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 develop the EYFS outside area and to introduce more areas of shade.
The RE School Council work alongside the School Council, and are coordinated by Mrs Kluge. The RE School Council regularly meet with Father Louis, our Chaplain to discuss issues and plan events.
