What did the 2016-17 Council Achieve in our School?
September meetings- Election of council, meet and greet sessions, discussions regarding purpose, role and responsibility of an active school council.
October meetings- Agreed on a School Council Contract and signed this. Discussed and identified the essential qualities of a councillor and the desirable ones. Council reviewed current systems and motivational rewards to celebrate good attendance. Considered the suggestion that individuals should be rewarded, as opposed to the winning class as a whole. This was discussed, agreed and actioned. Those individuals who achieved 100% attendance over a half term are now invited to come in non-uniform for a day during the last week of term.
November meetings- Council members researched this year’s Children in Need theme and consulted classes on ideas of what we could do to raise money for this cause. Council decided that wearing bright and /or spotty clothes for the day seemed to be a real hit with the majority of pupils so this was agreed upon.
Anti-bullying week – Council worked collaboratively to create a PowerPoint presentation to deliver to the whole school during the week. The presentation raised awareness of these themes and acted as a starting point from which classes and groups could base their work and discussions on.
December meetings- Council reviewed pupil questionnaires and then consulted classes to check their understanding of the questions. Questionnaires were then distributed to classes by councillors.
January meetings- Our next step is to focus on pupil questionnaires and outcomes , taking pupil voice forward.
