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.
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.
