Our school council is made up of democratically elected representatives from each class.
Each class has two representatives who meet regularly with Mrs Storer to discuss ways of improving the school and any events or charity fundraisers the pupils have in mind. It is an elected body and the representatives are given a genuine stake in decision making at our school.
When planning new whole school developments, the school council are consulted – their ideas, views and opinions are sought. The children’s views and their concerns are always taken very seriously. This body also fundraises for either charities selected by the group or to improve the areas of the school that they would like to focus upon. This links to our British values.
The children on the School Council meet with members of the PTFA to discuss and share ideas for fundraising, help to promote school events and gain information from their classes on how they would like this money to be spent. This collaboration between the PTFA and School Council means that the children’s thoughts and ideas are integral to the PTFA when supporting our school.
