Welcome to our School Council. Elections were held on Monday 16th October.
What We Do
The School Council meet regularly to discuss and make decisions about our school. Please take a look at the Meeting Minutes for further information. If you have anything you would like them to raise please let them know. You can keep up-to-date with our Council Minutes and News on our website.
Why have a school council?
“School councils and class councils…can be a most excellent training ground in responsibility for future citizens [and are] an obvious sign that a school takes citizenship seriously.” Professor Bernard Crick, Chair of the Advisory Group on Citizenship
We work together so our school council is supported, set up well and trusted so that they can make a huge difference. We do this by providing a way for all children to have a say about what goes on in our school and we teach children that doing this effectively comes from collective action, team work, research, debate and compromise. We enable our young people to influence their communities and education and to learn how to do that in a democratic and constructive way.
29.03.17 – SNAG (School Nutrition Action Group) formed.
Children from the school council and selected other children formed a School Nutrition Action Group. They met with Janice and with representatives from Taylor Shaw to discuss school dinners. They came up with a number of ideas to help keep our school dinners nutritious and interesting.
21.03.17 – Guide Dogs Charity
We have been raising money over the past couple of years for the Guide Dogs Charity – we have to date raised £127.50, thank you to everyone who contributed and to the school council for arranging the collection for this charity.
