School Council

Each class has two school councillors who are elected every year.


A School Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. It is made up with representatives from each class who have been voted by other pupils.



Each school councillor needs the following qualities:


To behave like a role model

Have excellent listening skills

Respect the views of others

Be approchable

Be good at explaining things

Be able to work well with others

Enthusiasm and energy

Be reliable and willing to give up their own time


On Friday, our School Councillors joined our Family of Schools at Rother Valley for a team-building event.  The children were split in to teams with other school councillors and they spent the day working together to complete some challenging activities.  The children had lunch, followed by a treasure hunt in the afternoon.  Each school was awarded a prize that included a diary and some lovely stationary to use at future meetings.  


Our School Councillors have been working with Miss Lee to re-introduce an opportunity for children to play football at break-time.  The have produced a timetable so everyone gets a fair chance.  On Monday’s, girls from any year group can play.  Tuesday to Friday has been allocated to Y3-Y6 boys.  So far, it is going really well and everyone is enjoying playing.  If the playtime trial continues to be a success the School Council will look at introducing football at lunchtimes.   


Today we discussed what we have planned to do to support Children In Need.  


We have asked everyone to wear something spotty or wear their pajamas to school and pay £1.00


There will be a Children in Need raffle, tickets will cost 20p


In the afternoon we will be Spotifying our classroom doors! Children will pay 20p to decorate a spot.  Spots will be judged by the School Council and our winners will get 100 Golden Tokens plus a treat of their choice, may be an extra playtime or a DVD afternoon.


Lastly, we discussed what we would say during assembly on Thursday when we will present our ideas to the rest of the school.
