Our School Council & RE School Council
The School Council is elected by fellow pupils. Each class from Year 2 to Year 6 has a representative, each Council serves for one year, with a new Council being elected every September.
The School Council support Mr Melia by making sure the views of the children are heard when important decisions are made.
The School Council have regular meetings, and also organise special events.
A current issue for the School Council is to help Mr Melia and the Governors to name the new classes for September 2017.
The RE School Council work alongside the School Council, and are coordinated by Miss Rickards. The RE School Council regularly meet with Father Chris, our Chaplain to discuss issues and plan events.
An impact Report from the 2014/15 School Council can be found as an attachment below. For the current School Council, who meet once a fortnight with either Mr Melia or Miss Ballard, our aims for the year ahead are as follows:
