The School Council at Old Cleeve First School is a representative group of students who have been proposed and elected by their peers to represent their views and raise issues within the school. In September, each class elects two representatives, a male and a female. The School Council propose and take forward initiatives and projects on behalf of their peers. This year, the school council will be part of the steering group for the Rights Respecting School Award.

The object of an effective school council is to help students to:
Enjoy and feel empowered by their education.
Feel that the school responds to their needs and views.
Have the opportunity to let adults know their feelings and opinions about issues that affect them
Have a say in regards to decisions, and to play an active role in making their school a better place.
Develop their skills through participation.
Next half term we are going to be supporting Children in Need on Friday 18th November. If you have any ideas for fundraising or events, please see a member of the school council.
Last year, for Children in Need we raised over £600.
It would be fantastic if this year we could raise a similar amount or more! We look forward to hearing all of your fantastic ideas.
