Review of the Year
School Council have had an amazing year – although it was shorter than expected.
First off the School Elections created a real buzz and saw every pupil voting for who they wished to be their Class Councillor. Coming together they organised some fantastic charity events raising money for Young Mind, Children in Need and the Poppy Appeal.
Furthermore, School Council also became a more autonomous body deciding the projects they wished to work on to improve the school and the wider community. Unfortunately some of this projects will need to roll over due to the School closures.
We have also come close to being an award winning School Council. It is my pleasure to announce for his work on School Council this year, Karol in 4DS, has come runner up in the Primary School Student Voice Awards. This was for his dedication in raising money for the Australian Bush Fires along with his active role in many other School Council projects. The Primary School Student Voice Awards comments included:
This pupil's contribution to his school and local community is evident in his listening ear and fundraising efforts. Being able to create a safe environment for his peers to debate and discuss key issues is no easy task, so it is highly commendable that he has been able to do so.
As I reflect, I am so proud of our School Council and the work they have undertaken this year. I look forward to electing our new School Councillors early next academic year and concluding some of the projects, such as our playground rules this year’s Council worked so hard on.

School Council logo competition
School Council are running an amazing competition to design our new School Council logo! The School Council will choose the best logo and it will be used on the school website. Also it will be on everything that the School Council makes.
The logo must include the name of the School and the School Council. It must be on A4 piece of paper so it will be big enough to scan. It can be as creative as you like and it can be any colour you want. If you want to enter please give the logo to your School Council representative by TUESDAY 22nd OCTOBER 2020.

Wednesday 18th September 2019
Today, we all got to vote for who our School Councilors will be. In turn, each class got to visit the Polling Station and vote on our ballot papers. Mr King supervised the elections along with the year 6 Councilors and they told us about how voting is one of our British Values as we live in a democracy. There was such a buzz around school. Below are some pictures from the exciting election! Scroll through to see even more!
After voting had closed. Mr King and the Year 6 School Councilors began counting the votes. We were amazed by how many needed sorting! We began to wonder how long it took in a real election!
We cannot wait to reveal our School Councilors in Assembly on Monday! Good luck to all candidates!
