School Council

Chair PersonVice ChairpersonChildren from Year 2 to Year 6 select 2 representatives to serve on our School Council. This is a great honour for them and shows that they are respected by their classmates.  The work of the School Council is currently 

co-ordinated by Miss Steel.  The Council generally meets every week on a Tuesday.  Roles and responsibilities have been allocated and we aim to take a very active role, making a positive contribution to school life!  2017/18 is going to be a very exciting year for us!


In 2016/17 we had a very successful year, taking an active part in charity events and STEM week. We worked really hard to improve our outdoor environment, making bird baths and hedgehog hotels!

We really enjoyed working as a team to contribute to our Harvest Festival assembly. We rearranged the letters of 'Harvest' to make many different words. This proved to be a very fun problem solving activity and the older children helped the younger ones! We plan to take a very active role in future assemblies.


Alan Campbell MP working lunch- We are very excited for our meeting on the 8th of November and are planning lots of questions to ask him. We think that it will be very interesting to find out more about his role as an MP and think that he will really inspire us!

The School Council loved judging the best pumpkin and cakes in the Bake-Off. It was a big responsibility and we took the role very seriously! We were very happy with our winners. Well done to everyone who took part!
