School Council

Friday 8th December
Today we held a very sucessful 'Bring and Buy Sale'. This had been organised by the School Council but all of the Y6 children were involved in selling the goods on the day. You can see from the photographs how much fun the children had.
We raised £180 towards the School Council project of improving the play space for the children.
Thank you for your support.

The children did exceptionally well to produce some especially 'wacky' hair styles. Well done everyone!
Enjoy the photos.

What a great day for our sponsored walk. Several families enjoyed the walk from Belvoir Castle to school this morning and then there was a relaxed atmophere in the school playground with everyone enjoying the tasty BBQ food. Thank you to all those who took part and to the staff who gave up their time to help, it is much appreciated.

The latest School Council Fundraiser - to raise money towards improving the play space - was 'The Smartie Challenge'. Each pupil was given a tube of Smarties (to eat and enjoy) and were then asked to be helpful at home and do jobs to earn money. This money was then put into the Smartie tubes and returned to school.
The total raised was an impressive £357.89. Well done everyone!

Class 4 had great fun this afternoon selling items at the School Council's Bring and Buy sale.

Our School Council is made up of ten pupils - two from classes 1, 2 and 3, and four from class 4. The School Council has a say in various areas of school life.

Constitution (first written 2012/13 and reviewed October 2015)

Objectives

  • To give pupils the opportunity to be involved in improving school life for everyone.
  • For pupils to work as partners with staff, developing a caring school community.
  • To provide all pupils with opportunities to develop skills that will be important through their lives.
  • To involve pupils in solving problems and resolving conflicts.

Elections

  • An election will be held at the beginning of each academic year.
  • The school council will be made up of representatives from all classes (from Years 1 - 6).
  • The school council will elect a Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary to serve the school for a year.
  • The Chair, Vice-Chair and Secretary will be voted by the School Council members at the first meeting.
  • A councillor, once elected, will be on the School Council for one year.

Meetings

  • The school council will meet approximately once a half term.
  • The secretary will take minutes of the school council meetings. These will be distributed to classes to make sure everyone knows about the activities of the council.
  • The chair, vice-chair and secretary are responsible for managing the activities of the council; for instance, planning meetings, taking minutes, talking with the link teacher.
  • The chairperson and vice chairperson are responsible for running meetings, giving everyone an equal chance to have their say, and making sure the council comes up with practical solutions to problems.

Responsibilities of pupil councillors

  • A class council meeting will be held before each School Council meeting.
  • Class representatives will take issues brought up by their class to the school council. They should put across the views of their class, not their own opinions.
  • Class representatives will report back to their class after every school council meeting.
  • If a representative misses school council meetings three times without a good reason, the class can choose to elect a new representative.
  • If a representative does not behave as a good role model, they will receive a warning and may be replaced by a new elective.
