School Council

"I like how year 6 get to learn ukulele." - Caitlyn

Every year the children put themselves forward to be Class reps, or school council's Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer, and Clerk. Class reps are voted in by the individual classes and the other roles are decided by a secret ballot, following the candidates presentation of their manifestos.

These children are responsible for discussing school matters, reporting back to their classes, and putting forward ideas from their class to the meetings.

Meetings are held regularly and all the children involved work really hard together.

Since the start of the school year we have already had our first fundraiser! This was a joint event with FADS, a Country Fair and Dog Show. The school council and Mrs Bentley took responsibility for the dog show. The day was a huge success with everyone enjoying the day. We had lots of dogs take part in the show and lots of wonderful rosettes, trophies and prizes. Of course this wouldn't have been possible if not for the support we had been given from local businesses. Many donating money, prizes or raffle prizes for our event. We would like to say a huge thank you to our supporters, your help along with everyone that attended the day we managed to raise £1212 to go to FADS and School Council!
