The children in our school are the most important people! As such, they have lots of opportunities to share their thoughts on school issues – both formally and informally! Mrs. Bild’s door is always open for both children and adults!
The main aim of the School Council is to help to make our school a better place for the children and to give us an opportunity to have their opinions and ideas heard. Each class from Year One upwards has two representatives who are elected every year.
At the first meeting of the year the important roles and jobs are selected and a new manifesto is written. Potential projects are discussed and plans to move forward are made. Meetings will be held fortnightly, with the HoS or DHoS attending termly.
The head boy and girl (year 6 representatives) meet with the HoS or DHoS half termly to discuss the projects and ideas the school council are working on.
The class representatives tell the children in their classes what has been discussed at each meeting and the children can ask the representatives to take forward their ideas to the next meeting.
Everybody gets a fair say in the meeting and nobody gets left out.
The anti-bullying squad has the aim of ensuring that all children feel safe and happy in school. This includes inside the school the building and while on the playground. They are play leaders and friendship ambassadors. The squad has two representatives from all years 1 – 6.
The school follow the All Together programme and are working to become recognised as an ‘All Together’ school.
At the first meeting of the year the important roles and jobs are selected. Potential projects are discussed and plans to move forward are made. Meetings will be held fortnightly, with the HoS or DHoS attending termly.
