School councillors are elected by the peers after presenting reasons why they believe they will represent the children well. The children have an assembly where last year's school councillors explain the role and what is involved.
School Council Produce Anti-Bullying Policy for Children
In the last few weeks before handing over to new councillors, our School Council have finalised their child-friendly anti-bullying policy. It will be distributed to each class and promoted in an assembly during Anti-Bullying Week in November.
Mr Dyer met with our School Council today (January 31st) to discuss changes to our praise and reward systems. This is a result of meetings in every classroom about what we value as rewards. News of adjustments to our Dojo and Students of the Week systems will be sent out very soon!

Our School Council
Councillors met with Mr Dyer to discuss what they think are the strengths of the school and the areas for development. Our Year 4 team agreed that the children enjoy engaging lessons and a varied curriculum, but think we can all work harder to keep communal areas like libraries and cloakrooms tidy.
The Council also contributed to the school's new Playtime Rules, holding meetings with their own classes to discuss the successes and areas for improvement. They presented their findings to Mr Dyer, Mrs Cranmer and Ms Russell, and agreed actions.
