We currently have two school councils, an Eco Council and a Wellbeing Committee. They both represents the whole school.

Our Eco Council and Wellbeing Committee aim to ensure our children have

  • A safe, happy and fair learning environment
  • A forum to voice their concerns and act upon them
  • A structured opportunity to learn problem-solving skills
  • An opportunity to take an active role in the organisation of the school
  • An opportunity to experience a democratic process

Our Eco Council and Wellbeing Committee encourages pupils to develop

  • A sense of ownership over policy and practice
  • A consensus over school issues
  • A responsibility towards the school community and environment

Our Eco Council and Wellbeing Committee should give pupils the experience of

  • Planning, organising and monitoring projects
  • Speaking and listening skills
  • Debating skills
  • Mediation and negotiating skills
  • Basic budgeting and managing money

Our Eco Council and Wellbeing Committee aims to prepare our pupils for citizenship by teaching them about roles, rights and responsibilities within the school system.

Elections (for Eco Council)

Class elections will be held every year so that different representatives can put forward their election speeches as well as developing the full potential of the Eco Council to complete tasks.  Two candidates are elected from each year group.

Giving Feedback to Pupils

Following the Eco Council and Wellbeing Committee meetings, members speak to their class to let them know what is going on and tell the class about the issues being discussed and what is happening next.  This will encourage more children to contribute to further meetings, share worries and let members know the things which could be done to improve the school.  The school will record the achievement on the website and school newsletter as and when appropriate.

Our Eco Council and Wellbeing Committee are made up of two representatives from each year group from Year 1 to Year 6. The purpose of the School Council is to gather new ideas by consulting classes on things that will affect them in school e.g. events such as raising money for charity, improving our wellbeing and making the school environment even better.
