Our new School Council Team for 2020
We want all our children to be active, conscious and democratic in our school community so we have a school council that involves every child and adult. This year children who felt they had the qualities to be an effective school councillor wrote an application. These applications were read by all the class teachers and two children from each class were chosen on the strength of their application. We also kept the School Councillors from the last academic year so that they could bring the skills and knowledge they had gained last year to the new team this year.
Currently we have 7 school councillors, Year R will become more involved after Christmas. Our school councillors are:
KS2-George,Gabriel and Imogen KS1-Tom and Georgina
The children write the Agenda and lead the meetings. Our current project is working on our VIPs-Vernham's Inspirational Pupils and deciding on when identified as a VIP what privileges these pupils should have for the week.
In valuing pupil voice, we offer our children the chance to evaluate our school and curriculum so they can evaluate what we do well and the things they would like to change.
