Experience, Excel and Enjoy

 

Welcome to our School Council page.

On this page we will keep you up to date with any important information from our meetings, any school improvements that we make and any charity events that we take part in.

 

What is a School Council?


A school council is group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

 

 

What does it do?

A school council does a number of things:

  • The school council meets - usually with a teacher present - to discuss and sort out problems. These may include school lunches, possible reward/sanction systems, or ideas for fundraising events.

     

  • Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning discos, writing newspaper articles, or meeting with catering staff.

 

 

Here are this year's school council pupils...

Some of the School Council Projects for this year.

This year the school council have already discussed;

  • Supporting charities.
  • Gathering pupils requests for new after school clubs.
  • Ideas to improve our football cage, and name it!
  • Feeding back to classes on creating a reading area in each classroom.
  • Introducing a new reward system for good behaviour at lunchtime.
  • Ideas for school days out.

We are well under way with some of these already so keep checking back to see how we are getting on!

 

One of our first tasks this year was to be judges!

Mrs Tasker set the school a competition where every class had to create a new reading area in their classrooms. They had to be as creative as possible and we got the job of looking at every one of them to judge which was the best.

All the areas were fantastic, but there could only be one winner.

And the winner was......Nursery! 

They created an amazing Gruffalo cave!  We'd like to say Congratulations to the Nursery class for such a brilliant reading area.

Take a look at the other great reading areas...

Our new and improved playground!

 

One of the projects that the School Council spoke about was improving the playground and as you can see, their wish has been granted!

We now have lots of new floor markings to play games on, astro turf in our football cage, some target boards AND a lovely 'theatre' to practice our singing and dancing on!

 

 

Our first Charity on our list this year was MacMillan. In September we held our annual coffee morning at school and raised £432.05! An absolutely fantastic amount of money! 

Mrs Platt and Mrs Parr would like to thank everyone who donated and helped us make our fundraising so successful!

 

 

One of our yearly charities is Children In Need. Every November we always show our support and this year, on Friday 13th November, we had an own clothes day with special classroom activities and children brought in 50p donations.
