At SS Peter and Paul’s School, we encourage children to be free thinkers and to contribute to the life of the school.  The ideal forum for this is the School Council.  Children from Years 1 to 6 have the opportunity to be elected by their peers to represent their class views and to serve on the School Council.

The School Council meets once a month, led by Mrs Leary. The members enjoy and thrive in this formal setting and often discuss valuable issues such anti-bullying, recycling projects, school food, fund-raising for projects and charities, activity requests and much, much more.

The School Council are also called upon from time to time to be ambassadors of the school at various events, a duty they all carry out with pride.  Watch this space for interesting and fascinating projects from our School Council.

Minutes of Meetings:

School Council Minutes 

 Anti-Bullying Week (13th – 29th November 2016)

The School Council led a whole-school assembly on this topic which they prepared. During the assembly they talked about famous people who have been bullied, what bullying is and what to do about it.  They also showed a video clip of a ‘Topsy and Tim’ story to help the younger children to understand more about bullying.  At the assembly they launched their ‘Anti-Bullying’ poster competition in which all children were invited to design an anti-bullying poster.

Anti Bullying Charter

The school council members held discussions in their classes and then brought all of their ideas together to write an Infant and Junior anti-bullying charter.

Holocaust Memorial Day

The School Council wrote prayers and took them to the Holocaust Day memorial service at Valentines Park.  They talked to the rest of the school about their experience at an assembly.

Playground Equipment

The school council from the previous year were involved in choosing new games for the playground.  They discussed the likes and dislikes with their classes and were given a budget and they then chose a selection of games for KS1 and KS2.
