, School Council attended a governor’s meeting in the evening. They presented to the governors about pupil mental health and well-being. They demonstrated some strategies, such as mountain breathing, that we use in the school to help make us calm. They were also able to answer the questions from the governors.
The School Council met with our Local MP, Oliver Dowden. Mr Dowden spoke to the School Council about how their ideas matter in the school and how they are helping others within the school and the wider community by being part of the school council. The School Council also had a chance to ask him about what is like being an MP and was he part of his School Council when he was at school.
The School Council helped to update the playground equipment which has led to improved playtimes and lunchtimes.
To mark Remembrance Day, School Council helped raise money by selling poppies before and after school each day.
For Children In Need, School Council came up with the idea of asking every child to dress up in something yellow or spotty to help raise money for the charity. The event was a great success.
School Council led an assembly focusing on road safety. Each member created their own 'Be Bright Be Seen' poster to reminded children and adults that they should wear something bright when walking in the dark so they can be seen. They also spoke about the importance of holding hands when crossing the road and waiting until it is safe to cross before doing so.
