Each class from Y1 – Y6 has a School Council representative who has been chosen by their peers and teachers to be the pupil voice of the school. They can be identified by their School Council badges, which they wear proudly, so that other children can approach them for help or with ideas about how to make the school a better place in which to learn and grow.
The School Council meets regularly to discuss arising issues and to work on projects, including fundraising and charity work. Over the course of the year, the School Council aims to have a positive impact both in school and on a wider scale, extending to the local community, and even national and international initiatives.
Here are our projects for the 2018/19 school year:
