School Council – Infant

The school’s council is made up of children from across the year groups and a teacher. There is a chairperson, a treasurer and a secretary as well as two elected representatives from each class.

They meet once a fortnight to discuss issues raised in their class council meetings. The children have worked hard with this and many of their ideas have been implemented in school already. We always look forward to their next recommendations.

The children are consulted on important school decisions, conduct class discussions, vote on issues important to them, and have even interviewed candidates for teaching posts in the past.

Voting for Lunchtime Clubs

The School Council have been busy this half term discussing lunchtime clubs. It was decided that the children should have the final say into the types of clubs that they would like the teachers to run over the coming year. Each class council representative led a discussion in their classroom to create lists of the most popular choices and brought them back to the follow up meeting. As a council we looked through the lists and narrowed them down to 10 choices, discussing the practicalities of each club and who would be best to run them. The council were then given six voting counters each and asked to vote on their favourite. This year’s favourite clubs are:

Christmas Club     Lego Club     Science Club     Superhero Club       First Aid Club       Dinosaur Club

The teachers will be running various sports clubs throughout the year to coincide with trips and events. A group of Year 6 pupils are also organising an Art and Games club to run for the infant children.

Year 2 Hustings

At the beginning of the Autumn Term Year 2 were very busy taking part in their Hustings and friendship week. A chairperson, treasurer and secretary needed to be elected to run the School Council for the coming year. Two candidates for each position were put forward from each Year 2 class. During the week their supporters created rosettes and banners to use during the candidate’s final speech to the children. All the children were asked to vote for their preferred candidate.
