Aims of the School Council
The school council enables pupils’ voices to be heard, promotes active citizenship and is a link between pupils in classes and the school staff.
What have we improved?
School council have worked together to try to improve wellbeing. They have helped to deliver an assembly and ensured that mindfulness is taking place in classes.
We have had a voice in the review of the school's behaviour and anti-bullying policy.
We are going to be working on achieving 'smokefree gates'. This is a scheme which involves schools and other settings, encouraging them to adopt and implement a smokefree gates policy.
Smokefree gates is part of a wider movement to increase the amount of smokefree spaces across Tameside.Let’s make smoking history for children and young people!
Walk To School
In the interests of the environment and our health, we will be encouraging as many children to walk to school as possible. Each class will have a poster to record how they got to school and School Council will monitor this weekly. We will also be encouraging more walking, including the daily mile.
