School Council

Each site has its own school council.

At the Infant Site, two representatives from each class in Key Stage 1 are elected annually to form the school council and children from EYFS join us in term 6. The children who believe they would make super school councillors create a poster which is displayed in school and then are asked to explain why they would make  an effective school councillor. This is followed by a vote in class to elect two representatives. The school council meets at least twice a term to discuss the latest areas for improvement.

At the Junior Site, the school council is elected by the pupils annually and we have two representatives from each class. The council meets with Mr Selby (school council leader) every other Thursday to discuss the focus for the term and what we will do to help improvements for all.  The school council was recently responsibly for the decision to purchase new seating and recycling bins for the playground

During the year, the school councils from both sites will meet to work on a joint project.  This year the junior site school council will be meeting with other school councils from two local schools to discuss wider issues effecting the community.
