Our School Council is a valued and essential part of our school. Classes from Nursery to Year 6 hold a class council which feeds into the whole school meeting, so all children have a representative voice in our school.
One representative from each class is elected by their peers at the start of the year and they attend weekly meetings. Older pupils also hold additional roles within the council such as chair, secretary and treasurer.
These meetings follow an agreed agenda, which is set by the Chair and Secretary. Mrs Whiteley helps to supervise these meetings.
The School Council will look at ways in which to spend any budget that they have and also ways in which to further improve the school. In the past they have made decisions upon playground spending, charities to support, how to fundraise for school improvements, organising take over day and planning whole school celebrations. They also always play a key role on the recruitment of new staff to the school taking an active role in the interview process.
