The School Council is comprised of a representative from each of our 12 classes. Each class usually elects their School Council member in the Autumn term, through a process of self-nomination, supporting presentation and secret ballot.
The School Council meet on a weekly basis to discuss issues which have been highlighted as important by the student body. Key points from the discussions are fed back to the classes, and their input is requested to aid the School Council in reaching solutions to problems and also to identify which areas need addressing next.
In our recent history the School Council has been responsible for the development of the school’s outdoor learning areas, the establishment of a monthly school newspaper and organising the first disco the school had seen in a number of years!
At present we are considering which charities we would like to support for the coming year, as well as gathering and assessing possible solutions for how to make our playground a more enjoyable place to be.
The school council have spent their budget of £50 per class and rejuvenated the wet play boxes with goodies that have got the children hoping for rain!
Toilet painting has begun and more is imminent - we’re just holding a vote to finalize colour choices!
There will be a festive Christmas jumper day on the last day of term, Friday 18th December. Donations of £1 per child will help us to raise money for the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
Following a request from one of our Year 6s, the school council are currently planning a disco for the spring term to raise funds so that we can have a defibrillator on site.
