We have an active School Council at Warden Hill Primary School which consists of one child to represent each class.
Elections are held at the start of each term (in September, January and after Easter). Children who choose to stand for election, make a brief speech or presentation to their class and then the children vote for the person they would like to represent their class for that term. Having an election each term means more children can have a turn at being a part of the School Council if they wish to.
The School Council meet with a variety of stakeholders, including Governors, Headteacher but meet regularly with Mrs Bloomfield to discuss a variety of school issues. In the past we have raised money to purchase playground games, organised energy saving initiatives and chosen themes for non-uniform days.
Spring Term 2021 Focus:
Our School Council members, who were newly elected prior to lockdown, will be meeting imminently and selecting their new focus areas for this term. We will also be supplementing our current school council body with another newly elected member from each class who will team up with the existing school council member. We are looking forward to seeing what goes onto their agenda for the summer term.
Some possible agenda items for them to consider are: ‘The Big Pedal’, ‘What is a healthy street?’ (part of school streets), and charity fundraising.
