School Council Activity
School Council have been busy working on a number of things this year. They have worked on our playground Code of Conduct, and have agreed it as follows:
- Play kindly and gently
- Look after all equipment
- Everyone should be included
- Be respectful to everyone
- Take care of those around you.
The School Council have shared this Code of Conduct with the whole school during an assembly, and are working on ways to display this in the playground.
Some members of the School Council have also been helping Mrs Sweet make some decisions about playground equipment.
At our last School Council meeting, a vote was held on whether or not we should keep the children's contribution to their school reports. The vote was unanimous - the children like writing their contribution and feel it is an important part of the information that their parents receive at the end of the year. The Council decided on the format of the report and this was then passed back to the teachers and prepared ready for report writing time.
I will write another update later on in the school year, and would like to thanks our amazing School Council for the work they have done so far.
The School Council is an elected group of pupils from across the school. They are democratically elected by their class mates.
They meet regularly and have an important role in putting across the pupil voice in decisions we make.
This year the School Council will be involved in a number of areas, news of which will appear on this page.
I am very pleased to announce the names of our School Councillors for 2016 - 17.

WeCAN School Councils' Learning Walk
On Tuesday 12th January 2016, School Councils from across our WeCAN collaboration got together at Castle Batch to undertake a 'learning walk'. They worked in small groups, visiting every classroom, looking at learning in mathematics. They observed some teaching, looked at displays and books, and talked to children. They fed back to us all of things they thought were good, and some questions that they had about what they had seen. These things have been discussed with staff and will form part of our improvement work in maths.
The children did an extremely professional job and took to the task very well indeed. They impressed all of the adults who worked with them.
We hope to do more work like this in the very near future.
