We have regular meetings
We regularly meet with Mrs Dook to discuss the views of our class, arrange fundraisers and feedback any issues in school from a pupil perspective. We have suggestion slips in all classes and at every meeting we discuss the forms that have been filled in and see if the suggestions can be implemented in school. After each meeting we are given time to tell our class about our meeting and share any information.
We support charities
We decide which charity events we will support and raise awareness of their work by planning and delivering assemblies. This year we supported ‘Children in Need’ by wearing spotty clothing, doing a Joe Wickes work out, decorating biscuits and making a donation.
We help organise school initiatives
In November 2021 we arranged and judged a competition to design a poster showing how Crowlees keeps us safe. The winning posters are now around school and the overall winners from each key stage are on our website.
We Conduct an Annual Pupil Voice Survey (December 2020)
As a group we help Mrs Dook decide on the questions for the pupil voice survey and look at the results afterwards. in 2020
99% of the children from Y2-6 said ‘yes or usually’ to the question…
“The school council do their job of speaking on behalf of the class”
These are some of the comments the children made in the survey
Teachers do their jobs well to help us learn – Jack Y3
School does a good job at keeping us happy and safe – Eva Y4
There are a good variety of clubs so everyone can do what they want to – Emily Y5
I enjoy lessons, the teachers are kind and make me feel safe at school – Olivia Y5
The best thing about our school is that we have teachers you can talk to – George Y6
The survey’s results are shared with staff and governors and they discuss implementing our suggestions. This year the following changes have been made – having football nets on the playground and on the field in summer, using the field for morning play if it is dry, larger portions of food for KS2 children, repairs done to equipment round school, skipping ropes out at playtimes and the cabin selling snacks and drinks before and after school.
