School Council

St Margaret's CofE Primary, school council representatives are elected at the start of the term. Our children fill out an application and then complete a short presentation to their class that explains why they want to be a school council rep and the attributes they have which they feel make them a good candidate for the role. The class then take a vote to select their rep. 
 
 
 

 

The school council have worked with children across the school recently to identify areas that they want to work on. They thought carefully with their class about our three school expectations. 
Be Ready
Be Respectful
Be Safe
 
Each class produced posters that had information and images that showed what we would see if our children were demonstrating being ready, respectful and safe. The council reps then came together and selected elements from each class that went onto the final playground signs. Our children now know the expectations and how they can demonstrate them daily. 
 

 

Last term the council reps gathered information about what they thought was working well at St Margarets and what they felt could be improved. One of their requests was to have additional after school clubs. The school responded to this and the children were able to participate in Art and multi-skills clubs during the year. There are plans for more to come so watch this space. 
 
The school council reps also worked with members of staff to help our children develop an anti-bullying policy using their opinions. Staff refer to this with the children in school.  

The children have been working with their class to develop regulation boxes. They asked their class what they would like to have in the boxes and we are putting these together. This is what we have so far.
