School Council

School Council 2017-2018 

 

Hello everyone! Welcome to our school council page.

 

At Westerhope we are proud to have pupil representatives that take part in School Council meetings.  These councils are in place so that pupils have a voice and are involved in decisions about the school that affect them.  Through School Council all pupils have the opportunity to raise issues, share ideas and take part in discussions that involve all of their classmates in reaching a democratic solution. Pupils at Westerhope know that this is their school and their thoughts and ideas matter.

 

 

Meeting the governors

 

Today the school councillors met with the governors! We had the chance to give them a tour around school and share with them our learning so far in the year. We looked at the displays, books and discussed our favourite lessons. The school councillors were very professional and were able to tell the governors what they liked about Westerhope. They said:

- " everyone is friendly"

- " the teachers are kind and help us "

- " it is a safe place to be in"

 

We will be feeding back to the governors at different parts of the year so watch this space!

School Council Meeting 14.9.17 

 

I got to meet with all of the pupils today to welcome them to the school council! 

We introduced ourselves and said why we wanted to be school councillors. Here are some of their quotes... 

 

" I want to improve attendance at Westerhope by getting the whole school involved"  

" I hate to see people playing by themselves, I want to set up games and activities to make everyone play" 

" The little kids find the big yard difficult so I would like to help them" 

 

 

First we had a vote to decide who would be our chair and vice chair councillors. Our year 6 pupils told everyone why the wanted to be picked and everyone voted. 

Next we discussed what they needed to ask their class before the next meeting. I asked them to find out what their class likes about Westerhope and what they would like to improve. This would give us a good starting point to see what each year group thinks. 

Finally I showed them the badges that they will get to wear around the school. They were very impressed so watch this space for a photo!

 

Here are your School Councillors for this year! smiley

During our meeting the school councillors created an 'Advent of Kindness.' Each day of December the class representative will choose a person to pull an act of kindness from the advent calendar that they need to try and complete that day. We want to continue the fantastic work from our 'Random Acts of Kindness' week and spread kindness and joy throughout December.

                                                                               

18.11.16 The School Council had a very hard job today selecting wonderful cakes to be judged in front of Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood in our very own Westerhope Bake Off for Children in Need!

14.11.16

The School Council met today to discuss their role in Random Acts of Kindness Week.  They have been role models and are looking for anyone who they think has been kind. They also discussed the Grear Westerhope Bake Off and discovered that they are going to be responsible for choosing their classes entries. Fantastic work today everyone!

This week's school council meeting was thinking about ways to be kind to each other. Mrs McManus came along to the meeting and videoed our ideas, ready to show in assembly during 'Random Acts of Kindness' week beginning 14th November.

 

Can you think of other ways that we can be kind to each other?

 

School council members will be making posters to put up around school to promote ways of being kind.

During this week's meeting, school councillors fed back the fantastic ideas their peers had about 'How to improve children's times table knowledge in school.' Take a look at just some of the ideas the children had:

 

  • Display times tables around the communal areas in school
  • Hold times table competitions where children can win prizes
  • Run a times table club
  • Inter school times table competitions
  • Elect Maths/ Times table ambassadors
  • Parent Vs Pupils times table event
  • Learn times tables through songs/ raps
  • Times table / Number bond markings on the school yard
  • Each child should be given a Maths book with key facts inside such as times tables

 

These ideas are fantastic and we hope to implement lots of these thoughts very, very soon! Watch out for photographs of the school councillors at work, making Westerhope Primary School even better!

The school council is made up of student representatives from each class from Years Two to Six. The pupils attend regular meetings where their views and ideas can be shared. They make decisions on the things that are important to them and the class they represent and work together with the staff to ensure that pupils have a real voice during their time at Westerhope.
