The School Council
We are very proud of our School Council.
Led by four elected Chairs from Year 6 each year, the Council has a real and vital role in the leadership of our school and its improvement. The whole school votes in the election for the four Chairs from Year 6. This year they each produced campaign films which were shown in every classroom before the secret ballot took place.
Our current Chairs are Joshua Hunt, Amelina Rizzo, Matthew Watson and Quinn O’Riordan. They are supported by a Community and S=P+A+C+E for ME team, a small group of Secretaries, a Finance team, a Communications team, a team of Digital leaders and eco-warriors with the Headteacher’s Task Force and Sports Crew.
Their collective role is a significant one, helping lead and implement change that it is right for our School.
Last year despite the lockdown, the various groups organised fund raising – our very successful Warm Wednesday campaign raising over £1500 for our local Homeless shelter, Number 5 – they ran a great talent show, designed and worked on different stalls at PTA fundraising events, organised and ran our school stationery shop and gave vital feedback on what we do as a School day to day.
Our Eco warriors
To help keep our school green and clean, each class elects an Eco-warrior (led by the two Year 6 eco warriors). As a team the Eco-warriors have written an eco-code for the school and encourage everyone to follow it and promote ways in which we can be environmentally friendly. A real focus last year was on healthy eating in school and reducing waste. This year they are very keen to work on how to improve air quality in and around the school by reducing traffic pollution and improving ventilation around the school building. This builds on our work with Surrey University which you can read here.
