Our School Council is elected in the Autumn Term, through in-class elections, each year.
At our first meeting we agree a mission statement and our priorities for the year. Our mission statement, action plan, meeting minutes and any upcoming projects are displayed in the hall on our School Council Notice Board.
On the board you will also find our elected officials, their roles and their photos. Each year we elect a Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer, all of whom have specific roles to fulfil at meetings and between them.
Class representatives from Kingfishers, Badgers, Owls and Otters hold regular Class Councils and conduct playground surveys as agreed by the Council, to ensure all pupils have a voice.
School Council takes its responsibilities to our school, community and the world very seriously and holds regular fundraisers in the name of the charities we elect to support as well as working to improve school life.
We are part of the SCONE network and our representatives attend regular meetings with other School Councillors from the North East. In 2016 we were fortunate enough to send two of our Councillors to London on a visit to the Houses of Parliament.
Previous School Council Events:

Get ready with your pennies because Fair Trade Fortnight is almost upon us and that can only mean one thing...the return of the tuck shop! Chocolate tastes even better when you know the producers are getting a fair price for it.

A request has been made to School Council for funding for IT enrichment- the request will be discussed at the next meeting.
