The School Council is made up of representatives from each class from Years 1-6. Every year, two new children are elected by their peers to represent their class. The classes hold elections, with children sharing their testimonials before the class and then elect two pupils to represent them. A Chair and Vice Chair, who are the year 6 class representatives, lead the School Council. Class representatives take turns to record the minutes for each meeting. Mrs Gibbins is the teacher representative who helps to facilitate the meetings.
The School Council meets every three weeks to discuss school matters. The purpose of the council is to give all children a voice and help to improve our school. They discuss a range of issues such as the Behaviour Policy, providing ideas for a school reward scheme, organising fundraising events for their chosen charity and representing pupil views on a range of issues. Many of the issues raised come from the School Council suggestion box. The School Council has participated in key projects including the recruitment of our new Head and Deputy Head teachers and the building of the school library.

Our first meeting of the year was very busy. The children are excited to have been elected and have many ideas about which charity we could support this year and how we can raise money. This will be decided shortly after our next meeting.
The School Council have been approached by the Senior Management Team in school to investigate opinions on our current uniform, after results from a previous survey concluded that pupils did not feel smart in their school wear.
The School Council intend to seek the opinions on uniform from parents and carers shortly.
