School Council

Two representatives from each year group (Y2-Y6) are democratically elected by their peers to form the School Council. They meet on alternate weeks to discuss current school issues. They act as a link between pupils and teachers, reporting from the Class Councils and feeding into the School Council meetings.

Through the School Council, a suggestion box or the ‘Quiet Bench’, pupils can voice concerns or share ideas. The School Council feels that it is their role to help people solve problems and disagreements, to encourage and help children to fundraise for charity and for school projects and generally to make the school a better place.
They are also ambassadors for the school and are given opportunities for responsibilities or to represent the school.

Sandringham Flower Show

Posted on August 30th, 2019

A wonderful end of term was swiftly followed by the children exhibiting their work at the Sandringham Flower Show, which was attended by HRH Prince Charles and the HRH Duchess of Cornwall. Everyone that attended was very interested in the work the children had done on conservation and especially the action that had taken too, for example the School Council’s visit to Hunstanton by bus, to do a litter pick on the beach.

Children in Need 2016…

Posted on November 22nd, 2016

The whole school looked VERY spotty indeed, to raise money for children that are less fortunate than us.

A very well done to you all. The school council will announce how much was raised, once it has been counted up.

Watch this space…

The School Council presented Collective Worship to let everyone know all about Alma.

Alma lives in Bangladesh and we sponsor her through World Vision. The money we donate helps her to have an education. World Vision also helps her community by providing livestock so they can feed themselves and ensures children get vaccinated.worldvision-brandmaster

To continue supporting her we ask they you bring a few pennies each week to our family collective worship on Fridays.

Spring Term Events

Posted on January 16th, 2016

This term we have two main charitable events taking place.

We shall be helping the Diocese raise money for a classroom for a school in Papua New Guinea. We hope to do this by having pancake tossing races on Shrove Tuesday.

During the second half-term we shall join the nation in helping to raise money as part of Sports Relief. If you have any ideas for this please let your class reps know.Pancake
