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 discussed sports and activities available at breaktimes; they have been tasked with finding out from their classes what the most popular sports and activities currently on offer are, what alternatives they would like to see made available and what the viewpoints on football being available are. Results of this survey will be available soon!

The councillors have also discussed the next project and have decided to have the whole school involved in brightening up the buildings and grounds with planters and pots of flowers, with each child taking home a seed to grow and return to school. They will be writing to local gardening businesses for support in this project.
