School Council

What is School Council?

We value the opinions of our pupils and the School Council gives pupils a forum to share these opinions about school life.

A new school council is elected each year, with every class from Y2 to Y6 nominating representatives. These meet at least half termly, often monthly.

What we are doing?

April 2024

The School Council met with Chartwells to hold a School Nutrition Action Group (SNAG).  They did an amazing job of sharing pupil voice, identifying strengths of our school lunches as well as things they would like to see improved. The Chartwells manager was extremely impressed with how the children were able to hold a mature and balanced discussion.

 

Suggestions included: refreshed salad bar for children on a later sitting, hydration station brough back to the hall (water infused with fresh fruit),  separating the fruit/biscuit dessert so that the biscuit stays crisp. 

February 2024

The school currently has a school dog, stick insects and fish; they brought feedback from their peers with suggestions for other school pets. The children discussed the advantages and disadvatages of school pets.
