School Council

School Council is a group of children from year 3 to year 6. We have two representatives from each class, a boy and a girl, who are elected on a yearly basis to represent their peers. . The council meets regularly to discuss issues which are relevant to our school. They represent views of our children, conduct surveys and meet with the Head Teacher, Senior Leadership team, Teachers and Governors.

It is important for us, as a school, to listen to the views of our pupils and take on board areas in which they believe we can improve. The views and opinions of all children matter to us.

When necessary they keep detailed minutes of each meeting and liaise with Miss Jones and Mrs Needham and other adults in the school community. All this helps to develop skills which will enable children to be effective citizens.

Due to current pandemic and school closures we have not elected school council members for this year.


School Council News and updates

Tuesday 13th January 

Towards the end of last year, our School Council made posters to try and encourage local residents to clean up after their dogs and help make the area around school a cleaner place. Today, they ventured out into the village and put their posters up in prominent areas around Deepcar, with the hope that it will encourage dog owners to help keep pavements dog poo free. 


Another great job by our School Council.

Year 5 and 6 School Council members met with Mrs Needham this afternoon. Together they are seeking funding from the Acorn Fund, which is part of the Children's University. If the funding is received, the money will be used to purchase resources for our school.
