    Pupil Council

    The Pupil Council will be looking for its newest members. If your child is in Year 2 to 5 and interested in being our pupil voice, please do encourage them to think about their election campaign. If elected they will remain in the position for the school year and meet every Monday lunchtime in Miss Rackham’s office.
     
    For their campaign they will need to convince the children across the school that they deserve to be part of the team. What will they do to make the school better? What ideas have they got to share? They will also need to create a 1 minute video to persuade the children that they deserve to be elected. It needs to be clear, campaign ideas well thought-out and interesting. Make sure they keep to time (no longer than 2 minutes). The videos will be shared with their year group and they will vote for the best candidates. Start campaigning now and we will be looking forward to seeing applications very soon!
