School Council

The school council consists of 8 school council members who represent Years 1 and 2 and Mrs Stokes 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 two weeks and discuss the topic of focus.  In past years the School Council has supported Children in Need, Sports relief and our Anti-bullying weeks. They helped guide the school into looking after their playground and the toilets more responsibly.


The School Council has a mission statement which is displayed on the relevant 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.
