Rather than the adults telling you what the School Council is, we thought it would be best for our lovely Councillors to let you know. Thank you to Kai, Zac and Bradley for your excellent explanation.
“We meet regularly to discuss ways to make our school better. We have recently taken part in an Ivy competition about healthy eating. We are hoping to meet with staff and speak to children to discuss how we can use our outdoor space better, increase healthy eating and how children can contribute more in assemblies. We speak to our classes and then talk about what they say in student council.”
Our School Council is:
Year 6 – Bradley and Naimah
Year 5 – Kai and Zac
Year 4 – Enaya
Year 3 – Bobby
Year 2 – Gracjan
Year 1 – Mia
Our children are proud to represent the school in the Ivy Parliament, a thriving and influential body within Ivy Learning Trust. Every year, three new representatives from each Ivy school are elected to join the Parliament, which gives children a voice in educational and social issues.
Pupils meet regularly to discuss current themes and decide on an action plan for the year. In the past they have written to MPs, visited the Houses of Parliament, appeared in the local press and successfully lobbied to ban single-use plastic bottles from all Ivy schools. The Ivy Parliament is currently campaigning to make free fruit and vegetables available to all pupils.
Our Ivy Parliament members are Kai, Zac and Bradley.
