Each year the children at Key Stage 1 and 2 elect children (one boy, one girl) per year group to represent them on the School Council.
The Council meets with Mrs Otter on a regular basis. This is a forum for children to pass on any concerns that they might have and made suggestions as to how the school could be improved.
The School Council raise money for charities and often represent the school at special occasions. They are a very valued group of our school community.
To date, the School Council have made a range of important decisions for the school by listening to the children's suggestions and concerns. Examples of this include:
Designing the adventure playground
Providing a bin on the top field
Organising and encouraging children to run their own clubs
Installing a 'Worry Box' so that children can submit their concerns confidentially
Organising a friendship room in response to the children's requests
Providing action plans on how to improve the learning environments in each classroom
