School Council listen to the children they represent and work to make things happen. They set themselves targets to achieve each year and hold regular meetings. They organise and run activities around the school, have had a tyre park and trim trails installed, organise play equipment for playtimes and have supported a range of charities.
During our annual Anti-bullying Week School Council organise a range of activities involving the whole school. This has included the children working in their classes on trust exercises, collaborating in their house teams to prepare and perform anti-bullying presentations, awareness raising about cyber-bullying, organising a blue cake sale and putting on a Blue Day.
