School Council

The school Council play an active and important role in the life of the school. Through the council, pupils are able to contribute ideas and opinions to the decision making process of the school. The Council is co-ordinated by Mrs Spinks and she supports the children with implementing their ideas and suggestions.

  • Increase Pupil Voice

  • Raise funds for different causes and charities
