Empowering Children to Improve our Environment

The school council is made up of 2 children from Years 1 - 6. Children who would like to be a council representative put themselves forward and then the other children in the class vote for them. 

School council members are pupils who are confident enough to be the 'voice of their class'! They meet once a term and their main aim is to organise fundraising events for the school as well as for charities and other good causes. Previous accomplishments have included their involvement playground improvements, support in promoting British Values in our school community and Child in Need fundraising. 
To be a good school councillor you need to be:
  • A good listener
  • A clear speaker
  • Trustworthy
  • Helpful
  • Reliable
  • Honest
  • Able to work in a team
  • Able to share good ideas

Term 1

This term, the school council have been sharing the views of their classes with different subject leaders. They have been instrumental in teachers receiving feedback on how children feel about their learning, how they access lessons and talking about what could be improved in the future. All subject leaders even have 'evaluating my subject with the school council' on their action plans!

Term 2

The school council have worked hard to organise the events for this year's 'Children in Need'. They worked hard to plan the event as well as produce posters to promote the day. On the day, they also had to work hard to collect the children's donations to enter the school raffle. During the morning, they also invited parents into the school grounds to create our 'loose change Pudsey'.

Term 3:

This term, the children will be looking at how to improve the Year 5 and 6 cloakroom, asking their peers to help them choose some subject-specific wall art to replace the mural which has been in the cloakroom for many years.

Term 5 UPDATE

The improvements to the Year 4, 5 and 6 cloakrooms have begun with the installation of new lockers... 

Term 5

This term, the school council have been meeting with different subject leaders to share their views on the teaching and learning of different subjects.
