School Council

The School Council is a group of pupils who act as a link between staff and children. Their role is to put forward ideas of how we can improve our school , such as raising money for new playground equipment or suggesting after school clubs. We feel it is important that all children have a voice in our school.

Every September we hold elections to vote for a new School Council. Pupils are invited to write a short statement about themselves which they read out in a special assembly. Everyone in school votes for 2 pupils from each class who are then elected and given badges. They attend fortnightly meetings with a member of staff and two pupils attend SKIP meetings every term. SKIP is the School Council for the Southerly Point  Co-operative Trust .

We are pleased to anounce our new School Council representatives are Anya, Callum, Imogen, Sennen, Seth and Beatrice.  So far this term we have written letters to our sponsored child in Myanmar (Burma) , researched and produced a progress chart for the notice board, discussed ideas for after school clubs and are currently looking at fund raising ideas for next term.
