School Council 2016-17

Welcome to our School Council web page where we will keep you up to date with our news and events!

If you have an idea just pop it on a Post-It note on your class Wish Fish and your School Council members will make it their aim to put it forward at the next meeting!

We have a very proactive School Council who meet regularly with Miss Maggs and the Head Teacher to discuss important school issues. Each class has two representatives on the School Council (one boy and one girl) who are elected by their peers in September.

The School Council improves communication between pupils and staff.

They are the voice of the pupils in the running of the school, and take their responsibility very seriously. Their term of office runs for one year, before another two children are elected.

The aims of the School Council are to promote a shared sense of ownership and responsibility for the school and to encourage pupils to take an active role in school life. The School Council improves communication between pupils and staff.

There are lots of positive outcomes to having a School Council, including positive attitudes to learning, improved relationships, raised self-esteem and improved self-confidence.The School Council will meet every other Monday throughout the year and will be involved in projects of their own design. The council members will act as a voice for their classmates and, through their experiences, will learn a great deal about democracy and teamwork.

Meet the school council members for 2016-17 from Reception to Class 10.

The School Council worked very hard to promote and run their fundraising day! They ran lots of exciting activities throughout Friday 18th November 2016.

 

The School Council will be counting how much money we have raised on Monday 21st November 2016. We are hoping to beat our target from last year of £302.70
