The School Council
The School Council is a group of children, with two representatives from each class, who meet every fortnight to discuss matters which are important to our pupils. We also have House circle times on the last Monday of the month, when the whole school gets the opportunity to discuss matters which are important to them.
Each class, during their weekly class circle times, talk about key school issues which are then recorded by their representatives. The reps bring these notes to meetings and we talk about ways in which we can improve the school. Representatives feed back to their classes by reading the minutes from the meeting. When decisions need to be made, children are asked to vote for their preferred choice. Our School Council therefore acts like a democracy, similar to the society we live in.
Occasionally, the School Council raises money for charity. Check back here again to find out how much money we have raised so far this year and to learn where the money has gone. The reps are also involved in the interview process for new staff, observe lessons and represent the school at key events.
