School Council

Welcome to the School Council page

 

The School Council is composed of 2 representatives from each key stage 1 and 2 class.  Mrs Lovell attends the meetings and supports the School Council.

Every year elections are held at the beginning of October and the outgoing Council induct the new members into the practices and procedures of the School Council.

During September prospective candidates for the posts are nominated by their peers who then make posters to promote their skills, qualities and campaign policies to the rest of the school.  The candidates also make key note speeches in their classes.  Everyone in the school then has one vote for two councillors which they make on ballot papers on Election Day.  At the first official meeting a Chair, Vice Chair and a Secretary are elected.

The school council meets regularly, and considers many aspects of school life.  In the last 12 months they have been involved in the planting around school to improve  the environment, they have raised money to provide outdoor tables and seating for lunchtimes and also held a bun sale for charity (Children in Need). The school council also lead on  producing the child friendly version of the safeguarding policy - this year it was a poster displayed around school and sent home to parents.  They also regularly discuss school issues and factors affecting teaching and learning and share information through presentations in assemblies.
