Term 3



The following matters that have been raised in our Class councils


  • Key Stage One children are hearing the older children swearing around school.
  • Will the new playground surface be hard or soft?
  • Can we have a shaded snack area?
  • At lunchtime children are drinking the water from the cups but instead of putting the remaining water in the bin they are leaving it on the trays for water and other children are then drinking it.
  • Children are taking lunch out of lunch boxes in Key Stage 2. Can we have a safer area to store our lunch boxes? 


This week the School Council voted and short listed two pairs of names for our two school buildings. This week your teacher will be asking you to vote for the one you like best.

  • We are concerned about the amount of litter on the playground.

Class Councils have raised the following issues;


  • Do we need to have a letter sent home to parents of children who are not wearing correct footwear to school?
