The main aim of the Pupil Council is to help to make our school a better place for the children and to give us an opportunity to have our opinions and ideas heard. Each class has two representatives who are elected for half of the academic year. After February half-term, new representatives are chosen.
At the first meeting, the important roles and jobs are selected and Mr Buckley helps us to conduct our meetings. Mrs Powell, the Pupil Council Governor, also attends our meetings.
The class representatives tell the children in their classes what has been discussed at each meeting and the children can ask the representatives to take forward their ideas to the next meeting.
Everybody gets a fair say in the meeting and nobody gets left out.
Pupil Led School Initiative Groups
Currently, we are working with pupils to develop their ideas to improve key improvement areas of our work - in particular we are currently setting up a new group, who are working to raise the profile of how maths concepts are taught in school. They will endeavour to post on our school website a series of videos so parents can further support their children at home. Great work!
Children are also consulted regarding other key issues in school, such school meals, fundraising issues and curriculum support.
Pupil Questionnaire: Below, we will post the results of any Pupil Council questionnaires.
PUPIL COUNCIL TRIP TO THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT 2017
On Friday 10th November, the Pupil Council were lucky enough to visit the Houses Of Parliament. We all had an amazing day and all learnt a great deal. We visited a range of rooms (House of Commons, House of Lords, the Queens robing room, Westminster Hall) during the tour. We had two fantastic tour guides that shared a range of facts and stories. We learnt a lot of facts both about the history of Parliament and how democracy works on a grand scale.
We hope that you enjoy browsing through our photos as much as we enjoyed the visit!
HELPING TO IMPROVE SCHOOL MENUS
Throughout July, Pupil Council helped Mrs Hazard to improve our school meals. Firstly, had discussed the balance of various meals and then helped choose a 3 week menu with a range of healthy and delicious food choices.
Then we had a very exciting meeting - where we got to taste-test a range of the new menu! The food was delicious.
During the Autumn Term 2017, we plan to deliver a questionnaire to find out if the children are enjoying the new menu.
