Welcome to the School Council section of the website.
In this section we hope tell you a bit about the school council and update you on any events that we run throughout the year.
Who is in the school council?
Year Two- Nell and Lucas. Year Three- Gabriel and Lucy. Year Four- James and Beth Year Five- Lydia and Charlie. Year Six- Jasmine, Ellen and Ralphie.
What is the school council?
Two children from year groups 2-6 come together to form the school council. The school council represent the voice of the pupils and are responsible for raising concerns of their peers. The school council, who are supported by Mr Elliot, then make decisions to act on the issues raised.
What do we do?
The school council organise events to raise money for the school charity. They have fortnightly meetings with their class and pass on any suggestions to relevant staff members. There have suggestions boxes and worry boxes in every classroom which the school council monitor regularly.
When do we meet?
The school council meet with Mr Elliot fortnightly on a Thursday at 12.40pm in the Quad. They meet for 20 minutes.

Children in Need
On Friday, 16th November our School Council organised a non - uniform day, cake sale and
name the bear competition to raise vital funds for the BBC Children in Need appeal. As ever, our School community has gone above and beyond to support those in need and enable a great charity like Children in Need to continue its outstanding work in the UK. With donations from non-uniform, name the bear and the cake stall we raised a total of £351.11! Thank you to everyone who donated and the school council for running such a fantastic event.
Children’s Heart Surgery Fund
On Tuesday, we were visited by Lisa Williams from the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund (CHSF) which is one of our two school charities for this academic year. The donations that we have made so far have been very gratefully received and Lisa got in to touch to ask if she could come in to school to personally thank all of the children and to talk to them about how the money they raise is being used. They were shown video clips of young children who had required heart surgery and how CHSF provide medals, teddies and books for them as a reward for their positivity and courage. The money raised by school helps to support the purchase of these items for many, many children across Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire. Lisa brought the charity’s mascot – Katie Bear – with her to meet the children and the School Council presented CHSF with a cheque for £494.41. Thank you everyone for your incredible support!
