The School Council is made up of two representatives from Years 1, 2, 3 and 4; and four representatives from Year 5. We are an elected body; elected by our classmates to serve on an annual basis.
The School Council usually meet once every half term and are supported by Mrs Coates, one of our governors. We then hold class meetings to discuss and give feedback on any items.
The School Council work with the governors to review school policies such as: anti-bullying and behaviour; and also the online safety policy; and share these with pupils and parents. We meet with Julie, our cook, to discuss school lunch menus and have also helped organised our annual pupil survey. Every year, children from the council represent our school at the Annual Kirklees Fairtrade Convention.
Each year the school council also chooses a charity to support. We then organise and run fund raising events. So far this year the council have decorated and sold biscuits and buns; run stalls and games at the Christmas Fayre; held a second hand book stall during World Book Week and organised an “eggciting” egg rolling competition.
