School Council

What is a school council?

At the beginning of each new school year, two children from each class are voted as school councillors. Their job involves being the ‘voices’ for our class. They attend school council meetings where they can share their ideas and decide how to use them to make our school a better place!


What do we do?

We represent the views and opinions of our classes. We each have a special job within the school council team. This is because we each have a role to play in carrying out the ideas we talk about!

At our meetings we have chance to sort out problems and ideas. This term we have focused on how we can improve our play times.

We are currently working together to fundraise for our Outdoor Area.


Autumn term updates:

Our First Donation!

Big thanks to the Bideford Rotary Club for their kind donation of £500 towards our Outside Area Project.  We have started to research materials to begin the work.

Our new School Council members for this year have had their first meeting. We organised our roles within the Council and welcomed everyone to the committee. We decided that that this year we would like to continue the good work from last year's School Council in developing the Outdoor Area. Some of us have the task of writing a summary of what we would like to do in the Outdoor Area to use to apply for funding to buy materials; others are the photographers of the group, taking pictures of the new team. the last few meetings we have been discussing our new project of revamping the 'old quiet area'. Each member went back to their class and asked their peers what they thought the area should be turned into. 

We have applied to the Aviva Communities Fund and been in contact with our local B and Q - we may need your votes online soon! Any parents or family member that have expertise or resources that could help towards the project are greatly appreciated.
