At Ellwood School, we believe that it is important for the children to have a voice and be given the opportunity to take on responsibilities linked to school improvement.
Willow, Sycamore, Beech, Chestnut and Oak classes vote annually for two School Councillors, who represent them at our monthly School Council meetings.
Class Councils, where children discuss standing items such as their happiness and safety as well as ideas and comments for school improvements and fund raising, are held in advance of School Council meetings. The School Councillors then bring their notes from Class Councils to School Council meetings, where they are discussed further. Where possible, the children are encouraged to take responsibility for organising class and school events.
School Council 2020 - 2021
Congratulations to the new members of our School Council for this year. We look forward to hearing their ideas in meetings, where they will represent their classes.
We would like to share our new elected chair, secretary and treasurer:
- Riley in Year 6 has been elected as chair of School Council
- George in Year 5 has been elected as secretary
- Niall in Year 4 has been elected as treasurer.
We are very excited for these children to take on their new roles and we know that they will do a great job.
2018 - 'Ellwood's Got Talent'
At the end of the Autumn Term, Mollie and Emily organised an extremely successful 'Ellwood's Got Talent' show. Children were able to show off their various talents in classes, with one participant making it through to the finals in each of four categories.
An amazing total of £55 was raised to put towards the School Council's chosen charity for the year, British Heart Foundation.
It is hoped that they will organise a further event in the summer term.
