Our Opening Ceremony!


On Friday 13th of October 2023 our school council representatives welcomed guests to our school for our grand opening ceremony! They greeted our guests in the school hall before our whole school collective worship. The school council then attended the cutting of the ribbon and blessing ceremony at the front of our school with our guests. The school council then gave our guests a fantastic tour of the new parts of our school. After the tours, they served our guests refreshments of drinks and nibbles in the school hall. Thank you to the school council for your support with our opening ceremony. 


School Council Meeting - 6.11.23


In our meeting today we discussed why we wanted to be class representatives for the school council. We thought about the following questions:

Why do I want to be a member of the school council?

What would I like to do as a member of the school council this year?

What can we do together to make our school even better?


The children thought of lots of ideas and had a good discussion with their peers. They are now going to ask their own classes for further ideas of how we can make our school even better.

15.1.24 - School Council Meeting


After collecting pupil views of how to make our school better, the school council have decided to focus their attention on wet play times to begin with, but we need your help!


Do you have any toys at home that you no longer play with and would like to donate so that we can use them at school?


We are looking for:


  • Board games - please only donate games that do not take too long to play, have all the pieces, are age appropriate and are fun! 
  • Card games
  • Puzzles - again please make sure there are no lost puzzles pieces.



If you have something you would like to donate. Please give your donations to the school office, your class representative or Mrs Baker in Ducklings class. 

28.1.24 & 16.2.24


Thank you to Jack, Teddy and Harry who all designed and made posters for the school newsletter on behalf of the school council.


25.3.24 - Donations for wet play toys and games


Thank you to everyone who gave donations of games and puzzles for us to add to our wet play toys and games. Today the school council enjoyed sorting out the donations by playing the games and puzzles given and deciding which year groups and classes the games would be best for. 

School Council Meeting - 10.6.24


Today our school council representatives met to discuss updates and the term ahead.


To promote pupil involvement, we have made a poster for each class so that all pupils can easily express their ideas, concerns and problems to their school council team. Our council representatives are going to explain to their classes how they can add ideas for the school council to discuss in further meetings.
