School Council Minutes - 5th May 2018

All present

School Council representatives have been asked to remind children about collecting sponsor money from Jump Rope for Heart. A letter has also gone out today. The quicker we collect sponsor money, the quicker children receive their certificates. Some children have raised incredible amounts. However, any amount would be greatly appreciated.

Additionally, children have been asked to remind their class about suggesting a theme for the lunch, on the last day of half term. Thank you to Heron class, Fox, Chamber and Reception for already doing this.

Children have suggested maybe having a week of culture, trying different foods. Mrs Lawson will speak to Lisa.

School Council Meeting - 20th April 2018

All present

  • This week we discusssed the Jump Rope for Heart event, which we will be participating in during the last week of half term, to help raise money for The British Heart Foundation.
  • A letter will be going out this week to parents informing them of the event, along with sponsor forms for the children to complete.
  • If each class teacher can please plan their PE lesson that week around an activity that involves skipping, to enable the children to complete the Jump Off and start collecting in their sponsor money.
  • I will leave the skipping ropes in the PE cupboard. Additionally, I have skipping activity cards if anyone wants ideas along with a CD Manual, which arrived yeaterday. Obviously, there is only one CD. Therefore, if you want to get an idea now- that would be great, than everyone wanting the CD the last week. Furthermore, we will be wearing red for a voluntary contribution of £1. A letter will be sent out nearer the time.

School Council Meeting - 6th March 2018

All present

  • School Council Representatives will be coming round each day to sell raffle tickets for the Fairtrade hamper. This is to help drive awareness of the issues of unfair trade. Each raffle ticket will cost 50p. If any staff would like to donate a Fairtrade item to make another hamper that would be great.
  • We have also discussed The Jump Rope for Heart, which will take place the last week before may half-term. Children will be sent home with sponsor forms nearer the time and each class will be asked to do the activities during PE. This is to support The British Heart Foundation.

Buddies for the friendship bench have been reminded of their role.

School Council Meeting - 22nd January 2018

  • Thank you to all School Councillors for asking their individual classes how they would like to design the friendship bench. Children have come up with some really good phrases too! Buddies have already been chosen for when it is up and running. Ideas to be passed onto Mrs Crompton.
  • Suggestions this week:
  • We help raise money for the British Heart Foundation. Mrs Lawson has sent off for a fundraising pack.
  • Children are asking for more Art, as places in Art Club are limited.

Additionally, children have been asked to start thinking how we can raise money for school funds at Easter.

School Council Meeting - 11th December 2017

All present (except Brook Class) who were performing their nativity.

All the suggestions from each class have been given to Mrs Crompton with regards to extra equipment/resources in the school yard.

Year 6 have asked for some wet play resources. Their class representatives will feed back to the class.

Children have asked for sauces with their school dinners. Hassan J has been given the responsibility of proposing this to Lisa in the kitchen.

It has been suggested that a friendship bench can be set up in the playground, where if a child has no one to play with they can go and sit on this bench. We were thinking of then having friendship buddies, who will monitor the bench at lunch and if they notice anyone alone, they can find them a friend. Mrs Lawson will arrange this.

School Council Meeting - 13th November 2017

All Present

  • A letter has been sent out to parents asking for a £1 contribution fro non-uniform, to help raise money for Children in Need, which takes place on Friday. The children can wear anything that consists of spots.

Suggestions to take forward:

  • Children are saying that the fruit trolley is being removed really quickly. Therefore, if some classes are later going out at break, they dont get their fruit. Mrs Lawson is to find out who is rsponsible for the trolley and hopefully resolve the problem.
  • The girls' football team are asking if they can have a separate kit from the boys. Mr.Turner is this possible?
  • School Councillors have been asked to promote sensible suggestions within their class that will improve the school.
