Here is our new School Council for 2019-20.
We hope they enjoy being representing the students and working with Miss Euston and Mrs Bell to give our children a voice in the day to day running of Holy Cross and All Saints RC Primary School.
Each School Councillor was elected by their classmates in September 2019. We meet every fortnight and the Councillors feedback to the meeting the things their class has brought up in Circle Time. We also think about safety and enjoyment in the playground and behaviour around school. When there are special events the School Councillors help Mrs Bell.
The School Council meet every fortnight to discuss school issues. There are 2 council members representing each class from Year 1 to Year 6. The children bring issues and comments from their classes to the meeting and all the things we discuss are minuted. The children report back from their class 'circle time' when their classmates raise issues or comment on the the day to day life of the school or on specific points.
It is an opportunity to ensure our anti-bulling policy is being adhered to by all children and allow the pupils to 'have a say' in how certain aspects of the school are organised (lunchtime arrangements, Golden Time, behaviour).
We also have had many opportunities to express thanks to different staff within school for their hard work (recently a number of children wanted to thank the cooks for their 'lovely dinners'). The School Council have voiced the views of their classes on issues outside of school and in the past we have written to our MP and Mayor to complain about vandalism and graffiti in our area. We had a very positive response from both and they thanked us for being concerned citizens.
