'Believe, Excite, Succeed, Together'

School Council 

Election Week 

In September, we held our very own Election week. Each class voted for 4 candidates to be put forward to be School Council members to represent their classes. During the week, we formed campaign groups and took part in various activites such as making rosettes, writing speeches, creating banners and learning about the role of a School Council. 

During this week, we discussed the importance of Justice, our church school value, and about the British value of Democracy. At Welbourn C of E Primary School, we know the importance of pupil voice and will ensure that the School Council play an important role in sharing the views and opinions of their peers,  making decisions about our school and organising special events and fundraising opportunities throughout the year. 

Election Day

As part of the Election day, all  candidates delivered speeches, supported by their campaign groups then took part in a secret ballot. We had a special visit from our local MP, Caroline Johnson.

School Council meetings

Each Week the School Council hold School Council meetings with Mrs SEiffel and have elected special roles such as the Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary. After each meeting, the members of the council feedback to their classes and ask questions about the topics that they have discussed. 

The School Council planned and organised a successful Children in Need Day, raising over £150.

Easter 2019

School Council looked into ways to raise money for new books for our brand new school library! They brainstormed ideas and decided to organise a raffle.  

They then sold tickets, created posters and drew the raffle, raising £70. The School Council then spoke to the children in their classes to find out which books they would like to see in their library, and ordered them.
