Our School Council members include two representatives from each class, from Reception to Year 6, and Mrs Pollard – our headteacher. The children are elected by their classmates, and their role is to discuss views and opinions on a variety of issues.
The School Council meets regularly (about six times each term), and is frequently joined by one of our School Governors.
The aims of the School Council are:
- To promote children’s views about issues which affect the life of the school both in the present and in the future
- To help the people who make decisions in the school understand and respect children’s points of view
- To give children an opportunity to understand and participate in a democratic process
- To encourage children to understand rights and responsibilities in everyday life.
- To give children the opportunity to discuss learning and achievements
- To undertake projects that will improve the quality of the school, and the wider community.
Recent issues under discussion have included:
- Use of the School Grounds
- After School Clubs
- School and playground equipment
- School and community fundraising
