The school council is made up of 14 children. Two children from each year group, from years 1-6 and two children from our Small Learning Community. Council members are selected in September using a voting system and are supported by Mrs Kendall.
School council meetings take place on a Friday afternoon, the first Friday of each month. Each meeting has a different focus whereby school council members get to voice and share their opinions about issues around the school. The children representing school council are responsible for reporting feedback to their peers. They represent the student body. The school council will tackle important issues surrounding the local area as well as the wider world.
