OUR School Council

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.

The School Council consists of two children from each year group who have been nominated and voted for by their peers. The vote takes place annually in September. School Councillors hold their office for one year.

A member of staff supports the children at their meetings. They bring ideas on a variety of aspects of school life and discuss possible changes or improvements that could take place. Please see the links below for our most recent School Council minutes.


MP Jason McCartney's visit

MP Jason McCartney visited school to meet our School Council and help them plant a tree, one of fifteen donated by charity The Woodland Trust. Pupils had written to the MP inviting him to conduct the tree-planting ceremony, as part of the national Queen's Green Canopy initiative celebrating the Jubilee.

School councilors quizzed the member of parliament on a number of issues, including the environment, legislation regarding smoking and drinking and even local housing and then helped him with the tree-planting. All fifteen trees have now been planted around the school grounds and we look forward to them growing in the years to come.
