Following class elections, where KS2 candidates gave a short presentation to their class on why they should be elected on to the School Council, two members from each year group (a boy and a girl) were elected via a secret ballot.
The Head Boy and Head Girl also attend the School Council meetings and during the year will take on the role of Chairing these meetings. This year’s School Council members are to be decided in the first few weeks of the new school year.
As a School Council, we are here to listen and help out with any problems. Before a meeting, we will ask our class if there is anything they want us to bring up. Then we will talk about it at the meeting and then tell you if we could do anything about it.
How does the School Council work?
Each class has two Council members, a boy and a girl. Although the Reception and Year 1 children are very young, the older members of the council support and encourage them to join in our lively discussions.
When and where are the meetings?
The school council meets every few weeks. Mr Jervis sets the meeting times which are held in the Staffroom.
How can I have my say?
If you would like to bring something to the attention of the school council you can either tell your class Council Members or write it down on a piece of paper and put it in the suggestions box in your classroom.
Before each meeting, our Council Members will check the suggestion boxes and bring any pieces of paper to the meeting.
Last year, the council were looking at issues affecting the children on the playground including zoning and lunchtime activities. They also organised Buglawton's Got Talent, books in a jar for World Book Day and lots of other exciting projects.
How can I find out what happened at the meeting?
Sometimes the class reps will find time to talk to your class as a whole after the meetings to tell you about important issues.
At other times the whole School Council may talk to you in assembly.
You can also read the minutes of the School Council meetings by looking on the School Council noticeboard in the corridor outside the Year 5 classroom.
Our School Council have a voice and they are making a difference to our school.
Head Boy and Girl
From September 2019, our Head Boy is Thomas Bidgood and our Head Girl is Leah Mawby. They were voted into their roles through a whole school ballot and were clear winners! They represent the school in different ways and are role models to the other children. Their duties include showing visitors around our school, modelling outstanding behaviour around school, representing the school and speaking at school events. They also have the important job of chairing School Council meetings and meeting with the Headteacher each half term to discuss important issues.
