School Council

The School Council is made up of two representatives from each class. Frances McNaughton 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:

• Surveying the school to see what people would like in the playground.
• Fundraising for different charities including Macmillan Cancer Research, The Dementia Association and Down’s Syndrome Association.
• Making plans to visit other School Councils to see how they operate.

School staff have focused 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.

‘Thank you very much for all the help and support you have given our daughter. The Link is a great school and our decision to send our daughter here was the best decision we made.”
