Welcome To Longmoor Primary's School Council
Why do we have a School Council?
The School Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made. Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each Councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.
Who can be a member of the School's Council?
Each member of our School Council is elected by their classmates at the beginning of the school year after a short presentation explaining why they should be elected. School Council members need to be confident at speaking in front of others, and be a good role model for others in the school. School Council members will be ambassadors for our school.
What do we do?
Members of the Council take part in discussions about what we would like to improve in our school and also feedback any relevant information to their class. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the Council. The School Council are also responsible for monitoring safety in our school and regularly review anti-bullying initiatives.
An enourmous thank you to Longmoor School Council who helped our school raise a fantastic £1141.86!
This year the School Council decided to raise money by having a non-uniform day wearing lots red, designing a red nose competition and organising a tasty cake sale at breaktime. The standard of the red nose entries was very high and it made choosing a winner very difficult. Well done to all who entered!
All the childern enjoyed a fun day and should feel very proud of their efforts in raising such a super amount for charity.
