What have the 2017-18 Council Achieved 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 discussed the new playground equipment and monitored its use. Councillors continued to monitor during lunch times and invited peers feedback. The overall opinion and impact was very positive in creating harmonious, fulfilled playtimes.
November meetings- Monitoring of playground equipment continued and a short report was given to the head teacher. Council decided that Year 6 monitors would be beneficial in helping to store equipment correctly. Council members set to work drawing up a Playground Equipment Monitor’s Rota.
December meetings- Anti-bullying week (to take place in Feb 2018) was discussed – Council worked collaboratively to think of exciting classroom activities to promote this theme. Lists of ideas were handed out to classes.
January meetings- Council reviewed pupil questionnaires and then amended questionnaires were completed by classes. Councillors then unpicked outcomes and data from these questionnaires and decided to consult certain classes to check their understanding of the questions and explain their thoughts further.
Our next step is to continue to focus on pupil questionnaires and outcomes, taking pupil voice forward.
