- The school council first met in October. We discussed the role of a school councillor. The children wanted to improve our school, bring new ideas and make sure our school was a happy and bright place to be. We also discussed ideas for UK Parliament week. We held a special assembly for the children in KS2 where the new school councillors introduced themselves to the school community and were presented with their school council badges. We discuss the importance of democracy and how the democratic process works.
- As part of parliament week, we were lucky to receive a special visit from our local MP Angela Rayner. The school council were able to ask questions and came away with lots of ideas about how to use their voices to represent the other children in school.
- The school council have taken part in a pupil voice survey to find areas of the school which they would like to focus on. From this, the children all agreed that they would like a climbing frame to be installed on the KS2 play ground. The proposal was taken to Mr Kordemir, who presented the children with a number of options. The school council discussed these, then voted on which one they would like. Watch this space to see what was chosen!
- The school council have also been busy discussing and refining the school's child-friendly anti-bullying policy. Copies have know been sent to all classes and worry boxes are being made to support each class.

- In 2020-2021, the school council chose 3 charities for our school to champion for the rest of the school year. They suggested several charities which are important to them personally and which help support people in our school community. Then they discussed each option and voted on which three would be our charities of choice for 2021.
Our fundraising total was an impressive £1591.
- Led by our Head boy, the school council arranged a non-uniform day on Friday 8th April 2022 to raise funds for the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. They asked everyone in school to come dressed in blue and yellow to show their support for the people of Ukraine at this devastating time.
They raised an amazing £263.50.
