School Council 2023-2024

Spring Term Update

Online Safety

This term the school council explored Online Safety throughout the school. The School Council asked some questions to the whole school:

– How many hours do you spend in front of a screen per day?

Less than one hour,  1-2 hours,  3 or more hours

– Which services do you use the most when you’re online?

Gaming,  Social Media,  Entertainment

– Have you met all your online friends in person? How do you know who they really are?

The school council found out that the majority of children used a screen for 1-2 hours a day, mostly for gaming. When asked how they know who they play with online, most children had obtained usernames from friends at school in person or through parents.

Easter Egg Competition

Leading up to Easter, the school council ran a ‘design your own Easter egg’ competition. There were a lot of fantastic entries across all year groups which made the school councils job to pick a winner really tough. Congratulations to those who won!

JRSO – Design Your Own Helmet

The School Council supported the Junior Road Safety Officers over the Spring Term to design a helmet for using skateboards, scooters and bikes etc. The School Council helped the JRSO hand out sheets, collect entries in from their own year groups and helped vote for the winners. Again, there were a lot of entries across each year group. Congratulations to those who won the competition, they received prizes to help keep them safe on the road!

Red Nose Day

On Red Nose Day the school council, along with Mr Jones, held a competition for the teachers to take part in. They had to place a Jaffa Cake on their forehead and without using their hands they had to get it to their mouth and eat it! In front of the whole school, Mr Rugge emerged victorious!

The whole school was challenged by the School Council to do something funny. Year 4 were a particular highlight, walking around the school telling us facts about… poo!

There was also a whole school conga line and the children came in wearing red, raising money for Red Nose Day as well.

School Elections 2023

The School elections have taken place and we had over 85 applicants across the school which is amazing. The school councillors from last year read through all the applications anonymously and along with each class voted for their new school councillors. As a result, I am pleased to announce the new school council for 2023-2024.

The focus for the school council In Autumn term, was Pupil Safety. The school councillors have been finding out how safe the children felt in different areas around the school. The school councillors will ‘check in’ with those children and make sure they are feeling safe. Other tasks include making sure everyone that is a school dinner knows and understands what choice of drinks they are allowed, how much salad they are allowed and where to put dirty plates and cutlery. In addition, the school council decided on what we should wear on various charity days and they have been helping out with organising and setting up the school Christmas fayre.

What do we do?

A school council is a group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

The objective of an effective School Council is to help children and young people to:

  • Enjoy and feel empowered by their education.
  • Feel that their school responds to their needs and views.
  • Have the opportunity to let adults know their feelings and opinions about things that affect them.
  • Have a say about decisions, and to play an active role in making their school a better place.

The School Council Vision Statement is as follows:

  • Our school council works together as a team to ensure we can be the best school possible by discussing ideas and making decisions.
  • We aim to make pupils feel comfortable, happy and safe at school
  • We aim to listen to others and discuss comments and suggestions that would make our school an even more wonderful place
