Our school council is an important way in which we use child-voice to help shape decisions about aspects of the school – last year they helped to design the challenge trail which was built, planned charity events and evaluated our school vision. We will be voting for our new school council next week. Children in each class can put themselves forward and all they need to do is be able to say to the rest of the class why they think they would be a good councillor. Following this, a private ballot will take place in each class. If your child is enthusiastic about this you might like to help them plan and rehearse what they want to say. Our Class 1 children will also vote but this will be a more simple process for them and Mrs Mason will steer them through it!
