The School Council is an important, respected part of the management and leadership of the school. Children write manifestos for why they should be school council members which they present to their class. Representatives are elected for their year group. The Council takes issues raised by the pupils and considers how we can make our school even better. They discuss these, and puts forward proposals to the Governors and the Head of School.
Recent initiatives include:
- Raising funds for children in need, local hospices and national fundraisers.
- Redecorating outdoor areas
- Raising money for more books in library.
- Buying play equipment.

They listened and learnt about each other schools and asked questions. They also reflected on learning in our schools and how to develop the character and whole child.
