During the first half term of each new academic year, each class, from Year 1 to Year 6, elects a class member to be their representative on the School Council.
Meetings are usually held every two/three weeks, when fundraising events and any matters that have been raised by pupils are discussed. You will often see brightly coloured posters dotted around the school, for which School Council are responsible! In between these meeting the class representatives ask the children in their class for any ideas they have on these subjects. What can we do to make learning better? What can we do to make playtimes better? What good causes should be help?
As well as raising money for the school, School Council also raises money for charities like Red Nose Day or for other needy causes. In 2015/16 we raised money for a Cumbrian Primary School that was flooded. It meant the children could replace ruined playtime toys and resources.
In recent months the School Council held a cake sale for an animal charity and helped write a new school anti bullying leaflet.
Fundraising events have included Discos, Cake Stalls, non-uniform days.
All representatives take their role very seriously and work hard to be the children's voice in the school.
