School Council 2022/2023

Every year a new school council is elected to represent the children at council meetings. The school council is made up of children from each year group.

The job of the school council is to listen to ideas from other children in the school and to pass these on to the Teacher Representatives when they are discussed at regular meetings held within school.

Our school council for 2022/2023:- 


Year 1 Josiah Emily
Year 2 Lucas Charlotte
Year 3 Zach Niamh
Year 4 Hugo Chloe
Year 5 Alex Theo
Year 6 Tom Isla


Update 14/11/22

Good morning all,

I'm pleased to announce that our courtyard project, led by the school council, has been given the go ahead to start.

We are expecting work to commence during Easter on Monday 3rd April. If all goes to plan, your children will experience an additional outside area to learn within our developing school grounds (see plan attached).

A massive thank you to the PHA who have raised money over the years and supported this project - without them this would not be possible.

Many thanks

Mr Swift

Update 10/10/22

Good afternoon everybody,

Today was our first council meeting and we had a busy agenda to discuss.

We introduced ourselves to one another and quickly got down to business, discussing the plans for the courtyard, potential fund raising opportunities and a future Christmas jumper swap to help the environment.

The councillors are very eager and will be feeding back to their classes about the points raised.

Many thanks
Mr Swift

Garden Project Update - May 2017

The School Council put some finishing touches to our new garden area today. With the help from our landscape workers who have been constructing our new garden, the children began the planting for a wild flower area. The garden will hopefully soon be blooming with colour, once the seeds begin to grow.

The children sowed the seeds and watered the ground and have been given the responsibility of the up-keep of this area over the coming weeks. The children are excited to see the garden begin to take more shape over the summer months and years ahead. 

Again we would like to extend our thanks to Newground for helping us with this project and also to the amazing fundraising that the PHA have organised along with the help of our school community.

This year our school council have been working very hard in helping to transform part of our playing field into a new garden.

New School Garden-Progress Update - February 2017
We are delighted that our new school garden is well underway. During half term the main grounding was put in to transform the area. Last term the School Council discussed names for the paths in the new garden area with all the children in school. On the very last Friday, they voted for the paths to be named ‘Friendship Footpath’ and ‘Peaceful Pathway’ and we are waiting for the archways to be installed. Another job the school council will be carrying out is to think of a name for the garden area this term.

The School Council have met with the builders this week and discussed the project so far. They have also met with the architect, Louise, to discuss the next phase of the development.

Once again, a huge thank you to our PHA who have worked so hard to raise the funds to make this project possible. Thank you also to our Year 6 children who raised £83.15 writing, producing and selling the February edition of “CC News”.
