School Council Meetings
Spring Term 2016
Wednesdays at 9am
Here at Harold Wood Primary School we believe all our stakeholders play an equal part in the success of our school. We believe that our pupils are our most important asset.
Our school council is a committee of pupils, from Years 1 - 6, who are elected by their peers. Each class holds special elections in which children are invited to stand as candidates and present their reasons for wanting to stand as a councillor. Two successful representatives are elected from each class to serve as school councillors.
Our school council does an invaluable job helping the headteacher and school governors improve our school. They meet with the headteacher, our parents and members of the school's governing body, to discuss issues and give their ideas and opinions on decisions we take as a school. This lends our most important stakeholders a powerful voice in how their school is managed.
Our school council also identifies areas they would like to see improved, then work with our headteacher and school governors to achieve this. They organise fund raising events for both school based projects and charitable organisations as well as building links with other schools and local community events.
Our Councillors are always busy thinking about all the things they can do to make our school the best it can be. Some of the things they have thought about are healthy eating, sports week and fund raising.
The Councillors will be given a new booklet 'How to be a Smart School Councillor'. We hope they find it useful !
