School Council

Our School Council meets several times each term. Two representatives, are elected by each class (Year 2 and above). All representatives serve for one school year.

The Council elects a Chair who is assisted by a member of staff. We discuss development ideas suggested by the school’s SLT (senior leadership team), or other members of the staff. The representatives are encouraged to bring suggestions from their classmates for improvements to the school, charities to support and ideas for fundraising activities. The representatives also carry out pupil voice surveys with their class.

As well as regular meetings, last year we carried out a litter pick around the village with the eco warriors at the school.

In line with the school Behaviour Policy, the School Council chooses 3 charities each term- one national, one international and one local to raise funds for.

For the Autumn term, 2017, the children have chosen to support:

Local- Keech Hospice Care

National- The MS Society (Multiple Sclerosis)

International- The Whale and Dolphin Conservation Trust
