Welcome to our new site

Our School Council

School Council representatives have a termly meeting to discuss lots of different things that are happening in our school. 

In our main school council meetings we have discussions on different issues, suggestions, thoughts and ideas on how to keep and make our school the best place to be. We have a very democratic school and take votes almost weekly to make improvements.

We have decided that each half term we are going to focus on different issues that will help us to become a respectful and kind citizen. 

Watch this space to see what we are getting up to.


We welcomed Sally from Bluebell Wood Hospice to school on Monday 11th February to talk to us about the work Bluebell Wood do to support children. It was a brilliant assembly where we learnt about the charity we are supporting.

Our next events are as follows: (Please be aware more details of when to bring in donations will follow after February half term)

Bunny Hop - £2

Pick a number - £1 (In class competition)

George's Paw - £1 Watch out at Coffee Mornings 

Mystery event - to be decided in our School Council Meeting on Thursday's.

School Council event: Friday 11th January - Purple Day for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice we have raised an amazing £192.40. 

Thank you for your very kind donations.

For our first whole school council assembly we were very excited to be discussing what fund raising events we want to host this year to raise money not only for school but for a charity.

This year our school has voted to support the Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice.

We are trying a new look school council for this Summer Term. We have 4 children from Class 6 who are called the Core 4. These were voted by the whole school. Their job is to lead the school council for the year. We have a Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary. 

School Council created a PowerPoint presentation about all the different charities we have supported as a school.  They showed it in our Collective Worship to the rest of the school and even sent it to our Multi Academy Trust who thanked School Council for their important work with charities. Please click here to view their presentation. 

Sponsored skip - School Council led a day of skipping called 'Jump Rope for Heart' to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.  Everyone had a fantastic day and we are in the process of collecting all the sponsor money in.

International Peace Day - School Council organised for everyone to come to school wearing green and make a donation to Greenpeace.  This day linked with our Christian Value 'Peace' as well as our 'Peacemakers'.  Thank you to everyone who contributed and the day made £157.25 for the charity.

Easter Egg Hunt - As part of our voting we decided that we would have an Easter Egg Hunt. We raised over £100 with a special raffle. It was a great morning with different classes taking part in the hunt together. Thank you Mrs Potton for helping us.
