School Council

 

School Council

The school council is a group of pupils elected by their fellow pupils to represent their opinions and raise issues with the headteacher and governors in the school.

The school council also take forward projects on behalf of the pupils and are sometimes involved in interviewing staff as part of the recruitment process.

The school council:

  •  - Represent all pupils
  •  - Include two pupils from each class;
  •  - Take time to listen to all pupils and communicate their views at meetings;
  •  - Feed back to pupils about what happened about their views;

2018-2019 -Manifestoes have been delivered, votes have been cast and counted and our new school council members are as follows-

Y1 – Maisie & Luis

Y 2 – Alfie & Jess

Y3 – Logan & Bella

Y3/4 – Aidan & Ruby

Y4/5 – Jamal & Meg

Y5/6 – Harrison and Molly/Sophie

2017-2018 -Our 2018 school council were keen to build on the success of the previous year. They helped to continue the school improvements.

  • The council helped to set up a peer counciling service called playground pals- this is a daily lunchtime support network run by the Year 6 peer councilors for the benefit of the children.
  • The council raised money to enable the school to purchase a defibrillator machine. This took considerable effort and is something the children are rightly proud of. The machine will be placed in the school entrance and will be available for the local community during school hours.
  • Members of the school council were also involved in our OFSTED inspection and were praised by the inceptor on their knowledge of the school and their pride and impact in what the school was achieving.

2016-2017 - Our 2017 school council were our first school council and they all did a fabulous job supporting children and adults in making our school an even better place. Some of the ways in which they supported our school are:

  • They helped us to consult with the children about they believe we could further improve the school. The feedback was that the outdoor area needed to have more activities and needed to be updated, especially as one of our values is Pride. The school installed a Trim Trail and updated the playground markings after this feedback.
  • They helped in the creation of the Playground buddy scheme, this was after a meeting with the senior leaders where we talked about helping the staff at lunchtime. The playground buddy system is now in place and the children have also presented this scheme to a wider audience a the Cheshire East Children's safeguarding conference.
