SCHOOL COUNCIL 2021-2022

Our School Council is a group of elected pupils from Year 4-7, who have been chosen to represent the views and opinions of the pupils in their class.  School Council representatives come together to discuss ways in which the school can improve, taking into consideration the pupil voice.  School Council members also link with the younger classes in our school, bringing on board their ideas and thoughts. 

The School Council are given the opportunity to talk with the people who can make changes happen and decide on the most effective ways to implement these changes.  School Council members share with heir class news  and information, discuss new initiatives and feedback to their class on what has been achieved.  Our School Council representatives also aim to participate in fundraising events. 

The School Council this year are involved in fundraising for new playground equipment, something that came out of investigating how to improve pupil wellbeing following remote teaching and learning in the previous two years.  They are also involved in an initiative to improve pupil attendance throughout the school.  We hope this year’s School Council really enjoy being their class representatives, bringing Pupil Voice together, so we can share interests and ideas from all of the children in our school!

So look out for new playground equipment coming!
