School Council

Your School. Your Voice

The School Council is made up of two children from every class (Reception-Year 2). They are democratically elected each September and meet at least half-termly with Miss Wood; sometimes it is far more often if we’re really busy.

We discuss issues that affect all of us in our school community. Last year we worked on:

  • interviewing our new Head Teacher
  • improving playtimes – a playleader was hired for lunchtime play
  • switching all the bread at lunch times to a healthier 50/50 variety and limiting drinks to milk or water for school hot dinners
  • gathering ideas for library mural

This year we decided that we would like to do more projects that help our wider community too. So far we have:

  • organised a collection for the Norwich Foodbank
  • helped sell poppies for Remembrance Day
  • planned activities for BBC Children in Need

The School Council is the voice of all children at our school. At class councils we pass on information to the rest of our class and ask for their opinions and ideas. We really aim to help improve our school by working as a team.
