Puss Bank School and Nursery
We have two councils, one for KS1 and one for KS2. We have two representatives from each class on the KS1 council and the same for KS2!
Mr Branskey is in charge of the Student Council in KS1.
Mrs Smith is in charge of the Student Council in KS2.
Each council meets once a week, as often as possible to discuss any issues that have arisen at class council meetings. We get asked lots of questions and give pupil opinion quite a lot to teachers when they are working on new things to make our school even more fabulous.
Once a term we meet altogether to discuss whole school issues.
KS2 Student Council for 2019-2020
Minnie, Freya, William and Joe
Amelia, Owain, Jocelyn and Gabriel
Freya, Willem, Carlos and Olivia
Evie, George, Eloise and Ava
Both councils met and we discussed having a project that we could call our legacy when we move year groups in the Summer. There was a lot of ideas but everyone decided that we wanted to improve the appearance of outdoors by planting more flowers in tubs and planters around the playgrounds. We decided we needed money to pay for equipment and plants, so Mr Bransky suggested that we could have an 'everyone wear green day' and a cake sale so that is exactly what we did! We have raised some money to get us started and will have another attempt at raising funds in the future!!
The Mayor of Macclesfield, Janet Jackson came to school to talk to us about how and why she became the Mayor of our town. She was absolutely lovely and we had a very informative assembly learning all about her robes and the Mayoral chain.
She also announced the names of the children on the new Student Council in KS2.
We have a new student council who are amazing!!!!
We held our elections. Everyone in KS2 had the chance to vote. They had to put a cross or a tick next to the names of two children in their class.
Welcome back to school!
This term we will elect a new student council.
If you want to be a student councillor, you need to stand for election. Just like in the British Parliament we hold democratic elections. Anyone who thinks they would make a good candidate based on what their class thinks are the characteristics of a fantastic class representative can put their name forward to their class teacher. They will have to make a poster and deliver a speech to their class to show they can speak in front of people, listen to and answer questions.
Then,each class will vote for their class student councillors- we like to have a boy and girl from each class so we represent everyone.
We announce the new council members in Friday assembly.
Good Luck everyone!
Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
UNCRC Article 12- Every child has the right to say what they think in all matters affecting them, and to have their views taken seriously.
