We try to make sure that the school council achieve what is on the manifestos so remember to make sure what you put on them is realistic and achievable.

If you feel your child needs support to write their manifesto, that is absolutely fine. Please remember to write their name on the back of the manifesto. 

We have kept last years school council information below for you to have a look at if you are stuck for ideas.


This year, the school is aiming to further improve:

On Thursday 22nd April, in the morning, the school councillors were invited to interview four candidates for our new KS1 teacher.  Each councilllor had up to two questions, which they all decided together. 

Everybody was impressed by all the candidates answers, and choosing the strongest applicant was a really tricky task. 



Pumpkin Recycling


We are pleased to announce this year's winners are:  Honey Edmonds and Grace Snowsill.  They both win a voucher of £15 and the school received £50 for books.  

Working with local schools - Marhamchurch C of E Primary -The Community Projects Team


In January, we invited the school council from Marhamchurch school to visit us for the afternoon. We had a great time climbing and playing games, as well as giving them a tour of our school.  Last year, we did a successful beach clean with them, so we thought it would be useful to do another joint community project this year.  We did plan to plant some trees and were waiting to hear from the local councillor.  For now, this project is on hold and we hope to return to it when life is back to normal.  

Playground drainage - The school environment team


This year we have a huge problem with our bottom playground - the cage.  Due to some sinking of the concrete, pools of water form making playtime impossible.  This has led to over crowding on the upper playground and some PE lessons being postponed due to lack of space.  This action team met with Mr Bunning as their chosen project was to improve the drainage.  Just as they were going to write to the council, two members of planning team were in our school and so we took the opportunity for Ashton to meet with them and explain the problems we have been facing.  Watch this space for their response!



Children in Need: 

We raised £366 from our crazy hair day.  Thank you to all of you who donated.  Here are some pictures of the winners from each class.
