School Council

Picture 1
At the beginning of a new school year, two pupils from every class are elected to be on the School Council. This is a democratic system, where pupils complete an election form and talk to their classes about why they should represent their year group on the School Council. Every pupil completes a voting slip and the two pupils with the highest number of votes are awarded the title of School Councillor!

School Council 2018-2019

 

This year we have another dedicated School Council:

 

Chaplin Class - Massi and Obaa

Monet Class - Parker and Adele

Gandhi Class - Milo and Alexius

Mandela Class - Freya and Joshua

Freeman Class - Scarlett, Erinnin and Hannah

Darwin Class - Alice and Drew

 

So far this year, the School Council has amended our 'Around the School Charter'. They also raised money for the Poppy Appeal by selling poppies, wristbands, keyrings and bracelets. 

 

Currently the School Council is working on a very big project!

Alice, one of our Year 6 School Councillors, suggested changing our class names. She had noticed that only one of our present classes is named after an inspirational female figure. She felt that there should be more of a balance of male and female class names. The School Council set upon this task just before Christmas and asked their classes for ideas on new class names. Alice and her Year 6 School Council partner, Drew, have both planned whole school assemblies on this project. Drew planned and shared a Powerpoint, with suggested inspirational male figures, during a whole school assmbly at the beginning of January. Alice has planned a Powerpoint, with suggested inspirational female figures, which she is going to present to the whole school at the beginning of February. 

 

During our last School Council meeting, the School Councillors narrowed down a very long list of suggested male class names to a list of 18! Over the next couple of weeks, the School Councillors will be asking their classes to vote for their top three names!

We will repeat this process with female names after Alice's assembly.
