Our School Council is made up of two representatives from each class in year one and year two. The children are voted for by their classmates in our school council elections.
We believe that children should be given opportunities to contribute to decisions and have a ‘voice’ in school and quite recently the School Council were involved in the interviews for our new Head teacher.
In 2015 – 2016 our School Council has discussed the behaviour policy and has given ideas for playground games and activities. they had a small budget to purchase additional playtime equipment.
In 2016 – 2017 the council members have discussed lunchtimes and have had some really good ideas for improving this time of the day. they have also talked about the school grounds and have planted flowers in the flower beds to make the school look nice and welcoming.
The 2017 – 2018 school council members talked to their classmates and came up with different fundraising ideas. These included film nights, gift sales and more discos. The events were very well supported and each class has had some money to buy wet play equipment. They have also looked at ways of improving the environment at lunchtimes in the hall e.g. music and a special table for birthday children so they can sit with their friends.
