Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
The council meets at least once a fortnight to discuss issues raised through class discussion and to give the children an opportunity to share their ideas about proposed improvements to the school. The Council makes a valuable contribution towards the continued success of our School.
At the start of the academic year, children wishing to stand for the school council present a short speech to their class. In line with the British value of democracy,there is then an election and two representatives are chosen to be the school councillors for that academic year.
In School council meetings, all councillors have the opportunity to raise issues and put forward ideas. Any decisions to be made are done with a vote by a show of hands and these are recorded.
Our current reps are:
Ruhi (Topaz) Toby (Jade) Harley (Opal) Harry (Ruby) May (Diamond) Holly (Emerald)
Heather (Onyx) Milly (Garnet) Elizabeth (Sapphire) Zaynab (Quartz) Sabiha (Amethyst)
Poppy (Moonstone) Missie (Larimar) Yunus (Turquoise) Freddie (Serpentine)
Well done all winning nominees.
School council news: (May 2019)
Mrs Tolley and one of our governors, Mrs Samra wanted to capture some images of Mountfields in action and asked the school council to choose some areas they are proud of, including: the squirrel sculpture, school logo, sock puppets, new outdoor learning equipment, hammock, learning cabin and the daily mile, to name but a few!
The School council have also been involved with Peter Leadbeater who has made many amazing sculptures at Beacon Hill and the Outwoods. School council has commissioned and chosen four designs which will be announced in assemblies after half term in June.
So.... what have the School Council carried out this term so far?
At the moment pupils have to have a healthy morning all days except for Tuesday (Choose day)
However the council feel that alot of children have forgotten.
They decided to raise the profile of this and each rep will product a poster to discuss with their class in the next few weeks.
Our photos are displayed on the ramp near Mr Hoare's office - please speak to your school council representative for other improvements for your school.
