Welcome from the School Council
The School Council is an elected group of children (two from each year group) who get together and discuss things about our school. We are the voice of all the other children in our classes and it is our job to feedback their ideas and concerns to the Senior Leadership Team and Governors of the School.
Our councillors do such a fantastic job of listening to children in order to improve our school. The School Council meets bi-weekly so that councillors get plenty of time to listen to the views of their peers and not a moment is wasted!
The School Council are involved in important decision making. They:
- take forward initiatives and projects on behalf of the pupils
- are involved in the strategic planning of the School Improvement Plan
- help improve teaching and learning
- are involved in staff appointments
The School Council aim :
- To ensure the Senior Leadership Team and Governors respond to the views of all the pupils.
- To have an opportunity to let teachers know our feelings and opinions
- To have a say in decisions that affect pupils in the school
- To play an active role in making Seaton C of E Junior School a better place
- To help pupils at Seaton C of E Junior School enjoy their education and feel safe being in school
Our Contribution to the School Development Plan 2017-18
We asked our Class Councils (in each of the eight classes) for ideas of how to celebrate reading in school. We love reading at Seaton St Paul's CE Junior School!
Here is what the classes suggested that the staff consider:
•The School Council creating a Powerpoint to show in assembly about reading being fun
• Having posters around the school of staff and famous people reading
• Showing David Walliams talking about reading
• Showing celebrities enjoying reading
• Having famous people talking about how they became interested in reading
• Inviting authors into school
• Promoting reading throughout the school on corridors in all areas and cloakrooms
• Celebrating reading achievements in Celebration Assembly
• Having more time to read independently
• Pairing up with other year groups to read
• Having 'Book Snacks' in class with children sharing their current favourite books
