Mrs Carlisle our Deputy Headteacher leads the School Council.
They meet each week usually on a Friday at 1pm. Each class from year 2 to year 6 has an election at the start of the school year to vote for their class representative.
During the year, the children discuss many of the issues that arise in school and try to find solutions to them. This year we are going look at the following things:
- Check the travel plan details (add parent letter bits & pieces)
- Order fluorescent clothing/negotiate GBSA
- Promote walking
- Help to organise walking bus
- Walking Bus – we need parent volunteers to organise and take responsibility for its daily running
- Strategies to encourage walking/park and walk
- Stopping parents parking in the disabled bay
- Displays – Be a Health Detective; Parking safely
- A walking challenge? School & community (local resources, the environment)
- Encourage a healthy lifestyle with weekly 10 minute runs
- Competition for a walk to school logo and trainer design

The new play equipment was constructed and ready for use in June 2015 and everyone is enjoying using it.
We made a Powerpoint presentation about the new Play equipment:
