School Council/Pupil Voice

 

The School Council is supported by Mrs Saggers, our Key Stage 2 leader.

 

At the beginning of the year, each class select two School Council Representatives. Candidates make speeches and secret voting takes place. One girl and one boy are elected to represent the interests of their class.

 

Listening to our pupils is really important to us at High Wych Primary School. We are always keen to hear everyone’s ideas and suggestions about how we can make our school even better. Children have a chance to offer their ideas by talking to the School Council representatives. We meet regularly to discuss current concerns and to share ideas. We hold half termly Pupil Voice days where all children in the school split into house team groups and discuss important issues with all children in the school. We then feedback our outcomes to the rest of the school council group in our next meetings and decide actions to take.

Charities

Our school regularly supports the following charities assisted by the Eco Council.

  • Comic Relief - Red Nose Day
  • The Royal British Legion - Poppy Appeal
  • Children in Need
  • Samaritan's Purse - Christmas Shoeboxes

The school community also support local charities and organisations through donations made during our Easter, Harvest and Christmas Services.

Children in Need

For Children in Need day 2014, we decided to have a pyjama and onesie day to raise money. We made this decision because we asked all the school what they would like to do and wearing pyjamas or a onesie was the most popular choice.

Everyone really enjoyed the day and bought in £1 for the charity, this resulted in a great total of £212.25 for the4 well deserved charity.

Pupil Voice

The school council planned a pupil voice day in April where the whole school separated into 8 groups to share their ideas on how the key stage 2 playground could be improved.

They then met with the PTA to tell them our ideas. Hopefully they can help us to make our playtimes better! We are looking forward to some changes being made!
