School Council


The School council is one of the ways that children can become leaders at our school. An annual "Hustings" is held in September, to elect the chair and secretary. There is a class council every week, the members were voted on by their class; the School Council meets with Mr Banks, every third week. Suggestion boxes are in every class for children to write their ideas down and these are emptied and discussed at class councils, with ideas taken to the full meeting by the class chair and secretary.     

Members of the School Council this year are:

Year 1: Ethan and Lucy

Year 2: Mia and Jack

Year 3: Megan and Kieran

Year 4: Leah and Timothy

Year 5: Thomas and Imogen

Year 6:  Jake and Anya                                                                                                                                                                     

This year the School Council Chair is Jake (Y6) and the Secretary is Anya (Y6)

They were chosen as they received the most votes after the "Hustings" in assembly, where various Y6 children stood for election.

 What we achieved last year:

  • Year 2 Councillors, Maya and Ellis, managed to get a "Friendship bench" for the KS1 playground. It is under the "Buddy stop" and is already being well used!
  • After lots of discussion about fundraising-who we should raise money for and what events we should do as a school, we decided to let each class choose. The governors agreed to "loan" £30 to each class to use as a business. Each class choose what events they would run over the year and which charities they would raise money for.

Enterprise Project-2015-16

Coming soon: How much we raised for our chosen charities, after we paid our loan back!

  • Year 1: made and sold fruit kebabs at break times for a week, raising £       for          charity.
  • Year 2: ran an ice-cream stall at breaks, raising £      for the charity WWF-Endangered animals.
  • Year 3: Held a Lucky Dip after school, raising £    for The Air Ambulance.
  • Year 4: held a "Bake Off", raising £       for the RSPCA.
  • Year 5-Mrs Howell: ran a tombola, name the bears and guess the money in the jar, raising £    for Air Ambulance. 
  • Year 5/6- Miss Tomlinson: ran a "lollipop draw", balance 20p on a lemon and Guess what's in teh box, raising £      for the RSPCA and Macmillan Cancer.
