Our School Council is made up of an elected child from Years 1 - 6. Elections take place in the first week of the school year and every child has a vote. The elected representatives hold the role for the school year.
Our School Councillors pass on the children's ideas and concerns to the school staff. They help to make decisions about things such as our behaviour code, school logo and what resources we need in school. They have helped to format our 3 Bs, choose items for our trim trail and playtime equipment.
School Councillors take their responsibilities very seriously. They often have the job of greeting visitors to the school and showing them around and have also helped during interviews for school staff, showing them the school and interviewing them.
Our School Council have chosen three charities to support over this academic year. During this term they are supporting the work of UNICEF, in the spring term SARA and in the summer term Cancer Research.
This term our School Council has helped to organise and host a Pop Up Festival to help raise the Emotional Literacy of the School, support wellbeing and raise money for the term's charity, UNICEF.
Now we are no longer in class bubbles, they have also led the reinstatement of our themed playground equipment. They have purchased new equipment and ensure that the correct equipment is out each day. The School Council hope this will promote cooperative play and encourage children to be more active during playtimes.
