Christ Church Primary School recognises the importance of the pupil voice and making our pupils part of the decision making process. Councillors are elected by their peers and each class (Y1 to Y6) is represented by two councillors. They meet on a regular basis and then report back to their classes through class council meetings, giving all children some involvement in the decision making process. The School Council has its own bank account and councillors can make choices on which initiatives they would like to support financially.
This year the School Council has been involved in reviewing some of the school’s policies; interviewing candidates for teaching posts; leading Collective Worships and assemblies; organising fund-raising events and part-funding an art project for three of the year groups. School Councillors also canvassed the opinions of their peers and chose to support: Sport Relief, RSPCA and Julia’s House as their charities.
One of the more exciting parts of the year was hosting a tea party to say ‘thank you’ to the many volunteers who give up their time to support the school.
