Our school council members are elected early in the Autumn Term. Children who wish to represent their class are asked to deliver a manifesto to their classmates, who then vote for the candidate that they think will represent them best. Two children from each class are elected. The election process helps to develop a knowledge and understanding of democracy, which is one of our British Values. School Council meetings take place after school on a half termly basis. This year the School Council have helped to promote children’s rights as part of our journey on becoming a Rights Respecting School. They have also had a significant role in developing our outdoor area and introducing OPAL to the rest of the school. School council members communicate regularly with their peers, sharing ideas and helping to solve problems. They are also responsible for managing the school tuck shop.
School Council are holding a non uniform day on Friday 1st February to help provide more books for our school library. As payment for coming to school in non uniform, children can either give a £1 donation (which will be used to purchase new books) or donate one or more good quality used books from home. Please ensure that any donated books are in good condition. The children would be very grateful for donations of books from any of the authors below in particular: Roald Dahl Beatrix Potter David Walliams Holly Webb. Jeff Kinney Jacqueline Wilson. Anne Fine. Kady MacDonald Denton. Dick King Smith. CS Lewis. Terry Deary. Anthony Horowitz Colleen Oakes. Michael Broad. Dav Pilkey. Nicki Thornton Francesca Simon. Cressida Cowell. Lauren Child. Sophie Cleverly Enid Blyton. Michael Morpurgo. Julia Donaldson. JK Rowling Dr Seuss. Lemony Snicket. Thank you for your continued support, Mrs Mitchinson and School Council
