'Because Pupil Voice Matters'
Pupil voice is highly regarded within school. One of the ways pupil's can express their ideas is via the School Council.
The School Council meet fortnightly to share and discuss views.
Each class across the age ranges, starting from Reception through to Year 6, have two main representatives that have been elected by their peers.
Each class also have 'Guest Councillors', who join our strong team each half term, to allow more children the opportunity to be involved.
The children are enthusiastic members and are keen to fulfil their role as a Councillor.
What do the children think about School Council?
Today was the first School Council meeting with our new class representatives and guests. We are all aware of the dates of each meeting throughout the year and have agreed to use communication books to record and communicate ideas in meetings.
We are currently electing for School Council roles internally - Chair, Vice-Chair and Treasurer.
If you have any inspiring ideas that you would like your representative to share within our School Council meetings, please don't hesitate to speak to your class representatives.
Thank you to all the children who bravely and confidently shared their manifestos with their peers. We are pleased to announce new Councillors have been elected and for the second year, we have many children joining us as guests for half a term.
Thank you to the previous Council for your commitment and hard work.
We have been busy choosing new rewards for the IIP personal targets, deciding a reward for the class who achieves the highest overall score in Mathletics, organising Children in Need and also inviting new candidates to write a manifesto for the new elections.
School Council meetings are well underway with the new Councillors. Mrs Storey has been enjoying attending our meetings and is thankful for the help she has received in where to locate a Worry Box in school. Councillors informed their classes about a competition to write a short poem or sentence to place on the front of the Worry Box. Why don't you come and read the winning poem?
We have elected our Chair and Vice-Chair and already everyone is full of ideas. With Red Nose Day just around the corner, Councillors have decided to raise money by involving everyone in a non-uniform day; dressing in red, white or black with an item of clothing to be worn backwards or inside out!
Well done School Council!
Mrs Earley thoroughly enjoyed attending our meeting on 5.5.16, saying 'their ideas were fantastic'. She will be using these to create the child friendly anti-bullying policy.
RED NOSE DAY
On Red Nose Day, we organised for the whole to take part in 'lOOK FUNNY FOR MONEY'. Everyone joined in the fun and dressed up in wierd and wonderful ways. Have you seen the photographs in the school's gallery?
Red Noses sold like hot cakes throughout the week and lots of buns were sold during and after school. A fabulous day was had by all. We cannot wait to organise another next year!
Thank you to everyone for their contributions, we raised an amazing £704!
The School Councillors and guest councillors are doing a fantastic job so far this year. They bring ideas from their peers to share at meetings and are always ready to voice their opinions and viewpoints in discussions about other important matters.
Already, they have been involved in making many important decisions across school. Some of these include:
