Our School Council is led by school councillors representing their class and overseen by Mrs Leah Sallows and supported by Mrs Gail Cox (Governor) and Mrs Sarah Ridout. It aims to ensure that every child has a voice and feels that they can contribute to making Culverstone Green Primary School the caring, creative environment every child can be confident in. Every academic year, two pupils are elected by their classmates to represent their class on the school council.
The school council meets once a month to discuss any matters that are of interest or concern to the children and the school councillors are encouraged to set the agenda by consultation with their classmates. Our School Council has raised and addressed a number of considerations recently, including:
- Working with the PTA to fulfil requests for more playtime equipment
- Acquisition of more headphones for use with the school computers.
- A discussion and review of four-square.
- Addressing requests for ketchup to be allowed at lunchtime with the catering company.
With our fabulous new building, so far this year, the children have been keen to explore and talk about their wonderful new learning environment and have planned ways to maintain the profile of the School Council in our new premises. The children are also preparing for the up and coming elections in which new candidates will be chosen for each class. In doing so, we have also discussed Democracy, an aspect of our British Values learning.
