Our School Council were chosen democratically.
Children from Year 1 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).

The School Council meet at 8.40 every Thursday 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.
Feeding back to the rest of school each week during collective worship on a Friday.
Each class has two representatives who attend the meeting and then share the information discussed back in their classes.
What have we done so far this year?
This hasn't been a 'normal' school year because of the Corona virus Pandemic but we haven't let this stop us from having a pupil voice. We still meet each Thursday morning ensuring we are socially distanced.
