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 School Council representative to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent in their class.
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 speech explaining why they should be elected and represent their class. 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 proud ambassadors and representatives for our school.
What do we do?
Members of the School Council take part in discussions about what we would like to improve in our school and also feedback any relevant information to their class after a meeting. At times, they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the Council in order to make the school better.
Thank you to all your donations for Children In Need, We organised a "Wear what makes you happy" day where Children could wear something that makes them smile and happy in line with the Children In Need message of Children's mental well-being. Everyone who wore non-uniform made a donation which was fantastic!
We also held a Pudsey colouring competition where people donated 50p to enter their colouring design! We had well over 100 entries into this competition and it was very difficult to pick the winners from each year group! You can see the winners below!
Thank you to everyone who donated to this fantastic charity!
