- School Council
Our School Council has now been hard at work for the first half term of the year. The first formal half termly meeting, has taken place and informal meetings at lunchtime have also happened to follow up on agreed actions.
They have already shown what a hard working team they are! At the request of children in the school, they have met and spoken in detail to Mrs Codd about some refurbishments to the toilets which she will action.
They have also re-instated the play equipment at lunchtime and are looking at ways of improving playtimes further.
The children were keen to make sure the thoughts and wishes of all children across the whole school were sought and therefore agreed to organise suggestion boxes for each class. The school council have explained the procedure to all children in all classes.
The school council have gathered the thoughts of the other children in their class regarding fundraising and it is thought the first event the school will fundraise for, will be Children in Need. More information and arrangements about this soon!

Each new school year there is an election campaign in September. If you would like to be nominated for school council you need to make a poster explaining why you’re the right person for the job. Each class are reminded of the roles and responsibilities of the representatives and the skills needed for the role.
Every child who wishes to be considered for the role then gives a small presentation to the class. This enables the class to have an informed choice about who they would like to vote for. At the end of September an election takes place by secret ballot where the epresentatives across KS2 are elected.
Don’t worry if you don’t get nominated this time. You are still an important voice in the school. The School Council are representatives of your class but they speak for everyone, not just themselves. They need to share all ideas and concerns.
We always like to keep those people who are really keen as reserves so that they can take part in some activities too.
Tell your class representative your idea or concern or put a note in the School Council suggestion box in your classroom.
Your class representative collates all the ideas and issues at the workshops and decides which issues should be put on the agenda for discussion at the next school council meeting.
Informal workshops take place every Friday at lunchtime with Mrs Day, our link teacher. Formal School Council meetings take place once a half term.
