Our Mission Statement:
To protect and preserve our natural environment, as well as to raise the awareness of how to protect and preserve for the rest of the school to follow suit.
Our School Council represents the views of all of our pupils.
Our School Council gives our children the opportunity to make their voices heard, and feel like a part of the whole school community.
We have regular meetings to think about how we can bring a positive change to the school. We discuss how current policies are doing, whether they are working, as well as by thinking of new, exciting ideas to bring to the school environment.
We promote an ethos of taking responsibility for our day-to-day schooling lives, however big or small.
Macmillan Coffee Morning
We are really excited to be holding our first School Council event for this academic year. We are going to be participating in the Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday 2nd October.
Outlined below is how our event will run:
- Each child will bring in one cupcake for themselves (no nuts allowed at all).
- Each child will bring in a donation for Macmillan.
- Each class will enjoy their cakes together at 2:45 in their own classes whilst watching a video relevant to the cause.
- School council representatives will collect the donations.
- Photographs of the event will be taken
We are looking forward to seeing all your bakes! Check back to see photographs soon!
Macmillan Coffee Event
We had an amazing Macmillan Coffee Afternoon! Everyone really enjoyed their cakes and we learned about the importance of the Macmillan charity and the great work they do.
We are so pleased to let you all know that we raised a fantastic £540.52! We should all be really proud of ourselves!
Community Badge Award
We are really excited to announce our next project for the year. We are going to be working with our local and wider community to help all walks of life. As our theme of this term is 'Friendship', we are really keen to drive that forward in as many ways as we can. Therefore, we are going to be starting at home and working our way out in a variety of different activities to show our engagement in the community. We have different stages to achieve through this programme which are outlined below. Keep checking back to see how we're getting on! Anyone can join in and bring in their completed checklist to gain their Bronze, Silver or Gold badge!
Children in Need
The school council hosted a 'pyjama day' at school on Friday 13th November for Children in Need. Everyone, including the teachers, came dressed in pyjamas and stayed toasty throughout the day!
We raised an amazing £619.36 for Children in Need - this fantastic amount will go a long way to helping families tackle difficulties they may have.
Enjoy some of our photographs below!
Salvation Army Gifts - Infant School
We are really excited to announce our participation in gift giving for the Salvation Army.
We are going to collect these gifts from school and deliver them to the Church linked to the Salvation Army for them to be distributed to families in need. These need to be brought into school by Monday 7th December and will be placed underneath our Christmas Tree until they are taken to the Church.
These gifts need to be brand new and unwrapped. Any donations during this time will be greatly received.
It is so lovely to be able to help our wider community now, more than ever.
The children at the Infant School have created a short video outlining the details.
