Pupil voice in action
Classes elect a member from each year group, Years 1-6. Council meets most weeks during an Assembly time with an experienced Teaching Assistant to support its discussions. Council meetings are led by the elected chairperson and minutes are posted on the council notice board. School council makes decisions about playtime games and fundraises for new resources for playtimes. It works closely with our PTA, for example holding a coffee afternoon and sharing the proceeds.
Recent council campaigns have been around eco themes with children promoting energy saving in classes and working with local villagers in tree planting projects and other ways to reduce our carbon footprint.
Councillors wear their council badges with pride and contribute to school development by commenting on what is good about our school and what might develop further.
