The School Council was established to provide pupils with a forum for discussion and participation in school decision making.  Members of the School Council are voted onto the Council and each class is represented from Reception to Year 6.

 

The School Council members meet monthly to discuss key issues with a teacher representative (Mrs Holcombe) and members feed back to their classes any decisions / information from the meetings.  Members are involved in policy reviews - behaviour and anti-bullying - and give a child's perspective on issues like playtimes, after school clubs, fundraising events and the purchase of new equipment.  Discussions are always lively as Council Members raise issues and concerns canvassed from their colleagues in class and the Council's contribution to school life is invaluable.

 

Council members are also developing their role as mentors for the younger children in school.
