Our 2016-17 School Council Members!
Key Stage 2
|Year 3||Year 4||Year 5||Year 6|
The KS2 School Council meet every Monday at 1.30pm. The KS2 school Council is made from a selection of children from Years 3-6. Each class has two children to represent them, usually a girl and a boy but not always. The members are voted in by their peers after they deliver a speech which informs the class what the individual’s intentions are if they become a School Councillor.
The Councillors gather their classes’ thoughts and opinions on particular topics that they are working on. Class mates can also raise awareness of a topic they feel needs to be addressed or suggestions they may have for council to discuss.

Over the last year, the School Council have worked on a number of projects within the school and also in the community in partnership with other agencies. Below are a few of our latest and last year’s projects:
- Raised £447.49 by dressing up as superheroes for Children in Need.
- Collected food the the Big Red Box to help families who were in need at Christmas.
- Met the Mayor of Lewisham.
- Helped with ideas to celebrate World Book Day.
- Worked on improving lunchtimes by meeting the kitchen team, making Hall rules and creating a lunch board so everyone knows what’s for lunch.
- Invited Emma and her dog Luna from Dogs Trust in to meet years 3-6. They told everyone about how the charity helps dogs and how to keep safe around dogs.
- Helped to raise money for Sports Relief.
- Meeting the school governors.
The School Buddies are a group of children from Years 3-6 who volunteer to take on a duty during their lunch hour once or twice a week.
The duties that the children carry out include, ensuring equipment is put away correctly, helping younger children to manage their trays and clearing away after themselves in the dinner hall, calling classes in for dinner etc.
Buddies wear arm bands when on duty so they can be easily identified and called upon by staff if needed.
