School Council

Our school council is a group of elected children from years 2 - 6, who work together to represent the views of all our children in our school. In doing so we hope to improve the school so that it meets the needs, and fulfils the potential, of all our children who attend.

Some of the aims for this year and the future ahead include:

  • Working towards the Anti-Bullying Mark
  • Working towards achieving the silver Healthy Schools status
  • Organising fundraising events for chosen charities
  • To organise and participate in cross partnership sport events
  • To develop links with the wider community such as care homes
  • To introduce mindfulness using a whole school approach

Some of the work that the school council have carried out in previous years has included:

  • Setting up bird boxes outdoors to attract wildlife into the school grounds
  • Setting up a recycling system for the school
  • Carrying out Healthy lunch box surveys
  • Advertising for and organising whole school events including International Evening

Autumn 2017

This half term school council are going to be focusing on creating weekly healthy school challenges across the school including which class can drink the most water.

We will also be focusing upon anti-bullying this term. They will be looking at the school's anti-bullying policy to see how the language of the policy can be changed so that it can be better understood by children. The council hope that by doing this they can make it easier for children who are being bullied to know what help and support the school can give them. They also hope to create anti-bullying posters to go into all classrooms to highlight the problems of bullying and the school zero tolerance approach towards bullying. Council members will be talking with their classes about bullying and encouraging students to look at the anti-bullying policy themselves.
