Our School Council plays an important part in the school.
The children meet as a Class Council once a fortnight to discuss any issues in our school and to make suggestions for further action. The elected School Council members, from Year 1 to Year 6, meet with either our Headteacher Mrs Allen or our Assistant Headteacher and Year 3/4 teacher Mrs White along with a parent who is on the ‘Friends’ committee. An agenda is set and discussions relate to what improvements could be made to the school. Our School Governors have also taken the opportunity to join these meetings.
Minutes are taken by the ‘Friends’ committee member, these are kept on computer file and paper versions are kept in a folder which is the responsibility of the deputy head girl or boy.
