Our School Council were chosen democratically.
Children from Reception to Year 6 who wanted to be a member of the School Council presented a speech to their class. Each child in the class then voted democratically for the pupil they wanted to represent them and feedback their views and opinions in meetings (Article 12).
What have we done so far this year?
On Tuesday 2nd October Chloe from Investing in Children came in to talk to us about the things we have done in school. We talked about what school council do and about the opportunities we are given to have pupil voice. This included talking about being a RRSA Gold School and about suggestion and worry boxes.
Daft as a Brush
Each year School Council choose a charity to support for the whole school year. This year, after looking through lots of suggestions, we decided to support Daft as a Brush. Daft as a Brush are a local cancer care charity who transport patients who are undergoing radiotherapy and chemotherapy, for free. On Monday 24th September Ray, a volunteer for Daft as a brush and Catherine came into school to thank us for choosing Daft as a Brush and to tell us about the work they do. They left us feeling inspired to raise lots of money to support them.

The School Council meets every Tuesday morning with Mrs Schofield.
Our School Council represents the views of all of our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to have their voices heard and be part of the whole school community.
School Council aims:
To make sure our school is a safe and happy place for all of our children.
To make sure children have a place to voice their concerns.
To encourage all children in the school to suggest improvements.
To make sure any suggestions or concerns are listened to and acted upon.
We will do this by:
Talking to our class to gain ideas and suggestions.
Making sure everyone's opinions and views are valued.
Having regular meetings to share our ideas.
Each class has two representatives who attend the meeting and then share the information discussed back in their classes.
The charity we are supporting this year is Daft as a Brush.
We hope to raise £1000 over the next 2 years.
Look out for the exciting ways we will be raising money!
