School Council


Welcome to our school council page!

Our school council is made up of 29 children; each class has voted for the boy and girl that they feel will represent their views in the best way possible at our council meetings. There is also a single representative from our resource base, the Owlery.

Councillors serve on the council for a full academic year; at the start of the next year, new councillors are voted in.

Our school council is chaired by a member of staff and 2 children act as secretaries. Their responsibilities are to take minutes of the meetings and to ensure that these are updated on the council noticeboard so that all children are able to view them.

In our latest meeting, the council brought the results of class discussions around the school dinner menus, sharing likes and dislikes and putting forward suggestions for new meals to go on updated menus. The council were very enthusiastic and brought lots of excellent ideas, which were shared with Mrs Calnun-Pratt (unfortunately, the catering manager was unable to attend). The resulting changes to the menus have been put into place after the half term holiday and they have been received very enthusiastically by the whole school! Well done, everyone!

Future meetings will focus upon ideas to further improve Ivy Bank, as well as discussions on fundraising ideas.
