Update this term:
 
During our meetings we have discussed ways to encourage and celebrate kindness in our school. The School Council have designed and implemented a system where children showing kindness are rewarded with a kindness token. All of the kindness tokens are collected into pots for each class and the class with the most tokens at the end of each week is rewarded with extra playtime!
 
We look forward to meeting again soon to hear your ideas to make our school even better!
