"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

School Council

The School Council is the children's forum in school and the children are encouraged to take an active role in decision making. Representatives from each class are elected by their classmates and meet on a regular basis to contribute ideas on the running of the school.

We were really proud of the School Council as they planned and delivered an assembly to raise awareness of Children in Need. They even got the whole school up and moving with Joe Wicks’ ‘5 Minute Move’! Take a look at some of their hard work…

This was the first School Council meeting of the new school year. The main purpose was to introduce ourselves as well as consider our role for the upcoming year.


Miss Waterland reminded the children about our Superpillar focus in school. As a Council, the children chose to focus on Shadow’s powers of being a team player and specifically, showing respect. As well as in class, the children said they would like to do this by working as a team to raise money for given causes (linked to the money raised for Oscar). The children shared ideas to raise money, including a bake sale or bringing in a donation to dress up.


The children are going to ask the rest of their class for any other fundraising ideas and this will be shared at the next meeting.
