School Council

IMG_0064

We are very proud of our school council at Willingdon Primary School.  We are a very active group who work alongside the class councils and the E-Safety Group.

We believe that if all children work together we can be a powerful influence on our community. We try to achieve little things that will make big things happen in order to make positive changes.

 

The class Councils meet every week (led by the council representatives) to discuss issues and areas for development taken from the minutes of the full school council. The full school council meets every week and the meetings are chaired by an elected chairperson of the group from years 1 to 6; we also have a vice chair. The minutes of each meeting are taken on a school iPad by the elected Secretary, who then distributes the minutes to each class.

School Council 2016 - 2017

Each year we find out how safe our children feel at school and we have found out how everyone enjoys school. We have also led some assemblies on friendship and safety, including E-Safety. We spend time looking at the needs of playgrounds and this helps us choose games equipment from the vouchers for Sainsbury’s catalogues for the playground. We have discussed ideas for our school motto and voted on the ones that each class liked the best:-  ‘Learning Together- Learning for Life.’

 

We feel proud that our school supports charities throughout the year and we discuss the favourite charities from each class and vote on the charities we would like to support each year. We always try to support Local, National and International charities.
