We encourage our children to take an active part in our school. Two children from each class from Year 1 upwards meet with the Deputy Headteacher half-termly to discuss matters of importance in the school. The aim of the school council is to improve the quality of provision for all children. Over the last couple of years the school council requested new playtime equipment; they took ownership of the project costing and ordering play equipment. To complete this exciting venture they also led school worship, introducing the new items and rules for playtimes.
