Our school has an active school council with representatives from Year 2 to Year 6. They hold council meetings fortnight and take the key points of the meeting back to their own class for feedback and suggestions. The school council meets with Mrs Rathbone, the Head of School, and on a monthly basis feedback to the staff during a staff meeting. The school council hold their own budget and fundraise throughout the year by engaging the school in different activities from Dress up days to Sponsored Runs. These funds are used to purchase equipment for the school.
The school council also take part in staff interviews to ensure that their voice is represented at all levels across the school.
New school council members are:
Year 2 -Bibi-Anais Cobbinah and Dominic Johnson
Year 3 - Maxima Jacobs and Ethan Whalley
Year 4 - Olivia Cliffe and Charlie Smith
Year 5 - Thomas Lowton and Sophie Rubanski
Year 6 - Finnian Doyle and Maisie Beattie
The Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl also form part of the school council.
The school elects a Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl from Year 6 each year. These children assist the Principal at Awards Assemblies, receiving and showing around visitors, Event Evenings and other School Events.
This year the Head Boy is Joe Davies and the Head Girl is Summer Lindsay.
The Deputy Head Boy is Tyler Morris and the Deputy Head Girl is Ellie McGough.
The school also trains its own playground leaders and these children then form a rota to provide playground friends and games for all children on the playground at playtimes and lunchtimes.
BBC Radio Stoke Clean start Campaign 2019
This week the school council participated in the 'Clean Start' challenge where they worked together to keep our community clean. The children wanted to start at our very own school, they each went around and collected the litter that had gathered in our school environment. As we made our way around the school grounds the children discussed the importance of picking up litter and the importance of using the litter bins around us.
