School Council 2021-2022
What do we do?
A school council is a group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.
The objective of an effective School Council is to help children and young people to:
- Enjoy and feel empowered by their education.
- Feel that their school responds to their needs and views.
- Have the opportunity to let adults know their feelings and opinions about things that affect them.
- Have a say about decisions, and to play an active role in making their school a better place.
The School Council Vision Statement is as follows:
- Our school council works together as a team to ensure we can be the best school possible by discussing ideas and making decisions.
- We aim to make pupils feel comfortable, happy and safe at school
- We aim to listen to others and discuss comments and suggestions that would make our school an even more wonderful place
The school council has worked very hard this year carrying out many tasks to help, assist and support life at Warren Park.
They have worked with the kitchen to try to encourage children to eat a variety of different hot school dinners and next year there might be some more news on this project.
A big thankyou to Megan a Year 5 school councillor who along some other children from Year 5 and taken on the roles of Junior Road Safety Officers Connie, Ruby, Dawson and Megan have presented in school assemblies on how to stay safe on and around the roads. They produced a PowerPoint in their own time and quizzed the children on what they know about road safety, cycling on our roads and how to stay safe in when travelling as a passenger.
Playtimes and the use of space with children playing with balls has been an issue that the school councillors have been really helpful with. they conducted a class poll on how best to use the outdoor spaces at breaktimes and lunchtimes.
The school council have been enthusiastic and helpful this year and the school is extremely lucky to have such a good representation across all the classes.
Also thankyou to Aria from Year 4 who stepped into the role when Imogen changed schools.
Next year’s elections will take place in October 2023.
The school council carried out a survey of the lunchtime menu. Each child that has a hot school dinner was asked a series of questions about what was there favourite dish on the current menu and any alternative options to the current menus. The children completed the survey in their year groups and then reported the findings back to the group in the next meeting.
“the food is really good at school”
“I like pizza the best “
“the variety is really good and its healthy”
“could we please have some chicken stir fry or chicken salad”
A big thankyou to Jaxon and Megan who on the recent parent workshop met parents at the main door and then showed them to their seats. They were both polite and friendly and did an amazing job. All the parents were very impressed with your manners and friendly faces, well done!
The School elections have taken place over the last week and we had over 70 applicants across the school which is amazing. The Warren Park Values Committee had the hard task of anonymously choosing representatives for each year group. As a result I am pleased to announce the new school council for 2021-2022.
