School council

May 2022

 

Our School Council have been super busy so far this year and have been successful in helping gain some additional funding for some new books in our classrooms which everyone was super excited. We are now preparing for the Queen's Jubilee and are excited to celebrate this event. Keep updated through the school newsletters and through your class representatives.

December 2021 - New School Council

 

Our School Council has now been re-established. Each child, who wanted to, had an opportunity to pitch their reasons to their class and then each class were able to vote two council members who will be part of the School Council. Many links were made with our learning around British Values.

 

We have been able to meet a couple of times and are keen to bring new reading books to each class. The council members have taken views from their own classes and have written to Mrs Lillycrop so hopefully in the New Year we can continue to push this so we can have some brand new books that we will all enjoy. 

 

The School Council are keen to make further changes and run certain events to support with life at Edmund De Moundeford so continue to check this page to see what they are up to.

Our School Council aims to give children the opportunity to have a voice. Two representatives from each class will attend meetings and put forward their opinions on issues raised by both themselves and the staff. They will then take this information back to the class and share with their classmates. 

Currently, due to Covid, there is not an active school council, to avoid cross contamination of bubbles.

What did our School Councillors do in the Spring term 2020?

 

1) We talked about how to make our school a better place. Two of the ideas were to make sure all children knew the school rules, and that we made playtimes happier for all children.

 

2) We organised and judged a 'School Rules' poster competition.  We were really impressed with the quality of the entries, but finally picked our winners which are on display in the school foyer.

 

3) We introduced 'Playground Pals'. Six Year 6 children were chosen to work in pairs as Playground Pals.  Their job was to help those children who didn't have anyone to play with a break and lunchtimes.  They are doing a brilliant job.

 

4) We amended the Pupil Questionnaire, which all children completed this term.  

 

5) We discussed different ways we could make our school even more enjoyable. Some of the ideas included: having a 'sweet treat' breaktime; more toys at breaktime; having an art day; and litter picking at the park to help the community.

 

6) Following on from the litter picking idea, we drafted a letter to send to the council asking for materials to help us with our task.  Unfortunately, this is all on hold at the moment, due to the current situation.  However, watch this space...
