school council newsIMG_1006

School Council held a meeting on 30.10.17 to discuss duties around school and the results of the pupil questionnaires. The council have decided the following changes:

7 children attended the meeting and 1 adult

  1. New rotas have been agreed for children across school, children didn’t feel the jobs were being properly done and children were not listening to those on duty

  2. Corridor monitors have only one duty per week

  3. All children when on duty must wear a high viz coat –  library & corridor monitors in particular

  4. Mrs Rodgers must order badges for the different roles

  5. School Council will now help run assemblies when they are in the hall – music, certificates and badges will be given by the children to help the teachers do their job

  6. Only Lion Class School Council can run Tuck Shop

  7. Children would like to choose a song to celebrate the life of a former pupil – Christina Perri, Thousand Years was voted for – Choir to learn the words and teach everyone else ready for November 17th – Children in Need Day

  • The School Council takes part in lots of activities including:
  • Listening to the views and concerns of other pupils;
  • Representing these concerns to teachers, Mrs. Rodgers and other adults;
  • Coming up with ideas to help improve the school and make decisions;
  • Thinking of ways to contribute locally and globally;
  • Fundraise for Brockley and charities;
  • Having the responsibility for a budget;
  • Representing Brockley at events

Being a school councillor is a very responsible position as you have to have a lot of sensible ideas and sometimes have to do things in your lunch times. However, it is your chance to play an important part in our Brockley community. You may feel a little nervous about putting yourself up for election but it is exciting to see what happens when people share their ideas so be brave!

If you think you would like to represent your class, the next step is the election process!

Elections – Monday 18th September 2017

People who would like to run for School Council will apply present their ideas to the whole school in a special assembly:
Why they would like to be a School Council member;
What issues they think are important;
How they will work to represent the ideas of the class.

To make it fair, there will be a vote by the children so that everyone can decide who will best represent them.

You may feel a little nervous about putting yourself up for election but it is exciting to see what happens when people share their ideas so be brave!

Best of luck with your campaigns: I am very excited to see what ideas you come up with to help improve our school.
