School Council

school-council-badgeOur School Council hosts pupil representatives from each year group. Pupil voice is important to us.

Our council is careful to make sure that everyone’s views are heard when making decisions and their work makes a significant contribution to the school and wider community.

Who we are…

We are the school council. We are elected by our peers to help make the school a better place. We are here to represent the opinions of our class and make improvements to our school community.

What we do…

Last term we worked on zoning our playground and introducing play equipment for the playground at lunch time. We worked with the school sports ambassadors and devised a rota for sports monitors to set up the playground. We also raised some money to purchase a storage unit for our play equipment and the Friends of Barrs Court very kindly donated £125.00 towards it.

Updates…

We have been working very hard this year and we have achieved the following for our school:-

  • Devised the new toilet rules ‘Code of Conduct’!
  • A cake sale which raised £143.85 for the Wallace and Gromit Grand appeal.
  • Oak benches for the school field from a local donation.
  • We wrote to South Gloucestershire Council and asked them to repaint the yellow lines outside of our school.
  • Developed ideas for the new school garden.
  • Hair Raising day – raised £240 for the new school garden.
  • Fruit Tuck – we devised a questionnaire and then changed fruit tuck so that the majority of people could have a whole piece of fruit as requested.
