School Council

school councilThe School Council are currently looking for ways to improve our school. We currently have five teams.

The Eco Team (supported by Miss Bown) are looking at ways in which we could make eco-bricks to try to reduce the amount of waste we have at school.

The Charities Team (supported by Mrs Morley) have decided which charities they would like to support this year. As part of the school’s Lenten promise, every Friday in Lent different classes will come to school in non-uniform in return for a donation of produce for Bridgwater Food Bank. Shark class are also leading a big fundraising project to help sponsor a child to go to school at Uphill Junior School in Uganda.

The Collective Worship Team (supported by Mrs Morley) are using the ‘Lighting the Candle’ resource to help improve Collective Worship. So far they have reflected on the sense of space and introduced cushions to sit on, monitored the impact of Worship and helped lead our special Lenten AGAPE service.

The Computing Team (supported by Miss Bown) have led an assembly on E-Safety on Safer Internet Day and are training to be IT technicians.

The Playground Team (supported by Mrs Day) have designed the rules to help keep us safe on our new adventure playground and are looking at ways to further develop lunchtime playtimes.
