School Councils are democratically elected groups of students who represent their peers and enable pupils to become partners in their own education, making a positive contribution to the school environment and ethos.
Each September we start with a new set of School Council members. All the children in Key Stage 2 are asked to consider becoming their class representative. Those who wish to participate stand for election within their classes and each class votes for their representative on the council.
We have sixteen School Council members – two children from each Key Stage 2 class. Each of these children can be identified at school by their school council badge. They are: –
3G Mason Webster & Cian Wilson
3M Bowman Byrom & Keira Grindey
4B Alex Craven & Millie Liver
4F Jacob Kennedy & Ashleigh Evans
5B Alice Turton & Charles Hall
5M Kieron Mansfield & Leah McPhilemy
6F Wiktor Sowa & Mia Shepherd
6WF Jessica Titman & Amy Tyson
Members meet every Tuesday at lunch time with Mrs. Farish in 4F. Each member brings along their school council book in which they record ideas given to them from their peers, what we do in our meetings and plans for the future.
In 2014/15, the school council:
• put up a display to tell children who are in the school council;
• organised a poster of ideas from each junior class showing the children’s feelings about the proposal to extend our school;
• organised a ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ to raise money for Save the Children and written a letter to all the parents to explain this;
• taken visitors and prospective staff members on tours of the school;
• and begun to talk to the relevant members of staff at school to try to bring about some changes requested by children in Key Stage 2.
We are planning changes to the school in the new year. All the children are keen to improve our school grounds, equipment and the overall experience of the children throughout the school. We want to hear plenty of ideas from anyone in our school.
