Student Council

Our Activities

The school council is made up of two children from each class and they meet every half term (and sometimes a bit more!). Each member of the school council presents ideas and suggestions from their class and when they have decisions to be made it is always important that they seek the opinions of their class. We like to vote for things and this helps us make decisions for our school.

One of the many decisions the school council makes is related to playtime and lunchtime activities. We want everyone to be happy at playtime and we need to make sure everyone has the things they want to play with.  Last term, the PTFA kindly agreed to pay for lots of new resources to play with on the playground - thank you!

Another important job is to support fundraising events.  Last year, we raised money for Children in Need, NSPCC Number Day, Comic Relief and we sent Christmas Parcels for the Samaritan's Purse charity.  We are always looking for ways to make our school better and children's lives better.  Last term, we raised money for Children in Need, by decoration 150 biscuits with spots and selling them at playtime.  Everyone dressed in spotty clothes and brought donations.  Altogether we raised lots of money!

You can always read the minutes of our meetings on the display board in the Hall - or ask your class reps about the meetings.
