Mrs Davy convenes the School Council and before Christmas, she asked all pupils to consider whether they wanted to be part of our School Council. Three boys and three girls were nominated from each class. They were given time to campaign and an election was held.
The Council is made up of two children from each class from Year 1 to Year 6. The job of a class representative is to inform the School Council of any ideas, thoughts or comments that learners have which would help improve the school. Their first job was to ask their class to complete a questionnaire about school. This will be used as a starting point for following meetings. Representatives also feed back to their class about changes to the school.
They have regular meetings and during Spring Term an executive Committee will be formed, made up of Chair Person, Vice Chair Person, Secretary and Treasure. To make the school council more effective other committees will also be formed. These include: interview and behaviour committee, health and safety committee, safeguarding, attendance and learning walk committee, health, lifestyle and school dinner committee and a fundraising committee.
All of the minutes from meetings, photographs and other relevant information will be uploaded onto the school BLOG so please have a look.
