Our School Councils represent the views of all our pupils. They give children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
It is composed of representatives from all classes.
If you want to become a School Council member you have to present a manifesto to the rest of the class. This will tell the class why they should vote for you! After the voting is over there is one representative from each class, except year 6 where there are two representatives from each class.
School Council met the school cook and senior lunchtime supervisor
Miss Catton (school cook) and Mrs Rhodes (senior lunchtime supervisor) came to our school council meeting on 23rd March 2017.
Each class in school completed a whole class survey to find out what we all thought about our school lunches and our experiences in the hall at lunchtime.
Today we fed back the results to Miss Catton and Mrs Rhodes and we all discussed how we could improve lunches, which foods we most liked and disliked and how we could improve lunchtimes in the hall overall.
We look forward to quicker queue times, food menus in classrooms and more space to sit in both KS1 and KS2 halls. These are just a few things we can fix quickly.
Look out for more information coming about new menu choices and removal of food we really don't like.
Thank you Miss Catton and Mrs Rhodes for coming to visit us.

The School Council discuss matters brought up by members of each class. They also put forward ideas which they feel will improve the school. They vote for ideas which they feel should be carried forward. Sometimes ideas may be turned down by the Head teacher, for example if the school couldn't afford it, or if there were too many non uniform days or bun sales!!!
