Each class in key stage 2 has a school council representative who has been elected 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 children from all age groups 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 by engaging in national and international initiatives.
Here are just a few of the things the children will be working on this year:
- A fruit sale – fundraising for school
- Designing new PE hoodies
- Selling poppies and stationery to raise money for the British Legion
- Playground improvements, including ideas for safe spaces
- Organising a clothes recycling scheme
- A community litter pick
Say hello to this year’s representatives…
