Our school council is elected from Y1 and Y2 children in September every year and brings information from the classes to our attention. They have been involved in the development of our School Values and also our beautiful new school logo. YR children are elected to join the School Council in the Summer Terms. The School Council helped to design the new features in the school playground , closely supported by Mrs Bridgeman, our fantastically artistic teaching assistant!
Previously the council members raised funds for Mencap by organising their own Bring and Buy Sale. They raised over £100 in an hour! Some of the council members worked with children from other schools on the things they felt children should experience when they are a child. This now forms the Keynsham Passport of '80 things to do before you are 18' which launched in September 2015.
Our School Council meets with Mrs Mounter. We are going to have a suggestion box in the hall this year, where children can put forward their ideas. School Council members talk to their class and to the school about the school council and what they are doing.
