Children are at the heart of our school community. As a school we value the thoughts, ideas and opinions of all our children and the school council is one way of ensuring the voice of the children is heard and so has an impact on the development of the school.
Landscove school council meets twice every half term. The children involved are elected to the council by their peers. They take whole school issues and ideas from their own classmates and feed them into the meetings. They are also responsible for sharing ideas and decisions from the council with their class. Decisions made within school council can, and do have a real impact on the rest of the school.
The school council have a board in the entrance area showing who the councillors are and there is also a suggestion wallet for children to pop in ideas or suggestions they want raised at our meetings.
Autumn term 2017~ This term the council have been busy helping Riverford with reviewing the school menu and arranged a great fundraising day for Children in Need.
Children in Need~ we had a truly spotty (and stripy) day! The school council did a big bake, making cookies to sell at playtime. They also organised a ‘Pin the Patch on Pudsey’ competition~ raising a fantastic total of £169.40! Well done.
Spring term 18~ Sport Relief
The school council decided that to ‘do our bit’ for Sport Relief we would do a fun run around the village and pay a £1 entry fee. All the children participated with energy and enthusiasm and supported each other along the way…. After the run we listened to a presentation led by the older school council members about the work of Sport Relief. Great work!
