Roles in the School Council
School Council Meetings
We hold regular meetings to discuss ways in which we can improve our school. We also come up with ideas for raising money for charity and for the school and often act as the judging panel for school competitions.
Members of the Governing Body attend our School Council meetings.
During the meetings we have a Chair Person who leads the meeting and a minute taker. It is the responsibility of the School Council members to report back outcomes to their class. Sometimes the School Council will lead assemblies to share information with the whole school. This year we will learn to use electronic ways to communicate. We have a School Council noticeboard which is situated by our hall.
What do we want to achieve this Autumn?
How can you help our School Council be the best it can be?
As a child who goes to Dane Royd, don't forget that you can put forward your suggestions about how to improve our school in a number of ways:
Speak to a School Council representative and they will jot your comments down, which they will then take to the next meeting.
You can also write down your idea on a slip of paper and post it to your School Council representative. They will then bring this to the next meeting.
Write down your idea on a slip of paper and post it to Mrs Kendall who will take it to the School Council meeting.
School Council Newsletters and Updates
The School Council will update the whole school on outcomes from their meetings during Friday Assembly.
The School Council in Action
Our School Values
The School Council worked with Mrs Kendall, the Curriculum leader, to re-design our school values. We started by thinking about what is feels like to be a pupil at Dane Royd. We then asked the question, 'What values and behaviours do we expect from our staff and children at Dane Royd?'
The School Council have been working hard on improving playtimes in school. We started by fundraising to raise money for some new games and puzzles for wet playtimes. Well done to all our winners of the book raffle.
