The School Council consists of two representatives from each year group, from Year 3 to Year 6. The Council meets every week to express views and make decisions. Staff are always keen to know the views of our pupils. For example, following curriculum themed days (Everybody Writes Day/Maths Morning), Miss Cooper met with the School Council to know more about what went well. Representatives of the School Council are very much active citizens. In addition to this, the School Council meets regularly with the Governors, sharing the pupils’ voice and their views on school life.
