School Council

"Pupils have good opportunities to take responsibility, such as on the school council"

- Ofsted 2015

Meetings

 

Wednesday 7th November 2019

 

Meeting Agenda:

  • Welcome Mrs Lowndes and Mrs Duce to their meeting.
  • Improvement of Play Times.

 

After reviewing the 'School Behaviour Policy', the council members have come up with some statements they think would be beneficial to display around the school to ensure all pupils understand them:

 

  • Be where grown ups can see you
  • Take responsibility for your actions
  • Be honest
  • Respect the equipment
  • Kindness is important
  • Play sensibly - play safely
  • Be aware of everyone on the playground
  • Respect each other - children and adults

 

The children were asked to choose a game the class would like for the wet break cupboard as a gift from the PTA.They also were given a mission to go home and talk to adults about the games they used to play on the playground for fresh new ideas for the Short Wood playground. 

 

It was agreed that the council would reintroduce the role of a newly trained 'Playground Leader' to operate on rota system. Council captains are going to create adverts for Year 5 and 6 pupils to apply for the role. The results were in and 'Ethan' was elected Play Leader.

 

The School Council reviewed the creative curriculum, with particular reference to the impact of the 'Calm Brain' initiative throughout school. Feelings were strong and enthusiastic for this part of the curriculum.

Meeting Agenda:

  • School Council Captains
  • Representing Short Wood at The Remembrance Parade.
  • Ideas for Future Meetings

 

Many members of the school council decided to stand for captain. Each candidate spoke about why they would fit the role well. A vote was held and results were announced in our 'Golden Leaf' assembly.

 

It was agreed members would take a letter home about taking part in the Remembrance Parade in Wellington this year to see who could attend.

 

A number of ideas were forthcoming for future meetings; How expectations and rules are displayed on the playground and in the dinner hall, Introducing play leaders and brighter minds mentors and a review of student anti-bullying and behaviour policies in school.
