Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we have been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. – Barack Obama
Welcome to our School Council page. We are looking forward to having a successful year, working hard on lots of different projects across school and representing the viewpoints of our classmates. Please check in regularly to get an update of what we have been up to!
School Council Consultation
The School Council looks to the school’s Mission Statement for its values.
The School Council is about:
- Learning to work together
- Learning about democracy
- Learning how to play a positive role in our Community
The School Council’s job is to involve everyone:
- Providing a link between children and adults working in school
- Finding out about things children want to change
- Coming up with ways to make things better
- Putting those ideas into action
- Seeing what works (evaluating).
School Council and School Improvement Partners
This year our School Council has representatives from FS1- Year 5 and are led by the School Improvement Partners (SIPs) who are in Year 6.
The SIPs will be responsible for chairing the meetings, producing letters and posters for the events that they are organising and collating and actioning children’s suggestions.
The School Council members will gather the opinions and ideas of their class and share them at the meetings, feedback meeting actions and support with any projects.
The key objective this year is to collect the views and ideas of all of the children, as we work together to make improvements across school. These will be shared with you here.
Last year, every class raised money through a sponsored event. We now have an enhanced EYFS outdoor area, inviting reading areas and new play equipment too. The School Council also decided to create a calm and welcoming place on a lunchtime in the outdoor classroom. A place where children could go to make friends, play board games and sit with their peers in a quiet space.
