What a very busy time we have had here at the School Council. Thank you for returning the questionnaires about being healthy and healthy foods. We know we have sent you lots of things home to have a think about but the answers will help us to make our school a better place. We were really happy to achieved Healthy School status , look out for a new logo at the bottom of your letters.
This week at our meeting we talked about rights. We talked about what rights are and Mrs. Ballard explained that everyone, even children have rights. This linked in really well with our schools Anti-bullying week. Our school is working towards the Rights Respecting School Award. The RRSA is an initiative run by UNICEF UK, which encourages schools to place the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of its ethos and curriculum. On Monday the children will be bringing home a small questionnaire to fill in with your help.
The final agenda item was a very exciting job! Mrs. Walker our Nuture and Positive Play Leader has been waiting for a very long time for her own space to take her children. Work is finishing up on our new outbuilding where Mrs.Walker will be based. The building needed a name, so it was the School Councils job to conduct a vote. We went round and asked every child and adult in school to choose between "The Den" or "The Snug". It was a very close vote but with a winning score of 51%, Mrs.Walkers nurture space is called.........

Another busy agenda for us today ! We recapped our last meeting and signed Mrs Whitton's Parental Behaviour Policy. We went on to have a look at all the designs entered into the 'design a logo' competition'. We have chosen a winner but its a secret! Keep your eyes peeled for the big reveal! Our third agenda item was to review anti-bullying leaflets and images, to help Mrs Newton make our own school leaflet. There were lots to look at and while some were too grown up for us, we found some lovely images and hope Mrs. Newton likes them too. Finally, in preparation for our next meeting, Mrs Ballard asked us to have a think about our play times. You may have noticed some new wooden storage boxes on our playground. These house playtime resources. Mrs Ballard has asked us to talk to our classmates to find out if we are happy with the Lego bricks, books and physical equipment in the boxes and if there is anything else we would like.
