Our School Councillors 2020/21
Hawthorn - Sophie and Oliver
Sycamore - Lola and Molly
Chestnut - Hugo and Ellen
Birch - Ava and Amaya
Maple - Ayush and Penny
Our councillors were elected via a range of democratic processes, from writing letters which outlined the skills and commitment that they could bring to the role and making speeches to convince their peers that they are the right person to represent their views. This was followed by a secret ballot to elect the school councillor and vice-councillor.
Role & Activities
In September, each class elects a new captain and a vice captain.
The School Council meets termly with Mrs Taylor and they discuss issues to do with the school.
The School Council play an important role in the appointment of new staff at our school. They form an interview panel and ask the candidates questions which they have formulated. The councillors provide feedback to the Governors and Senior Leadership Team to help inform the final decision about who will be appointed.
During the year the School Council collects the views of all the pupils. Staff are always keen to know the views of our pupils.
We have started to think about ways to raise money for new classroom reading books... watch this space!
