'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?
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:
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.
Class elections have taken place and the new councillors this year have been voted in by their peers!
A huge well done to everybody who wrote their manifesto and shared it with their class.
2014/15 School Councillors
A huge thank you and well done to the previous councillors for the commitment they showed to council meetings and for the super ideas and discussions we had.
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!
