The School Council is set up at the beginning of each school year. Children who wish to be part of the School Council complete an Application Form. Members of staff look at these, make a ‘short list’ and carry out interviews prior to appointment. We believe that children’s opinions should be heard and taken seriously. The School Council is the ‘voice of the children’. All children’s ideas and opinions are brought to the meetings.
The meetings are led by Year 6 children with a representative from each class. The older School Council members interview candidates seeking appointment to the school, most recently our School Business Manager and the Nursery and Y3 class teachers. The Year 6 children are all involved in providing lunch time clubs for the younger children. In the last few years, the School Councils have raised money for our Bicycle Shed and Trim Trail.
Breaking News: We also have a head boy and head girl in our school because our Year 6 children are so responsible.
