The School's Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run.
The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made within school.
Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each Councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.
Members of the Council meet regularly with Mr Cole and take part in discussions about the school. They also feedback any relevant information to their class and to members of the Senior Leadership Team. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the Council. Our School Council representatives play and an active part in promoting positive change and they all have some fantastic ideas!
During the academic year of 2017-2018, the student council members helped to provide ideas on how to improve the KS1 outdoor area. This was transformed over the summer break: we are sure that you would agree that is looks absolutely fantastic.
During the last academic year (2018-2019), the student council representatives helped to design our brand new KS1 and KS2 libraries. The finishing products look amazing.
We cannot wait to think of some more amazing ideas!
The student council have been expressing the importance of anti-bullying week and explaining why we shouldn't bully one another and why we should always be friendly to others.
So, as a council, we decided that the best way to express this message would be through a video.
Over the past few days, the Year 6 student council members have been venturing around school, highlighting the importance of Remembrance Day and the message behind it.
The Year 6 student councillors have been collecting donations and raising money for the British Poppy Legion.
We would like to say a big 'Thank you!' for all those who have donated so far!
On Wednesday 16th October, Mr Cole and a very special guest (Councillor C. Nicholls) held a Student Council election ceremony to elect this years Student Council members.
Councillor C. Nicholls enlightened both KS1 and KS2 on British Values, the importance of being elected as a Student Councillor and ways we can all help others in our community.
During the ceremony, newly-elected pupils were awarded with a certificate and their yellow jumpers, which allows them to be identified quickly by other children, parents, staff member and visitors.
Our School Council members have been invited to attend a tour of the Town Hall in Grimsby so they can experience where local meetings take place and ask questions to local Councillors about how they represent the voices of people in our local area. Watch this space to find out more about the visit!
