School Council

Our School Council plays an important part in the school……

Elections for members usually takes place at the beginning of the school year. Each year group votes for one representative and badges are awarded to the successful candidates. This year, elections took place in the Spring Term 2021 once we returned to school and the following children were elected;

  • Lara Trevatt & Bella Heygate – Hedgehogs Class
  • Rowley Armstrong & Theo Roberts – Squirrels Class
  • Violet Galvin, Hermione Radcliffe, Noah Grover, Tobi Stumpenhusen & Fynley Whelan – Badgers Class

The children meet as a Council once a term to discuss any issues in our school and to make suggestions for further action.  The elected School Council members, from Foundation Stage to Year 6, meet with either our Headteacher Miss Crawford or one of our Senior Lead Teachers. After consulting with their respective class mates about issues for discussion, an agenda is set and the meeting is arranged.

Our Year 6 representatives are encouraged to Chair and Minute the meetings. Minutes are kept in a folder in the Staff room.
