School Council

At Trafalgar Community Infant School, we have a dedicated School Council which consists of two elected members from each Key Stage One class. 

The School Council meets with the Deputy Headteacher and Mrs Morris {school governor} on a fortnightly basis to evaluate and improve current practice at Trafalgar. They are then responsible for communicating this to their peers, teacher and learning assistant back in class. Last year the School Council organised the design of a floor mounted mosaic in the maze area with the help of local artist Tamar Rose. They organised each class designing a collage picture to improve the toilets in Key stage 1. They chose to raise money through ‘Toilet twinning’ and classes voted for which country they wanted their toilets to be built, they chose a school toilet in Kenya and a family toilet in the Ivory coast. They conducted a health and safety walks with our Premises Officer Mr Tugnutt. Children in Sky suggested raising money for refugees and organised a cake sale which was very successful.

School Council members each have their own badge and clipboard for collecting the views of their peers.

Before and after each School Council meeting a circle time is dedicated to discussing agenda items in each classroom. School Council members use this forum to gather ideas and opinions and then feedback following the meetings. School Council members are also encouraged to report on decisions and deliver messages to the whole school during assemblies.

There is a School Council noticeboard near the main reception area which displays photographs of the School Council representatives, minutes and agendas, and the date of the next meeting. We also display an action plan so that the children can view what is currently being acted upon.
