School Council

We are proud to be 'Take Care' School Councillors! 

Mrs Lyons helps with the organisation of the School Council's meetings.

At the start of the academic year, we held elections for our new School Councillors.

    This year, our school councillors are:

    • Class 5 - Eli W, Thomas S and Sapphire A
    • Class 4 - Annabella P and Cordelia R
    • Class 3 - Leela C and Hattie M
    • Year 2 - Ola M and Aria K
    • Year 1 - Henry R

    Each week, School Councillors meet and discuss current events and issues and decide ways to improve our school. As a voice for pupils, our school councillors are confident to speak in front of the whole school and will pass on messages to their current classes. We are 'Take Care' children and we are proud to promote this! 

    Our events this year: 

    • We surveyed our classes to find out whether we wanted a Worry Monster or not - school councillors made them if their classes wanted them.
    • We have taken a big approach to healthy eating - we did this by creating a questionnaire, analysed the results and fed back to children.
    • To improve our play times, we became Play leaders, where we taught new games to children on the playground.
    • We reviewed the rules for the playground, field and on the trim trail.
    • As part of our Personal Development Awards, we have talked to our classes about these and helped them to achieve.
    • During anti-bullying week, we set up a poster competition to design an anti-bullying superhero. We judged them and picked winners. We also surveyed children about bullying and created an assembly to inform them of strategies.
    • We have also focussed a lot on internet safety - creating questionnaires, posters/leaflets and informing our classes.
    • We have fundraised a lot for charities/events such as Children in Need, Red Nose Day and Remembrance Day.


    Our events last year:


    • We have also been approached by another pupil in school to help them fundraise for Sheffield Children's Hospital. We are working hard to create fundraising ideas top help this wonderful place. 
    • Over Christmas, Kay from Flowers by Kay decided to raise money for school funds. She raised an amazing £230 for our school! We decided that it should be spent on new playtime equipment for the whole school to enjoy. We made her a thank you card for her generosity. 
    • We completed a pupil questionnaire as a voice for the children in school. This was about safeguarding and behaviour in school. 
    • Parliament week - We learnt about the importance of voting for adults, and what this means for our country. We then taught this to our classes and encouraged them to understand their rights and responsibilities as a child. Each class had their own age-appropriate vote in our very own general election! 
    • Children in Need - We decided on some great ways to fundraise for Children In Need. We successfully managed to organise a 'wear something stripy/spotty/Pudsey related' non-uniform day. To tie in with the theme 'Everyone together', we had a whole school flash mob! Most children took part and had a great time dancing together. We raised over £350 for these events.
    • Remembrance Day - Each break time, we sold poppies, wristbands and other fun gifts to our classes to raise money for all those who fought for our country in the war. We were very proud of ourselves! 
    • Anti-bullying week - we set up games to play outside and encouraged many other children to play with us. We made sure the rules were fair and that everyone could join in! We continued this throughout the year and made ourselves be a 'buddy' to those who needed a friend. Each class also spent time promoting anti-bullying week, and we shared this during 'Odd Sock Day' assembly. 
    • We organised playtime equipment for each class to look after. We have enjoyed researching different types of durable equipment to have and will be allocating it to each class in the new year.
