Pupil Voice

Our School Councillors are elected by their class. It is a rigorous process, they have to speak to their class and put forward why they would be a good candidate.

The role of School Councillor is to further improve the school. They put forward the views of their class and meet with teachers and leaders of the school.

Minutes of the meetings are taken and a record is kept on the School Council board.

Raising Money for a Webcam for a Bird Box

Thank you for supporting the School Council with their fair. They are raising money to buy a webcam for a bird box and they managed to raise £144.35. They came up with the ideas for the stalls and they set them up and managed all the activities; with a little help from some friends, including Olli E’s brother who kindly let them borrow his pop up goal. I was very impressed with their maturity and business acumen, well done School Council.
