School Council

The school council plays an important role in the life of our school.

Here you will find information on our school council activity.

Make Your Mark Campaign

Over the last couple of weeks, the School Council have been organising a polling station in for school as part of the Make Your Mark campaign. This campaign, which is organised by UK Youth Parliament, aims to empower all children by giving them a say in the things that are important to them. The school council therefore organised an afternoon where all pupils in KS2 had the chance to vote on which topic is most important to them. The results from this have then been sent off to be collated as part of a national vote which will then inform future work of the Youth Parliament. This was a great opportunity for the School Council to get to grips with how polling stations and ballots work and gave the KS2 children a flavour of what voting at a polling station is like. The children created posters, stood in front of classes to read out instructions, organised a register and set up the library for this event. It was a huge success and something we hope to build on in the future.

Children's Mental Health Week

To mark Children's Mental Health Week, the school council have taken the focus of 'Make Your Voice Heard' by creating a survey for all children to complete which can then be used to create some next steps for staff and school councillors to improve the mental health of all our pupils. Additionally, they ahve come up with some exciting new ways to support their peers top look after their mental health. We hope to introduce these over the coming weeks and months. 


Voicebox Spring Term

Today our school council took part in Voicebox led by Manchester Healthy Schools. We worked alongside other schools to discuss upcoming events and how we can mark them in our school. We spent time thinking about our mental health and what we can do to promote positive mental health. We learnt about happiness and how we can fill our school with even more happiness. In addition, we completed some activities on inclusion and inspiration. Finally, we looked at the upcoming events of International Women's Day, Children's Mental Health Week and International Day of Happiness. 

We will now come together over the coming weeks to think about how we lead mount school in celebrating these specialdays/weeks. 

Road Safety Week

In order to support our pupils awareness of road safety, we have been working hard over the last few weeks to produce posters and presentations to be shared with the classes across the school. We have also created our own video for parents to ask them to be mindful where they park when dropping off and picking up outside school. We're really proud of our video and we hope it will have a huge impact on the safety of our peers. Please click the link below.
