School council

 

Meet our new School Council

Our School Council at St. Joseph’s provides each child’s voice to be heard within our school. Every year the children democratically vote two representatives, a boy and a girl, from Year 1 through to Year 6 to collectively share all our pupil’s views and suggestions. These councillors are elected by their year group following a presentation/speech that they have prepared. Every half term the School Council meets following Class Council meetings and these views and suggestions are put forward and wherever possible, acted upon.

Recent actions/decisions have included:

A total new playground surface that was designed for both KS1 and KS2

A banner that is being designed to be used for school events

An extension to our playground for juniors that will include activity equipment

The theme to our summer fair

Equipment received through vouchers – Supermarket vouchers for gardening and play equipment

Winners of the Speaker’s School Council Awards 2015

 

Our councillors at St. Joseph’s do make a difference to our school and take a very active role in improving school life. The children put in a lot of time and effort and enjoy making decisions. They take their role very seriously and wear their councillor badges with pride!

Mrs De Carteret (deputy headteacher) leads the school council.

Our termly Value

This half term we have been thinking about 'Generosity'. The School council chose this value as it is something we think about at Christmas and in the season of Advent. How can you be generous to others?

Official Opening of the Amphitheatre

On the 9th November Mr Andrew Stephenson, the Member of Parliament for Pendle, officially opened our new amphitheater.  The school council had requested an amphitheater in the school grounds which could be used as an outdoor classroom, as an area for worship and a place for the children to create plays and perform them. The new amphitheater was provided by an Awards For All bid, which were very grateful to receive.
