Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
Our new school council for 2018/19 has now been elected. Each class chooses their councillor who attends school council meetings. This gives the children a voice in decision making and things that effect school life. It also allows any concerns children may have to be discussed. School Councillors attend Health and Safety meetings with governors to represent views of pupils in school.
School Council also take an active part in school life by planning and completing projects to benefit all. Previously school council has been involved in developing our friendship area, sourcing funding for our cookery equipment and fundraising initiatives to further improve our school.
We have lots of new ideas for this coming year and look forward to involving everyone in our new projects.
We were asked by the Royal British Legion to make poppies for Remembrance Sunday. The poppies were constructed by all year groups and made into a dress which was displayed in the window of J. Duckworth. We visited the shop to view the dress and had our photograph taken for The Shields Gazette.
We had a visitor from the Royal British Legion who lead an assembly to tell us about their work helping injured and retired service veterans. He told us the significance of the poppy wreaths and left us some to display in school. We then had a sale to raise funds across school to support their fundraising appeal.
