School Council

Our School Council representatives are voted in by their classes (Reception-Y6). They have responsibilities in school including; presenting ideas and requesting funding from the governing body and friends of the school, attending school to school debates, working on maintaining the school grounds and working to fundraise for charities supported by the school. Mrs Brammer helps to run school council. They meet on at least a monthly basis.

Last year (2016) the school council were involved in interviewing candidates for the post of Headteacher. They have a key role in school in analysing what we are doing and discussing how it can be imrpoved. For example in July 2017 the children went to look at a behaviour strategy in another school and used this as a basis to create our own.

You can see more about them and what they do on our display board in school.
