Gwladys Street School Council
Each year pupils are invited to apply to be members of the school and are given a specific role within the group. They meet regularly to discuss issues and give feedback on: Maths, IPC, Attendance, and Punctuality, Safeguarding, Lunchtimes, Behaviour and Health and Safety across the school. Mrs Gallagher- Baker and Miss Baker are the lead teachers to support the school council. The school councils work is determined by the priorities outlined in the school development plan.
On Thursday 30th November, the School Council met with Rachel from Absolutely Catering to discuss the autumn term menu and how it could be improved to encourage more pupils to have a hot school meal. Read the meeting minutes attached to see what has been decided.
Look out for the new improved menu!
The children have been involved in designing new safety messages boards the school. They did this through conducting surveys and working in conjunction with the SLT. They look fantastic to support other pupils to keep safe in a variety of scenarios. Well Done!
SLT have provided the school council will two projects to focus on. (i)The children are designing and developing Maths Hubs - a place for the children to develop their maths skills at break and lunch times
(ii) to develop a reading garden.
The council members have conducted research in each class to find out what the pupils in school would like to see in the Maths Hubs and reading garden.
We will keep you posted with updates and developments of the projects. Information is available on our pupil voice boards in the two hall.
We also plan to visit the local recycling centre next term to develop ideas how we can support this further across our school. This will also support in further developing our garden area and the Science curriculum.
The school council plan to continue to develop the Maths Hubs and reading garden alongside maintaining the school garden and ensuring that we develop more recycling across the school. The school council will also be involved in developing the IPC curriculum.
