School Council

Our School Council Logo

 

Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community. This links to our ethos on promoting British Values:

  • Democracy
  • Law
  • Freedom
  • Respect
  • Tolerance 

 

2016-2017

Autumn Term:

Welcome to our School Council for this year! The children were elected by their classmates having said why they would like the responsibility of representing their class on the council. 

 

One of the first tasks the School Council had this term was to prepare questions to ask when Mr Rossington and other members of the governors were interviewing for a new deputy head teacher. The questions really made the candidates think and both said how brilliant the children were.

 

Following this, Mr Cameron who is our chair of governors, wanted to come and meet with the School Council. He told the children how good their questions were and that they represented school brilliantly. He spent time at one of our meetings and the children asked him lots of questions about his role on the governing body. They found this very insightful!

 

Children In Need - Friday 18th November 

A letter has been sent home making sure everyone is aware of what we are doing to celebrate Children In Need. The letter is on the letter section of the website but we hope to raise lots of money by:

  • Dressing showing 'spots'/in Pudsey clothes (£1 donation)
  • Cake sale at break times (25p per cake)
  • Dress your teddy in spotty clothes/design a paper copy (20p)

 

We are looking forward to a great day with lots of money being raised for the charity! 

 

2015-2016

 

Autumn Term:

Welcome to our School Council for this year! The children were elected by their classmates having said why they would like the responsibility of representing their class on the council. The official ballot box which was borrowed from Gedling Borough Council made the experience more authentic!  

 

Over the next few weeks, we will be working hard to create our own crest that represents our School Council. This has come from last years council members visiting the chambers and liking the idea of having a logo to show what we stand for and represent. All children will have a say in this and we look forward to sharing this with everyone once it has been designed and made! 

 

Children in Need - Friday 13th November

A letter has been sent home making sure everyone is aware of what we are doing to celebrate Children in Need. The letter is on the letter section of the website but we hope to raise lots of money by:

  • Dressing as a superhero/in Pudsey clothes (£1 donation)
  • Cake sale at break times (40p per cake)
  • Dress your teddy as a hero/design a paper copy (20p)

 

We are looking forward to a great day with lots of money being raised for the charity! 

 

*A big thank you to everyone for all your support with Children in Need! Your efforts helped us raise over £450 for the charity!* 

 

Date for your diary: Friday 18th December is Christmas Jumper Day! This year the monies raised is for ITV's Text Santa appeal

which helps lots of charities compared to the one like previous years. Last year we raised over £400 and the children (and staff!) looked fantastic in their festive jumpers so we are looking forward to this again! 

 

A letter has gone out about the Christmas Jumper Day. Please see the letter section for a copy of the letter and a 'DIY' idea page if you want to get creative!

 

Thank you for your support with our Christmas Jumper Day - we raised over £150 to send to the charities. 

 

Spring Term:

We are working really hard on designing our crest- all will be revealed soon! We've had lots of meetings and have been busy communicating with the rest of our classes to decide on what we would like our slogan to be. We have shown great respect for each other with this and democracy when making sure that all children, in meetings and as whole class, have an opportunity to suggest slogans and vote for their favourite. We will keep you all updated!

 

Our logo has been completed! We are very proud of how we worked together to achieve the outcome. It is displayed proudly on our display in school and it is on this section of the website to have a look at! 

 

Summer Term:

This term begin with the exciting news that our Queen is turning 90 years old - and we are going to celebrate it! As the Queen celebrates her birthday twice, we have decided to hold our celebrations in June.

On Friday 10th June we are planning:

  • A non-uniform day where the theme is red/white/blue or something which represents the royal family

  • A whole school picnic on the field at lunchtime

  • An afternoon tea party

  • Games and activities throughout the day

All children have received a personal invite and parents were given all of the important information about the day and the help which is needed. We will remind everyone about the events after half term. We are looking forward to a great day!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2014-2015

 

Autumn term

This term has been a busy one for the School Council!

Our most important job was to create questions to ask people who wanted to become our new headteacher. We even got to ask them and be involved in the whole process! We really enjoyed the challenge and responsibility and are really looking forward to welcoming Mr Rossington as our new headteacher in January. 

 

Children in Need was a great success, everyone looked great dressed as superheros! The best dressed teddy competition was difficult to judge! Take a look at some of the pictures in the gallery. 

 

We raised over £400 for Save the Children with our fantastic effort supporting their Christmas Jumper Day! Thank you for all your donations at the Carol Service! We all loved wearing the jumpers!

 

Spring term

Red Nose Day was a huge success! The day was very busy with lots of things going on - all the hard work and effort paid off!

With everyone wearing red items and making their face funny for money, along with the the cake sales and photo booths, we managed to raise a staggering £538.67! We are so proud of everyone who supported the day we planned. The money we send from school gets doubled for Comic Relief this year so we are even more pleased with the amount raised.

Thank you for supporting the day. The photos from each year group's photo booth are in the gallery section for you to enjoy (and laugh at!) 

 

Summer term

Our busy summer term began with us visiting the Mayor's Chambers at the Civic Centre in Arnot Hill Park. Due to our interest in the General Election, we were excited to visit the newly elected Mayor of Gedling, Councillor Lawrence. We were really impressed by the size of the Chambers and asked some fantastic questions to help us understand the role of the Mayor and what it is like to be a part of the council. We really appreciated the drinks and biscuits in his parlour afterwards and even came away with our own 'Mayor Bear' badge to wear with pride to remind us of the visit! We will be sharing our new knowledge with our classes. It is given us lots of ideas for our School Council and how we can develop it further. Watch this space...!
