School Council

Welcome to the School Council!

The School Council is an amazing opportunity for pupils at Woodlands Primary School to share their views and to help make Woodlands Primary School even greater!

School Council members will know what is important to the people in their class and will come to School Council meetings to share these ideas.

The School Council makes a real difference! Last year the School Council worked hard on a special job for our Investors in Pupils award! Councillors created inspiring initiatives for the school including activities based on saving resources and developing our team spirit!

They also challenged us to further improve our behaviour system and were instrumental in devising the new 'It's Good to be Green' Policy, the impact of which truly has exceeded our expectations! Retiring Chair, Anna Hanlon, must be praised for her challenge and commitment to this project!  All children are rewarded for making positive behaviour choices and choose their Friday afternoon learning activity from an exciting range of options (see Academy for further information).

Elections

Members of our new School Council were appointed in September. Councillors are very excited about their role and look forward to working in partnership with us to further improve our school.

Meetings

Y4/6 councillors will meet every Wednesday lunchtime in Class 14.

Y3/5 councillors will meet every Tuesday lunchtime in Class 11.

This year, we are going to be thinking about developing and implementing our 'Steps to Success' initiative. The School Councillors will be creating learning target booklets, continuing work on Rights of the Child and will also work alongside staff to design and create inspiring displays in class and round the school!

Councillors have been busy designing an induction leaflet for new children joining Woodlands and plan to trial and evaluate the success of this! We will be thinking carefully about the link between our academies and Step 6 thinking in line with Steps to Success, ensuring all pupils continue to make positive choices and develop their own personal code of conduct!

Mrs Dean and Miss Davis have been working with the councillors to learn more about the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. These rights describe what a child needs to survive, grow, and live up to their potential in the world. They apply equally to every child, no matter who they are or where they come from. We will be linking this topic to our Afritwin project and the pupil council will be instrumental in building awareness of these rights throughout the school.

The Pupil Council is an exciting opportunity to make a great school even greater - I can't wait to see what we can achieve this term!
