The school council consists of a girl and boy representative from each of the seven year groups, together with 2 staff members. Meetings are held once every half-term to discuss a number of issues, usually raised by whole class discussions during ‘circle time.’ The children take great pride in their roles within the school council, which produces sensible discussion and decision making for the benefit of all pupils.
We are currently trialling the use of SmartSchoolCouncils, an interactive tool that can be used in class, enabling every child to have a vote on key issues. Our aim is to ensure every child in our school has a voice and that their voice is heard. We are also linking more closely with our Friends of Burnham (FOBs) team this year, working together to develop and improve our school environment.
Our current school councillors are:
Year 6 – Kenny and MJ
Year 5 – Mya and Oliver
Year 4 – Robbie and Zara
Year 3 – Kieran and Imogen
Year 2 – Harry and Bo
Year 1 – Henry and Bodie
Reception – Cassius and Jenny-Wren
We voted to name the new beach huts. We named them Seashore, Seashell and Seahorse.
We organised and ran 3 games at the Autumn Fair. We raised £29.40.
