Your new Pupil Council reps would like to say hello and welcome you to your new school year.
We have already been working hard and meeting to discuss your ideas and suggestions and will be sharing these regularly with you in class council meetings.
Firstly, we would like to share with you our aims and objectives for this new school year;
- To improve the school environment through work with the Eco-Team.
- To support all 'leaders' in classes, for example, Eco Leaders, Learning Leaders and Library Leaders.
- To think of new and exciting projects and ways to learn which will engage all learners.
- Encourage all pupils to make suggestions and come up with ideas to ensure that all the children have a voice.
- To promote Pupil Council around the school.
- To share ideas for promoting our school values and to support everyone to SPARKLE.
- To share important messages and ideas in assemblies and meetings.
- To consider resources which could be bought to help learning across the school but think about these carefully, with consideration of cost and budgets.
We look forward to letting you know about all the work we are doing and updating our website page as often as we can!
On Friday the 15th of June, Pupil Council attended Primary Parliament's summer session.
The theme was healthy, creative, you. We talked in groups about self-esteem and how it affects us.
We then, in our groups, went into Nottingham Market Square to take photos that related to body confidence, to use in a power point later in the day.
On returning to the Council House, we created a poster and a drama to present alongside our power point.
After lunch, the children had the opportunity to meet and talk with The Lord Mayor and the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Finally, the groups went into the Lord Mayor's chambers to present their power point, drama and posters to the other groups. As always, the children had an interesting and fun day.

On Wednesday 13th June Matt, who is the Building Project Manager for the school building works, came to join our Pupil Council meeting. Previously, the children had compiled some questions to ask him (from their classes) about the building works.
The children asked lots of questions and found out some useful information, which they then fed back to their classes.
The following week the children joined Matt in his meeting room, where they were shown plans of the completed building works and were again offered the opportunity to ask more questions.
