School Council

 

The school coun­cil con­sists of two pupil rep­re­sen­ta­tives from each class.  One child is elected by their fel­low class mates and the other by the class teacher.  School Coun­cil meet at least once a month with the head­teacher and mem­bers of the gov­ern­ing body to dis­cuss and vote on new ideas.

Rich­mond Coun­cilors’ take an active part in the school devel­op­ment.  Some of the things we can be thank­ful to them for are:

*  Speed restric­tions on Stoke Road and the zebra cross­ing that have been intro­duced fol­low­ing School Coun­cil request­ing Com­mu­nity Speed­watch involve­ment.  This was done in response to a sur­vey con­ducted by the school coun­cil with regard to how safe the chil­dren feel on the way to and from school.

*School Coun­cil have been rep­re­sented at the Build­ing Progress Meet­ing where key deci­sions have been made about the con­struc­tion and resourc­ing of the new build­ing.  This meet­ing con­sists of senior staff from Will­mott Dixon, rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Leices­ter­shire County Coun­cil as well as our School Coun­cil representatives.

*School Coun­cil mem­bers are involved with learn­ing walks in order to mon­i­tor and eval­u­ate the effec­tive­ness of teach­ing and learn­ing policies.
