Shakespeare Primary School: School Council
At Shakespeare Primary School we value pupil voice and our School Council Reps provide the opportunity for all pupils’ thoughts and ideas to be heard.
Each year, our reps are chosen from all Year 1 to Year 6 classes. The new reps meet every two weeks on a Wednesday afternoon to discuss current issues and ways to help improve our school. Part of our work in the first meeting is to come up with our School Council promise.
‘We are the SPS School Council and we promise that we will always take care of all pupils, adults and visitors in our school. We will help to make our school a better place by making learning fun and sharing the ideas of all pupils. We will try to make lunchtimes more fun and help to organise more after school clubs that you can take part in. We promise that we will always do our best to make sure that we represent you.’
If you are interested in finding out about what we are up to, then please look at our latest agenda either on our website or School Council board in the main corridor in school.
Here is a list of some of our recent projects and successes:
- Designed and launched an ‘SPS against Bullying’ card
- Surveyed the pupils at school to help form our new Travel Plan
- Run the fruit tuck shop each day
- Met with our local MP Johnny Mercer and hosted him for a ‘Council Lunch’ in school
- Surveyed the playground to help choose and provide new games and activities to improve lunchtime play
We always welcome any thoughts and input as to how we can do our jobs more effectively. Please drop a comment in our comments folder on the School Council
