The School Council is an essential group who are elected to represent the views of all the pupils and to improve our school. It will discuss and sort out problems and is responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed.
It comprises of the Head teacher, a representative from the Domestic and Residential teams and 10 children. One child is elected, together with a Deputy from each of the ten classes.
They are elected annually and form the majority of the group with representatives voting for positions of Chairperson and Treasurer. The Council meets each half term and has its’ own budget as well as decision making powers.
Some examples of School Council recent successes include a change in morning breaks routine and staffing levels, the design of a new school logo and change to school uniform, use of water bottles during the school day and night, school sanctions. In addition we have fundraised for nominated Charities namely the Readathon £180, the British Heart Foundation £113 and more recently the MacMillan Cancer Relief & MacMillan Nurses £183.
Areas of discussion by the School Council for this forthcoming academic year are:
- What we need to improve
- How can we improve teaching/lessons?
- What can we do for others? ie fundraising, the community
- What do new children need to know? ie Children’s Prospectus
- What we did well as a School Council
