School Council School Council We want all our children to be active, conscious and democratic in our school community so we have a school council that involves every child and adult. This year children who felt they had the qualities to be an effective school councillor wrote an application. These applications were read by all the class teachers and two children from each class were chosen on the strength of their application. Currently we have 6 school councillors, Year R will become more involved after Christmas. Our school councillors are: Chair- Finley Secretary-Eve George, Harry, Gabriel and Tara. The children write the Agenda and lead the meetings. Their current project is working with the NSPCC and House Teams to plan a funding raising event in school for the NSPCC. They are also deciding how to fundraise for Children in Need, devising a pupil safety questionnaire to be discussed in all classes and they also want to invite Mr Cox (caretaker) to their next meeting to discuss areas of the school that need improving and how this can be achieved. In valuing pupil voice, we offer our children the chance to evaluate our school and curriculum so they can evaluate what we do well and the things they would like to change. RSPCA Cake Sale Our Smart School Council voted on choosing a national charity for our Spring 2017 charity. They voted for the RSPCA and a cake sale. It was a beautiful day and a nice way to end the term by sitting on the playground eating yummy cup cakes.
