School Council

Each year the children in Key Stage one vote for two children in their class to represent them on the school council. Being a school councillor is a very responsible position as they have to;

  • Attend regular meetings,
  • Make suggestions how the school can be improved,
  • Take on tasks and roles to get things done,
  • Talk to their classes and sometimes to the whole school during assemblies,
  • Share their ideas with the School council and their classes.

In 2016/17 our school council chose to support Nelson’s Journey. Their choice was based on knowledge of some families having bereavements which have affected their friends. The charity supports children and young people to talk about their feelings and memories of the person who has died, and ways in which to cope and remember them.

The children have collected money at the Christmas Productions and have organised a colouring competition. The final total is in excess of £700, so a big thank you to everyone who supported this charity. Next academic year the school council will be researching other charities and will again have a vote to determine their charity in 2017/18.
