Patcham Infant School has a School Council currently made up of 2 children from each Year 1 and Year 2 class.
If you are interested you have to tell everyone why you would like to be on the School Council...
IS THIS YOU?
- Are you a good listener?
- Do you have good ideas?
- Can you take turns?
- Can you talk confidently in front of grown ups and children?
- Are you caring and kind?
- Can you put across your opinions clearly?
If so, then you could be a representative for your class on the School Council.
The class vote for one child they want to represent them on School Council. Then the class teacher chooses a second child.
School Council meet at least twice each half term.
The children come to meetings and discuss lots of different ideas and issues.
Often they have to go back to class and ask their class for their ideas too.
Some of the issues they have looked at and discussed so far this year are:
- Community Cohesion: How can we make links with elderly people in the local area?
- School Improvement Plan: How can we make everyone aware of the main points?
- Lunch times: How can we improve lunchtimes and encourage children to bring a healthy lunch?
- Eco Week: How can we work together with Patcham Junior School.
School Council Members
Twelve School Councillors have been elected (two from each Key Stage 1 class) and the post will be for the duration of 2017-18. Reception children will be elected in February 2018 for the remainder of the year.
At each meeting we start by talking about our achievements since the last meeting.
Come and have a look at the photographs on the School Council notice board to see who we are and what we get up to!
