The School Council is made up of two representatives from each class. Nicola Andrews, the Assistant head oversees the School Council’s activities and seeks to help the children influence school development. Each year the children identify targets from the whole school development plan that they wish to support.
This has included:
• Deciding on new equipment for Sports lessons and the playground.
• Identifying treats and special activities for school leavers.
• Completing surveys to decide on lunch time clubs.
• Raising funds for different charities including Unicef, Save the Children, Sports and Comic relief. Macmillan Cancer Research and Oxfam.
School staff have focussed on how to make marking and feedback more relevant to children after pupils identified through the annual pupil survey that they needed more help to know how to improve their work.
