At Slip End Village School, our pupils are given a voice and make contributions towards how the school is run. The School Council plays a very important role in this.
Near the beginning of every academic year, each class in Years 1 to 6 vote for two pupils, a boy and a girl, who they believe are good role models and would represent the school well. These children then form the school council.
At the first school council meeting, the chair (Jack) and vice chair (Lily) were appointed and the pupils were asked to set up suggestion boxes for each of their classes; these boxes will be brought along to each school council meeting where pupils’ ideas and thoughts will be discussed.
Every year, the school council run the ‘Children in Need’ day at school; this is always hugely successful. The pupils are already putting on their thinking hats in preparation for this year’s event on Friday 18th November.
We wish our pupils all the very best in their roles and look forward to receiving their input as the year progresses.
|If your child has a suggestion or comment about school life, please encourage them to raise it with their School Council member.|
