Each Year we elect two pupils from each class to represent our voice on the School Council. The Council’s aim is provide us with an opportunity to participate in a democratic society and to support our school community. We represent the diversity in our school and treat everyone with respect and tolerance.
This year we have chosen to set ourselves three achievable objectives each term. These are: a fundraising project to support the wider community, a community project to support the local community and a school based project.
Fundraising – Children in Need, John Taylor Hospice, Christmas Jumper Day
Community – Blankets for the homeless – Crisp Packet project
School – Litter picking
Fundraising – Marsh Hill Madness – talent competition via Teams! For John Taylor Hospice
Community – Recycling Felt pens
School – Peer mediation
Fundraising – Charity to be elected by School Council after consulting with their classes
Community – Tin Mountain – supporting our local foodbanks
School – Parking and Road safety
We also discuss other important matters which can be raised by individual councillors or on behalf of pupils in their class. We maintain Minutes of our meetings for anyone to read as a public document and complete a financial report to show our contribution to the wider community.
