We have an active School Council that is overseen by Miss Mudd.

Each term, new Class Councillors are chosen by the children.

Miss Morgan calls regular meetings to discuss ideas, events and issues relating to all of school life.

In the past, the School Council has been instrumental in making changes to all sorts of policy including behaviour, lunchtime, homework and Mega Day planning.


School Council Procedure

School Council Topics.

  • The staff as a whole decide on a theme for each term. This may be from previous meetings, current events, worry boxes or parent opinions.
  • School Councillors attend a brief meeting to find out the theme and what they need to discuss.
  • Each School Councillor then holds a meeting with their class where they discuss and debate the theme and make notes.
  • Notes are then brought by all reps to the School Council meeting and discussed further and decisions are made.
