School council meet every Wednesday lunchtime with an agenda created by the school's leadership team, teachers and the pupils themselves. Every class has two school council representatives to fulfil their duties.
School council discussed and chose the following charities to support this academic year:
Family Support Work - local
Step - National
Unicef – International
Visual representation for our vision
School council reviewed our school vision statement that features in every classroom. They are working on what the vision statement means to our pupils and involving their classes in exploring this further.
World of Work Day
The school council are keen to explore the world of work as they feel that this has helped them think about what they want to do when they are older and moving on to the next step on their journey. They met and came up with suggestions of vets, veterinary nurse, palaeontologist, astronaut, scientist, mechanic, pilot, baker and inventor to name a few. The school council will send letters about the event now and see who will come and support this. The school council are then to organise the day for the rest of the school.
The school council are keen to organise a book swap as reading is at the heart of what we do. They have taken the idea to their classes and we will see their next steps.
The School Council ran a cake sale and raised over £168.00 for Family Support Work.
The school council have been putting together how they see the school's vision.
