Pupils met again in the spring to look at how they can make use of the amazing outdoor spaces we have in our academies.

Last Academic Year (2022/23)

The School council have decided to focus on how they can have an impact within school.

To begin, the council members are beginning to design and create welcome packs for new pupils to allow their transition to be smooth and enjoyable. In addition, they are working with the PSHE Lead, to raise the profile across school and reintroduce, in some of the classrooms, a worry box – where pupils can write down concerns that a trusted member of staff can support them with.

During the Spring term – the School Council planted fresh flowers and improving the garden area.

During summer – the School Council began to run a lunch club to support pupils with positive play.


The votes are in and the class ballot boxes have been counted…

Thank you to everyone who campaigned to gain votes from your class friends. The speeches, presentations and posters were very impressive. There was even a recount in one class!
