School Council Minutes

Welcome to our School Council page.
We, in the School Council, are a group of children who have been elected by our classmates to represent them and put their views forward.
We meet each half term to discuss ideas and suggestions that have been put forward to make our school a better place.

School Council Sale 2017

Our first School Council meeting of the new year was held on Wednesday 12th October. This year we will be helping to explore how to make learning easier and more engaging for pupils. In our first meeting we split up into groups lead by Y6 councillors and listed all the things we could think of that helps us with our learning. This was used by the teachers to create a list of ideal learning behaviours. We will also be undertaking some surveys to find out more about what pupils think, such as the Children’s Society ‘Happiness Survey’.
