The School Council at Leamington is made up of pupils from across KS2.
Y6 lead the council, with class representatives from all other KS2 classes.
Pupils from Y2 will be joining the council in the Summer term as a way of involving them in school life.
As a School Council, we meet weekly with an aim of increasing Pupil Voice and having a say in how the school is run. We are involved in many different projects in school to make a difference and help us on our continuing drive to be the 'best school in the universe'. We can be identified by our purple fleeces, different from the uniform from the rest of the school.
Currently, we are working with Chartwells, our catering firm, to have a say in the Summer term menu. We are helping to select the meals pupils like, make suggestions of how the menu can be improved and suggest 'special events' such as a Picnic Day menu.
In addition to this, we have created our own anti-bullying handbook for the school. We have discussed our definition of bullying, what children may need to know and how they can get help. We want this to be high profile in classrooms so that we know we have helped.
Pupils from across school help us by putting suggestions in our 'suggestion box' situated in Reception. We are also in the process of designing our own logo, so that when we write letters, we can ensure people know it is us.
Weekly, we host assemblies to teach the school about Fundamental Values and how to be a good citizen. We give out 'Council Coins' to pupils demonstrating the School Principles and these then go into a draw for a prize each week.
Phew- what a busy crew we are!
