School Council

The School Council is the pupil voice within our school and each class (from Reception to Year 6) has 2 representatives on the school council. Becoming a School Council representative is an extremely important responsibility and the children elect their own representatives through a democratic election process. Come and look at our noticeboard in the main entrance of school if you don’t know who we are. We have included an area on the board for children to write down what they would like their School Council to do this year too!  

The School Council meets on a regular basis with Mrs Frisby (School Council Leader) or other members of staff to discuss important themes that are current in our school.  The School Council representatives are then asked to communicate important information to their classmates so the whole school is kept up-to-date.  Sometimes, they will also take part in the interview process for new members of staff or help show important visitors round.

Current Initiatives

  • Our School Council have decided to continue our work to become a 'plastic free school' with the 'Surfers against Sewage'
  • We have created some 'stay safe' posters ready for display in our play areas, reminding children to be 'Ready, respectful and safe' when playing.
  • Our School Council have decided to support 'Sal's Shoes' - a charity which collects donated, used shoes and distributes them to countries around the world, including the UK.
