Our school council is made up of members of each class and these children are elected in to post, other pupils are appointed to School Council. They have a very important role to play in school life as they are the voice of all the children. If they feel there is something that should be done or needs improving the school council can approach the Head Teacher and discussions begin! Some of the things they have been involved in include reviewing school dinner menus, deciding on playground equipment and games and were even involved in interviewing the Headteacher.
We have a very active School Council who meet fortnightly to look at and make decisions about how to make further improvements to the school.
Two children in each class from years 1-6 are elected each year by their class counterparts.
The School Council members listen very carefully to the opinions, concerns and suggestions of their classmates and work as a team to put together the agenda for the following meeting.
The School Council plays a very important role at Theydon Bois Primary School and the members are very proud of the following achievements:
- Choosing the film titles for the PTA’s ‘Movie and a Munch’.
- Suggesting new extra curricular activities to Mrs Lewis which has resulted in a regular Design and Technology Club.
- Continuous fundraising for local charities.
- They were even involved in interviewing the Headteacher.
