School Council Voice 

Welcome to the School Council page

 The school councillors have decided they would like to run a club every Thursday lunchtime so it allows the children that don't like playtimes to come in and to socialise with other children.

Thursday 3rd March - construction club

Thursday 10th March - singing club

Thursday 17th March - storytelling club

Suggestions box

The school councillors have also made a suggestions box in the corridor near Year 3 and 4. If you have any ideas or suggestions to try and change the school in a sensible way then please let us know and post it in the suggestions box.


We have discussed a variety of new golden time activities and this will be shared with teachers for the summer term.
