School Councillors are chosen by their class members each year in September. School Councillors wear a purple polo shirt and yellow jumper so they are recognisable within school. Meetings are held regularly. Councillors bring ideas/concerns to the school council meetings where they are discussed with Mrs Whittingham and a decision is made whether these ideas/concerns need to be taken further and discussed with Mrs Lacey. It is important that as a school we listen to our pupil voice and the School Council is actively involved in deciding which charities we support during the year. They were also involved in the appointment of our current head teacher, Mrs Lacey.
Here is a list of our School Councillors this year:-
Year 1 – Matthew and Meadow
Year 2 – Lacey-Mae and Ajay
Year 3 – Emelie and Freddie
Year 4 – Harrison and Eloise
Year 5 – Frankie and Lacey
Year 6 – Elliott and Gracie
Head Boy and Head Girl – Issac and Isabelle
School Councillors from KS2, Head Boy and Head Girl also get the opportunity to visit the Houses of Parliament in London each year to find out how Government is run. They also meet up with our local MP who explains how they raise issues in our local community in the Houses of Parliament. Unfortunately, this has not been possible recently due to COVID restrictions.
