Our school council is usually made up of 2 pupils from each year group giving a total of 14 pupils, though this year Covid restrictions mean we have had to limit it to KS2. The school council has an important role to play in school, giving the pupils a voice and ensuring they are involved in decision-making across the school. Previous councils have been responsible for introducing Pebbles, our pet tortoise, to the school, for getting our new cookery area built and for introducing some new clubs to our extra-curricular provision.
We look forward to seeing what this year's school councillors will do!
Last year we worked on the following projects which came from pupil suggestions:
1. Enrichment: survey the pupils to check whether the extra-curricular activities we provide are suitable and to get
suggestions for changes that might encourage more participation, especially in physical activities.
2. Curriculum: increase the number of times that Outdoor Learning is incorporated into our KS2 curriculum plans.
3. Playground: find a suitable location for a quiet area and find seating etc. to make it attractive to pupils.
4. Community: find a charity that supports children in another country that will give us a positive focus for fund-raising as
well as an opportunity to build relationships with a different community.
Owing to Covid-19, not all projects were completed.
