Spring Projects 


  • To start the new half term off, the children completed pupil voice surveys for some of the subjects. We then took their suggestions on how to make the curriculum better. 
  • As part of Internet Safety week, we conducted a survey of how safe the children were on the internet. We asked if they knew how to stay safe, if they knew what to do if they got an inappropriate message and if they followed the rules that they have in school when they are at home. The teachers then delivered an assembly and some internet safety lessons and we re-did the survey to assess the impact. Overall, the children seemed to learn a lot about how to stay safe - they now need to ensure they follow the rules which they have been made aware of! 
  • Parking around school is an issue. The school council are trying to find new ways to ensure the grown ups do not park irresponsibly. If you have any ideas then please speak to your school council representative. 

Autumn Projects 


  • The School Council are in the process of booking a trip to go to the parliament buildings in London. We are hoping to learn more about politics and the UK voting system. To get the permission we needed from Mrs Downing, the children created presentations about the benefits a trip like this would have. Luckily, Mrs Downing has agreed! We have raised the money we need through a sponsored silence. 
  • Members of the school council have visited The Children's Adventure Farm Trust. We then delivered an assembly about what we learnt about the charity and now we will be raising money for this worthy cause. If you have any ideas please speak to your class representative. We have already organised a pyjama day for the full school which will be on 1st November. 
  • Mr Spinola has decided to start a new after school club. The representatives asked their class mates and we have decided to run a boxing club. 
  • Anti-Bullying week is coming up. In view of this, we asked the children what they know about bullying. We shared the anti-bullying policy with them and asked them for their feedback. 
  • Rose (our school chef) asked the school council for some feedback on school lunches. The school council conducted a survey which collected data about what foods people really liked, which dishes they were less fond of and any new ideas. 
  • A representative from the PTA came to our meeting to discuss fundraising ideas and events which are taking place. We shared ideas and then spoke to Mrs Downing about making them a reality. 
  • With mental health being a huge focus at the minute, we asked the children to discuss what would make them feel more safe and secure in school. They came up with some excellent suggestions such as calming music for the start of the day, fiddle toys, mindfulness colouring groups, a buddy system for stressful times (maybe assessments), comfy areas in each classroom and the list goes on! 

School Council 2018 - 2019



Friday 21st June - A VIP guest


At the start of the year the school council were keen to know more about politics. We therefore invited Sir Graham Brady into our school to tell us about his job and give us some information about his party. Today he very kindly came in to talk to the children. We started with an assembly and then the school council had the opportunity to interview him in more detail. 

Our Projects

Thursday 14th March 


After the success of our last book swap we decided to run another on World Book Day. Again, we had lots of books handed in and the children were able to take home a book they hadn’t read before. The children were all very enthusiastic and enjoyed making their choices. 

Saturday 1st December - Lantern Parade 


For the last few weeks the school council have been working hard to promote the lantern parade. They have made posters and flyers and then stayed late after school to talk about the parade with parents and try and encourage people to attend. Fortunately, their hard work paid off and we had an excellent turn out! 


Thank you so much to everybody that attended and we you had a great time attending the workshops, marching in the parade and singing Christmas songs with the choir!


Here are some photos from the event. 

Thursday 15th November - Book Swap 


One of our Year 5 school council representatives had a really good idea to do a book swap. The idea behind it was that everybody would get the opportunity to swap a book they had read for a new one. Lots of children took part and it was very well organised by our school council team. Thank you to everyone who brought in a book and thank you to all of my helpers.
