We are a group of children representing our classes from year one to six. Keeping our school Vision and Values is at the heart of what we do. Our aim is to ensure that all pupils have a voice and that we have a welcoming, safe, inclusive and inspiring learning environment. We gather ideas from our classes and meet every few weeks with Mrs Harvey and Miss Baish. The School Council meetings are a place to share views, suggest improvements and voice concerns. We act with responsibility and respect. Throughout the year, we are involved in charity fundraising events and arranging projects such as improvement work for our school and the community we live in.
