School Council


The school council is made up of pupils from across the school who meet regularly to talk about any problems they or their peers might have in school. With the help of teachers and school staff they aim to find solutions to these problems to help support everyone's learning in school.  Over the past three years, school council have been given the task to improve the school in some way.  They discuss with class friends early in the year and feedback to staff and governors their ideas and improvements.  Every year the council set themselves a real challenge!  This years project is: Project Playground.
