School Council

 

We value the opinions of our pupils and the School Council gives pupils a forum to share these opinions with each other in an effort to better the School and its community

A new school council is elected each year, with every class from Y1 to Y6 nominating representatives. These meet at least monthly, often weekly with Miss Gunnel and Mrs Kinderman.

Our trip to parliament

 

On Thursday 1st December the Year 5 and 6 School councillors and the Head boy and Girl, along with Mr Davies, Miss Gunnel and Mrs Kinderman went to the Houses of Parliament. We were accompanied by pupils from Shardlow Primary School and Sawley Junior School.

 

When we arrived we had a walk around the outskirts of Westminster and Westminster Bridge where we met Father Christmas who asked us what our school Christmas wish would be. We asked for better reading resources within school.

 

After this we went to watch debates within the House of Lords and the House of Commons, it was super exciting and Miss Gunnel tried to hide so she could stay to watch the Prime Minister’s Questions (in a weeks’ time)

 

After the debate we had a final tour around the grounds of Westminster and then headed home on the coach. We stopped at a Service Area on the way back and the children enjoyed a McDonalds, which some claimed was the best bit of the day!

 

It was a fantastic day and we look forward to visiting again soon.
