We are proud to have a very pro-active School Council. We have children who represent each year group from Reception on the School Council and they meet every month with Mrs Duckett. The School Council plan events across the school year, e.g. fundraising events, they also put requests to the headteacher for equipment that children would like to see at the school, particularly in the school playground.
In the past two years the School Council have:
Helped rewrite the Positive Behaviour Policy to include changes to how we use the traffic light system
Introduce a Brain Builder Award in Assembly to recognise extra effort when completing homework
Changed the Library Club day so that more children can attend
Helped Mrs Pearson spend £7500 of grant funding on music equipment including an outdoor stage and large-scale outdoor instruments
Been involved in choosing the names and illustrations for our School Values
Decided new names for the House Points teams
This year our School Council have:
Designed mood boards displaying lots of different ideas of what pupils would like to play with at break times- The School Council decided they would like a large Snakes and Ladders applying to our school playground floor.
Created wooden Father Christmas' during a lunch time craft club, that we then sold to help raise over £100, to put towards our outdoor ideas.
Helped raise over £300 for Red Nose Day by coming to school dressed as Superhero's and selling Red Noses.
Raised money for a Ukraine Charity by opening up the School Hall on a Friday morning and selling Bacon and Vegetarian Sausage butties. It was also non-uniform day and pupils came to school wearing Blue and Yellow, to represent the Ukrainian Flag.
Supported Mrs Pearson with some questions and ideas to improve our school praise assembly
And finally spending £1800 on having our new Snakes and Ladders fitted, which looks so bright and colourful. Very good choice School Council!
We have a School Council display board near Fox Class showing the members of the Council. We also have a School Council board near Mrs Pearson's office which highlights our current projects.
