Our school council is made up of 2 representatives from each class in Year 1 and Year 2. Every class votes for two people that they think would make good school councillors. They are looking for people who can listen, are responsible and are good speakers.
The School Council meets at least once every half term. They start by listening to the opinions of the other children in their class on the items from the School Council agenda. They then go to the full council meetings to discuss the ideas from their class with Mrs Ms Elliott, Mrs Burden and Mrs Guthrie. When they return to their class they then feedback what they have decided and what the new agenda is.
The council discuss various matters, ranging from new playground equipment to friendship issues and new ideas to develop the school.
The school council works hard to solve problems, bring new ideas and to make the school an even better place to be.
