This year's CiN Day in school, was 'different'; we still took part - as we always do - but we stayed in our classes to stay safe. No Talent Showcases or Cake Sales this year; but plenty of spotty clothes and across the school many ‘Act Your Age’ challenges. The children were challenged to simply take their age, or the combined age of your friends or family, and turn it into a fundraiser. Whether a solo challenge, a socially distanced or virtual group, or a challenge group within class bubbles we raised money to help change young lives across the UK.
Our excellent total raised this year was...£905
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.
Well done all winning nominees.
Our School Council have encouraged their class to have their PUPIL VOICE recently (January)
We are currently asking our classes about:
- potential new timetable for our football playground
- ideas for improving lunchtimes and playtimes
- any other potential ideas as well as things that are working well.
We will keep you up to date!
