The School Council are a group of children who work towards, not just making the majority of people happy but, making the whole school happy! The work together with staff by sharing ideas and opinions and aim to help make improvements because they care about our school and all of the people in it. The children involved assisting in making our school even more fun and an even better place to be so that everyone will enjoy their learning and experience here. 

Members of the School Council run and host things like the Christmas Fair which benefits our school and the community. The children try to help those less fortunate by having charity events and hold competitions like ‘Design an eye patch for Pudsey’ when it is Children In Need and having fancy dress days with prizes for the best dressed.

All of the children involved always want to be on the Student Council to take greater responsibility for our school and one group member said that it is “Fun and entertaining!”. 

Our school council is overseen and supported by Mr Wogan and Miss Keenan but LED by the children themselves and meet every 2 weeks.

One last thing ... if need anything or want your opinions to be heard, tell your class rep. They're here to help!
