First School Council Meeting


Children were welcomed to the meeting and congratulated for being elected as class representatives.  Children were given 'School Council' identity badges.

Mrs Corrigan shared the aims and objectives for the school council and the children elected their Chairperson.

Mrs Corrigan suggested some actions which the group could begin working on and the children agreed that their first actions would be:

  1. An assembly to introduce themselves and their roles to the school
  2. To organise a pupil questionnaire to gather the views of all children in school.

At the end of the meeting Mrs Corrigan informed the children that they would be visiting London in May to have a tour of Parliament and go on the London Eye.  The children were VERY excited!

School Council Assembly

The Chair Person worked closely with the other School Councillors and Mrs Corrigan to plan a whole school assembly to introduce the members and their initial work plans.

They invited all of the children to participate in a 'pupil questionnaire' to enable them to analyse views and plan improvements for our school.

Pupil Questionnaire

The views of our key stage 2 children have been collected to enable the school council to identify areas for development in our school which they can have a positive impact on.

General Election - 7th May 2015 - Educational Visit to London

Today the School Councillors and Anti-Bullying Ambassadors went on a visit to London.  During the day the children had a tour of Parliament, participated in a workshop about 'Elections and Voting'  (electing the 'Purple People Eater Party and electing our Primary Minister) and went on the London Eye.  This visit on such an important day really demonstrated the role of the Government to the children and how they are elected.  A fantastic day!
