Our School Council 2022
The School Council is here to represent you at meetings so that EVERYONE can have their voice heard.
How can I have my say?
1. Put a message in the suggestion box in the Practial Area.
2. Come and talk to us - your School Council reps! We are happy to listen to your ideas whenever they might occur!
3. Tell us what you think after feedback. Do you agree with everything decided? Can you think of anything you want discussed at the next meeting?
What kind of suggestions are useful?
We REALLY want to make a difference to everyday life in school, not just think about special events days (although they are good fun, too)and it is not always about raising money either! Try to think of your usual routine at school and where things might be improved or changed for the better.
Ideas to do with.........
Playtime activities or routines
Things you would like in school
Ways to raise money for school or charities
Have an input into choosing our school lunch menu
These are just a few thoughts. Whatever you are thinking about that could help school carry on improving, let us know!
Remember we're here to listen!
What's new this year?
We will use the Amnesty International resource - 'Learning about human rights in the Primary School' to provide children with their own understanding of human rights and the values and attitudes to underpin them.

During the meeting we decided to check the outdoor area to see if there were any improvements we could make or see if there was a possibility of developments that could be made in the future. Here are some of the things we discussed:

In today's school council meeting, we got to work tidying the leaves from the playground. The children did a fantastic job... it looks loads better aready. Our next priority, which will take place during the next meeting will be filling the dig pits ready for planting seeds. Great work everyone in the school council!
Wednesday 2nd February 2022
After Mr Shepherd and Mr Fowles had discovered the planters needed some much needed TLC, we decided that we would tidy the tyres from various areas of the playground. We have decided that the best use for these tyres would be to recycle them by donating them to a local farmer. The whole School Council team contributed superbly... there are going to be some tired limbs this evening!
Wednesday 23rd March 2022
In today's meeting we discussed the positive impact our School Council has had on our school. We then focused on what we would like to invest in moving forwards. We discussed the importance of recycling and the possibility of investing in paper and card recycling bins for each classroom. Finally, we spoke about making adjustments to break and lunchtime rotas, so each class would have better access to the climbing frame and football on the lower playground.
