We have a very active School Council at Birdsedge First School who are complete champions of pupil voice. We have two representatives for Years 1 - 5 with a Year 5 rep to support Reception. The group meet every week, led by Mrs Waddington and hold Class Councils with their individual classes weekly to feed into these school council meetings. The group listen to issues and problems raised by their peers and take on suggestions and ideas. They also plan for key events in school and fundraising activities.
Here are School Council in action, working hard to improve behaviour for all at playtimes - a concern that had been raised by children during Class Councils. The group led an assembly and agreed our 'Playtime Promises' with the school.
The School Council are also our 'Eco Council' who are leading school into achieving the Eco Schools Flag. We have completed an Environmental Review and working on an Action Plan we created from this.
