What We Do!

All children at Waldringfield School have a chance to share their feelings with the school council formally, on a weekly basis. This is because we feel that everyone has a say in how to improve our school.

We have school council assemblies every week. Children in Years 5 and 6 will facilitate the meetings, respond to requests or suggestions and take points from the floor.

We keep a record of our assemblies which can be seen in the book in the Badgers and Owls Corridor. There is a suggestions folder on the School Council board where children can enter their suggestions, and you can also see our school council minutes on the VLE.

Each member of the School Council are given a special role (such as liasing with the Eco Team, Sports representative, 'Headteacher aide')

Our school council team meet every half term and report back to the council about tasks they have undertaken.

The children elect 2 representatives per year via a vote. Children wrote manifestos explaining why they wanted to run for school council and were voted in using ballot papers by their peers. There are 5 representatives from Year 6, one of whom represents the Hedgehog class. We also have a secretary who types the minutes and a chair. We use our school council meetings to discuss important topics and to respond to queries and suggestions given in assembly.
