Welcome to our School Council page!
Hello, we are the School Council, we have been chosen by members of our class ranging from Peartree (Year 1 ) to Danes (Years 5&6).
Every week we have a meeting, Mr Preston (our school volunteer) takes the minutes but we do all the work. Every month Mr Falder, who is our school governor and a member of the Aston Parish Council, comes in and talks to us about what has happened during the month and what is coming up and publishes in the Aston Parish Newsletter.
We also try and make the school a better place for pupils to learn and play.
Our responsibilities are also to take any concerns from pupils and raise them in the meeting.
WHO ARE WE?
Peartree: Ella and Jack
Orchard: Rosie and Cameron
Haffydown: Oscar and Elizabeth
Danes: Ruby and Myles
OUR AGREED AIMS ARE
To make sure the school is a happy place for pupils.
To help people, be kind to and help children find new friends.
To encourage all children in the school to suggest improvements.
To take forward the best ideas to Mrs Winwood for her to consider.
A successful talent show took place on Friday 8th June, with two talented acts winning, Astrid and Demi (key stage 1) and Olivia (key stage 2).
Despite every act performing superbly the judges agreed these acts had an extraordinary talent. This event was sponsored by the school council and raised over £200 which went towards the school funds.
HLC, our school catering company made a change in our schools dietary plans removing jelly from the dinner menu. The school council disagreed with the decision and made a difference. Back and forth we have written letters to Mrs Yearsley, and we come to an agreement with jelly being a dessert on Monday and Thursday. In time to come, we will invite Mrs Yearsley to our school to discuss further ideas.
New gym equipment (benches and mats) were bought, benefiting PE lessons. Considering the equipment was years old, this was an essential addition to the school’s needs.
Beneficial litter pickers were bought in aid of the Eco club helping to support the environment. Previous pickers were fragile and dis joined. Subsequently, we brought reliable ones.
Suggested that the school policy for pupils to wear either shorts or skorts for PE be adopted until the end of the school year.
