NURTURING EXCELLENCE

School Council

We are a Rights Respecting School

Children have the right to have a say in things that concern them and to have their views taken seriously. 

               Article 12

Our School Council for this year are:

 

                      Elections taking place next week- results to be announced shortly after. 

Our aim:

                       To make sure that every child has a say in what we do and how we can improve our school.


The School Council meet every two weeks so, if you have any ideas that you would like to share, remember to tell the School Council representative in your class or put your idea in the suggestion box.   

 

 After listening to the children in their class, the School Council has been instrumental in the changes our school has made at lunchtimes.  

 

To enable them to get out of the hall earlier (and therefore have a longer playtime) they suggested that we: 

  • have two people serving food instead of one 

To improve lunchtimes, the children suggested that we:

  • have the children setting the tables and clearing so it is more closely aligned to what they would do at home
  • have a teacher eating with the children every day. We thought this was a great idea. Mrs White eats her lunch with the children on Monday and Tuesday, Miss Nash on Wednesday, Mrs Sutton on Thursday and Miss Foote on Friday.

 

The School Council also helped to talk to the children about what they would like to see in the outside area at school.

As a result of the work of the school council, we were able to understand what the children would like to play with outside and how to improve lunch times and break times. The result is a gorgeous new outside area including a new trim trail, swings, a Forest School area, construction activities, a running track, water play and new football goals.

Well done to the school council for moving this project along and thank you to all the children for helping to design our outside area.

We all love it!
