Each year group has 2 school councillors, who applied for the role and were then chosen by their peers.
This is a great honour as they represent their class at school council meetings. Supported by Mrs Browne, the children meet regularly every half term and discuss matters of interest to their class.
The children have already met to discuss their ideas for this term. The meeting was led by our two Y6 councillors and everyone took part sharing and discussing each proposal.
Currently the children are designing posters high lighting road safety when crossing the road, especially as the darker evenings approach.
Watch this space for exciting news about a project the school council are working on at the moment!
