At Chandlers Field we value the ideas, creativity and voice of our children. Through the School Council we gather the ideas of the children across the school. Our School Council will enable pupils with positive attitudes to exert a positive influence. Everyone will benefit from the work of the School Council.
Every child votes for two people to represent their class - a councillor and deputy. The school council meet at least twice each term to discuss different aspects of school life. They will then share their discussions with their class and communicate the decisions agreed at the meeting.
The school held elections at the start of the Autumn term for Years 1-6.
The school council will meet once per each half term. The minutes are attached below. There will also be further meetings and working groups to carry forward the ideas of the children.
Congratulations to Lilly who was voted in as Chair and Elsa as Vice Chair.
We had our first school council meeting on Wednesday 5th October. The councillors were fantastic at working together. They voted that house winners should now have a reward each term with a bigger reward at the end of the year for the overall winner.
Minutes from our meetings are shown below. In January we met in smaller groups to learn how to improve our communication and teamwork skills.
