What does our school council do?


Our school council is a formal group of pupils who act as representatives of their classmates in discussing school issues with the headteacher and staff. It’s a brilliant way of representing and contributing to Pupil Voice in our school. Students are elected to represent the views of all pupils and also to improve their school. They help to make decisions about how the school is run and take on projects that support the children’s learning and development, such as organising charity events, representing the school at outside events or ensuring the school is environmentally friendly. Our school counsellors are elected annually by the other children. Our school council does a number of things:

  • The school council usually meets with a teacher present to discuss and sort out problems. These could include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
  • Members of the school council are responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed upon, such as planning discos, writing newspaper articles, or meeting with catering staff.
  • Each year, every class will normally elect two representatives to be members of the school council. The council will then meet to elect officers such as Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.

The next school council elections will take place in the Autumn Term of 2021.

Thank you everybody for your wonderful and generous donations! Thanks to Severn Trent Water, we have had an amazing visit from them to explain how our donations will fund a  project in India.

All the children were given a challenge to create posters that will educate children  and adults about sanitation.  Here are some photos of the Severn Trent visit!

Go Blue for Water Aid and Dum Dum


On Friday 25th of May, we will be holding a 'Go Blue' non-uniform day to raise money for our link school in Kolkata and Water Aid - an organisation that provides water , sanitation and hygiene  in less developed countries.  We ask that each individual pupil brings in  a £1 minimum donation to wear blue for the day. 


Visitors from Severn Trent will be coming into school to describe the work they do for Water Aid  in India and  to explain where and how our donations will be used. 


Thank you as always for your continued support. smiley

Parliament Week - 16.11.17

Toby, Leah and Lily joined Mrs Rowles on an important trip to Derby Cathedral as part of Parliament Week.  The main focus was on climate change and pollution.  During the visit we: joined in a debate, chaired by the Mayor of Derby; we listened to a professor discuss the danger to the world's coral reefs; we worked with Rolls Royce engineers to build a replica turbine and we learned about modern slavery and its impact on climate change. Take a look at our exciting photos that we took throughout the experience.smiley
