The object of our school council is to help children and young people to:
Pupils in the School Council propose and take forward initiatives and projects on behalf of their peers, and bring to staff attention problems or concerns that pupils across the school have. Class representatives are elected from Year 2 onwards, with the head boy and head girl automatically allowed to take part in council meetings. It is a councillors’ duty to take suggestions put forward in class discussion to fortnightly school council meetings, and then report back to their classes afterwards.
The School Council also considers which charities to support as a school, and initiates pupil fund-raising drives. In the past, we have supported the Buckets of Pennies for Buckets of Water project raising money for water schemes throughout Africa.
New equipment for the play decks is always a common suggestion put forward by the children and the School Council through questionnaires ascertain just what the children think is most needed. The Parent Teachers Association is always very helpful in providing funds for a variety of different play equipment for pupils of all ages
