2020-2021 - The Team
Our School Council is representative of all the year groups in our School. The children usually vote for a boy and a girl in their year group who will speak for them. They consider aptitudes such as willingness to take responsibility, bravery to speak up in front of others, and enthusiasm to become a leader to work with the staff to make our school a better place.
Meetings have an agenda and are chaired by the Year 6 pupils. The debates are lively and the ‘Chair’ ensures everyone has a chance for their views to be heard. Each child has an opportunity and a responsibility to bring to the meeting any matters that other children in the rest of school are concerned about or wish to bring to the attention of the Council. A senior member of staff acts as secretary and produces minutes that are distributed to the school community after the meeting.
We are immensely proud of the maturity and commitment our School Council members show. They have led a wide variety of endeavours such as co-ordinating improvements to playground behaviour expectations, been prepared to ‘get their hands dirty’ and clean out cupboards and organise storage for playground toys, and above all represented all the children both in and out of school with pride and accomplishment.
