School Council

The school council consists of 12 school council members that represent Years 1 and 2 and Mrs Goodman who leads the meetings.  Every class in Key Stage 1 have two school council members that hold their post for a term.  At the beginning of every term new school council members are selected through an election process.  


In order to be on the School Council children must deliver a short speech on what they would like to improve at the school. They are then voted for by the members of the class and two children are chosen to be the representatives.


The school council team meet up every Thursday lunchtime and discuss the topic of focus.  Last year the School Council introduced playground pals to make playtimes happier, raised money for Children in Need and for new playground equipment. They also organised the donation of presents at Christmas time and ran a stall at the summer fete.  


The School Council also wrote their mission statement which is displayed next to their board in the school. A copy of this can be found below.


Our School Council will include children who set a good example to follow and encourage the school values. They will listen to all pupils and help give them a voice to share opinions. The school Council will help to make everybody feel included, a part of our community and feel happy and safe.
