The School Council is made up of elected representatives from each of the classes. They meet on a regular basis to discuss issues of importance to their classes. They can invite key people to their meetings if they feel it is necessary (for example, the Headteacher). After meetings they feed back their decisions and recommendations to their classes.
School Council has two members from each class who have been elected by their peers after giving a speech as to why they should be part of the school council. Everyone has this opportunity from Year 1 to Year 6.
The School Councils’ job is to ensure that the school environment is a happy place for all, they also work on charity/ fundraising days with the running’s of certain events.
The chosen charities for the school year of 2023/24 are:
- The Dog's Trust
- CHAT Oundle
Both charities were picked in a meeting with all representatives, and these were the ones that were chosen in the first meeting.
The school council representatives will meet every 3-4 weeks to discuss charity days, the school council board and any other important information.
