The aim of the School Council is to promote fundamental British values including democracy, mutual respect, rule of law and tolerance.
At the beginning of each school year a child from each class across the school is elected by their peers to join the School Council. The team members then meet fortnightly with Miss Hopkins, Assistant Head Teacher, to discuss and address any issues raised by the children and these are then shared with the rest of their class, sometimes through assemblies. Past and current issues and ideas include improving games at lunch time, raising money for school trips and setting up a system to visit the library during play times.
We will soon be visiting The Houses of Parliament to improve our knowledge about how our Government system works!
