Welcome to the School Council page
The School Council is composed of 2 representatives from Year 1 to Year 6 and Mrs Cartwright, one of our members of staff, attends meetings.
Every year elections are held at the end of September and the outgoing Council induct the new members into the practices and procedures of the School Council.
During September, prospective candidates for the posts are nominated by their peers, who then make posters to promote their skills, qualities and campaign policies to the rest of the school. The candidates also make key-note speeches in their classes. Everyone in the school then has one vote for two councillors, which they make on ballot papers on Election Day. At the first official meeting a Chair, Vice Chair and a Secretary are elected.
The school council meets once a week, and considers many aspects of school life. In the last 12 months they have been involved in writing and sharing an E-Safety poster and organising a leaflet campaign in the neighbourhood to inform local residents about progress with leaking water on the field ajoining school as well as fund raising events such as a school disco. They also regularly discuss school issues and factors affecting teaching and learning and share information through presentations in assemblies.
