School Council

All Saints School Council is a proactive group of children elected by their fellow pupils to represent their opinions and think about new ideas to make sure our school stays happy, safe and exciting. The school council takes forward projects on behalf of the children from all classes, and is involved in planning and things like the School Development Plan, governing body meetings and interviewing staff.

 

To be effective, our school council does the following:

  • Represents all pupils and includes as many people as possible
  • Takes time to listen to all children and communicate their views
  • Feeds back to children about what happened about their views
  • Makes things happen – or explains why they can’t!

 

Our School Council consists of 8 members. 2 from Y3, 2 from Y4, 2 from Y5 and 2 from Y6. The council meets every other week to review actions and plan ahead.

 

In 2016 - 2017 the School Council were successful in:

  • Selecting and purchasing new equipment for the playground
  • Leading assemblies about Fundamental British Values in order raise awareness throughout the school
  • Discussing local issues with an MP
  • Organising a trip to Sweden to learn about another culture
  • Running a dog fowling awareness campaign

 

In 2017 - 2018, the School Council are undertaking the following projects:

  • Organising a 'Headteacher for the Day' campaign;
  • Educating the school about the work of 'Cancer Research UK' and running a series of events to raise money;
  • Building a path from the playground to the bandstand so it can be used all year round;
  • Researching school lunches in other schools to develop a pre-ordering system at All Saints;
  • To welcome a school pet.
