Greenleys First School Council consists of 12 School Councillors, two elected from each of the classes, from Foundation Stage to Year 2.
The School Council’s main function is to involve all pupils in the life of the school.
This is achieved through the ‘pupil’s voice’ being heard through the School Council itself and through weekly class ‘circle times’, where School Councillors can give updates and take suggestions and recommendations for future activities.
The School Councillors meet once every week for a formal meeting, guided by a school teacher, where minutes of the meetings are taken and kept on record.
Voting for Greenleys School Council concluded this week and an assembly was held to award each elected pupil a certificate marking their place on the council for this academic year. School Council meetings will commence from next week and the School Council will be announcing their first council project very soon!
This week's assembly also introduced the final project from last year’s School Council; a new whole school reward system which gives children the opportunity to vote for a whole school end of term reward. This term pupils can vote between a pyjama day, a change your teacher day and a longer morning break. Children can vote using 'Piggy Tokens'; special tokens given to children who really impress their teachers by demonstrating our school's core values!
