School Council

Welcome to our School Council page.

We, in the School Council, are a group of children who have been elected by our classmates to represent them and put their views forward.
We meet each half term to discuss ideas and suggestions that have been put forward to make our school a better place.
Burrough Green School Council Meeting
Number Two – October 2017

When: Thursday 12th October 2017, during Assembly
Where: Atrium
Who: Mrs Street, Sol I, Freya MR, Chloe C, Alfie C, Luca S, Varya Z, Connor A and Amiee R.

School Council Roles:
The roles were voted for and The Chair is Sol and The Secretary is Chloe.

Happiness Survey:
School council members decided to remove one question.
Mrs Street and Mrs Vosper have made a slight change to the way that the questions are answered; there are now 3 faces rather than 5. This change is to make it easier to record and analyse the results. As well as trying to ensure more accurate answers, as people tend to go for the middle option when there are more than 3 to choose from.

Fundraising Ideas:
A plan has been created to show which fundraising events will happen in each term.

Things to be done before the next meeting:
Mrs Street is to meet with SI and CC to explain their roles which they will start next meeting.
Mrs Street is to create the final version of the Happiness Survey and send this to teachers to carry out with their classes – school council members would like to help with this if possible.
Mrs Street is to type up the fundraising ideas and into a timetable.
Mrs Street to share the fundraising ideas with the staff and PTA.
Mrs Street and school council are to finish the display board.
As our recent minutes show, we, the School Council, have been interested in improving meals. We carried out our own survey and met with representatives from CCS to discuss our findings, some of which have been adopted.
Our first School Council meeting of the new year was held on Wednesday 12th October. This year we will be helping to explore how to make learning easier and more engaging for pupils. In our first meeting we split up into groups lead by Y6 councillors and listed all the things we could think of that helps us with our learning. This was used by the teachers to create a list of ideal learning behaviours. We will also be undertaking some surveys to find out more about what pupils think, such as the Children’s Society ‘Happiness Survey’.
