Our School Council allows the voice of students throughout the school to be heard. The council consists of two representatives from each class: one elected and one that is chosen by the class teacher.
All class teachers choose a new school council member before each meeting to ensure that all of our learners experience being part of the school council at some point during their time at St Ambrose's. Children from reception are helped in their role as council representatives by two year 6 councillors specially chosen by their class teacher.
Each class has regular council meetings to discuss any issues they wish to raise at the school council meeting.
The council meet regularly to discuss issues and opportunities that arise within school to ensure ideas and opinions from all school members are heard.
The school council has only been recently re-established however they have already made their presence felt!
- They have been consulted and made sensible suggestions towards the school's marking and feedback policy.
- Come up with ideas and rules to improve behaviour at playtimes.
- Introduced a 'Message from the school council' section on the newsletter.
- Thought of ways to make our 'Celebration' assembly more exciting.
- Have organised a 'Go Pyjamas' day for Children in Need and raised over £250!
Well done and keep up the hard work!
