What is the School Council?
The school council works to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at Greenfield. We look around for things that could be better and discuss what to do. Everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished we vote on the best ideas and then start working on changing things. We speak to teachers, children and a range of other people involved in our school.
Who are the School Councillors?
Every year we run an election campaign to vote for two new representatives for each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings.
You can find out who our school councillors are and information from all our meetings on our board in school!
What are our aims?
As last year was disrupted we decided to allow our councillors to continue in their role for this school year. The children have all introduced themselves to each other and they have voted for a chairperson and secretary.
School council pupils have the responsibility to share the ideas and suggestions from their classes each meeting.
This academic year, our councillors are doing a fantastic job and are currently working on lots of ideas including, fundraising for our charity of the year and helping to review and design this webpage. Their big project of the year is to look at well-being in school. They are working to raise awareness of mental health and well-being and are involved in helping the school achieve the bronze food for life award.
