School Council

Awesome April

To promote wellbeing, our School Council surveyed the pupils to find out what activities they would like to do in 'Awesome April'. Last year, some of the activities included a loungewear non-uniform day, teacher and pupil switch, movie afternoon and no pen day. Our School Council have been counting votes and will soon share the list of winning ideas for this year! Watch this space for updates!

World Book Day Competition 2024!

Our newly elected School Council were given their first important task: to judge the Story in a Jar competition for World Book Day. Our School Council members had a very difficult decision, as there were over 150 entries! Eventually, they chose 5 winners, who received a £5 voucher to spend at the book fair, and runners up, who received certificates of commendation.

The New School Council is Elected!

Each year, pupils can apply to be a member of the School Council. A term runs for one year, from the Spring term to the following Spring. Our School Council nominees presented their mission statements to their classmates and those shortlisted then wrote letters of application. The current School Council then are tasked with choosing the next group. They read the applications and thought carefully about how each nominee would represent their peers and the school. Mrs Broad then announced the new School Council in a special assembly.

Fun for the Playgrounds

After listening to their classmates, our School Council chose an array of ropes, balls, balance toys and hoops amongst other things for children to play with in the playground. The School Council also held a special assembly, sharing what they had learned from Mrs Annetts, who visited Sweden on an Erasmus visit. In the Swedish school, pupils were given a special token that they could use to borrow an item from the games shed. When finished, they would return the item and get their token back. This is a great way to take responsibility for and look after our equipment.

Book Sale

Our School Council decided to hold a second hand book sale to raise money for new playground equipment. Having checked the quality of the books and organised in to age categories, children across the school were invited to come to the book sale. The event was a huge success, with over £700 raised! The School Council will be seeking their classmates input before buying some new toys and equipment to use in our playgrounds.
