School Council

Our School Council is made up of a series of specialist groups of pupils working alongside a specialist teacher or teachers who lead that area of the curriculum across the school.

Hearing our pupil’s voice is important to us and utilizing all the children’s wonderful ideas, suggestions and feedback cannot be wasted. 

Rosena Khan our local MP spoke to us all in assembly to help launch our school council. She discussed our system of government in the UK and was a real inspiration to us all as she shared her personal motivation behind her journey into government.

Our current specialist groups are: 

Heath & Wellbeing

Digital Leaders

Theme Team

Maths Masters

Literacy Leaders

Young Interpreters

Right Respecting
