Welcome to Clapgate School Council!
On this page we will be keeping you up to date with everything that the school council has been up to. This year the council will be made up of councillors from year 2 - 6 and will be supported by Miss Jones. They will be looking at how the British Values can implemented at Clapgate, plan different events and listen to their classmates advice about how we can make our playtimes even better!
The school council were set a task by Mrs Singleton to share the different British Values to their class mates. The school council set up and wrote a script for the KS1 and KS2 assemblies and did an amazing job delivering this. The council also shared a competition which asked the children of Clapgate to design cards for a new incentive. The cards will be sent to a professional printer and then 1 pupil in each class will be awarded a card when they have shown one of the British Values.
We have already received some fantastic ideas for our British Values cards. These are just a small sample of what we have received (please watch this space for some more soon!).
Thank you to everyone who has entered, we still have one more week to enter your designs.
A visit from local councillor Paul Truswell
In the last week of school, the school council had an extra member. We were joined by Councillor Paul Truswell who discussed the importance of democracy and how it can be used to ensure all pupils' voices were considered when making important decisions. Following the meeting, we decided to add a suggestion box for each year group to use. Once these are made the children will be sharing how theses can be used with their class mates.
The school council have been considering how we can listen to the views and ideas of the pupils in Clapgate. The school council have decided that they will be making a suggestion box for each year group which we can check weekly and discuss in our meetings. This are already looking fantastic.
