School Council is comprised of councillors from Y1 –Y6 elected by their classmates. They represent the views of our pupils and allow them the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of our school community.
Each councillor attends school council meetings. This gives the children a voice in decision making and allows any concerns to be discussed. Any issues raised are reported to the Head Teacher or relevant member of staff. School Council are involved in developing procedures and routines, improving attendance, suggesting improvements in health and safety and other aspects of school life. They also work with staff to enhance areas of school e.g. playground, amphitheatre and friendship area.
As part of our British Values and Rights Respecting Curriculum, councillors have been involved in projects in our local community as well as organising activities for national events such as Comic Relief, Remembrance Day, and World Book Day etc. Following our extremely successful science week we are presently organising visits to clean up any plastics from our beautiful local beach.
Please look in this section of our website for updates on our activities.
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.
