Here at Walton, our school council is managed by Mrs Baxter and Mrs Rowe. We are very fortunate to have dedicated children who form our school council. They work extremely hard as a whole team and in sub-teams to improve our school.
As part of our British Values curriculum we have made links between the roles within the council and parliament. As a school, we believe that enabling children to have first hand experiences helps to broaden their depth of knowledge of the real world.
The children were given the opportunity to write a letter of application to apply for their position on the school council. We then held an election in each class. Everyone in the school had a vote.
The elected candidates are as follows:
Caterpillars - Freya
Ladybirds - Archie
Dragonflies - Rosie
Bumblebees - Lottie
Arachnids- Gracie S
The school council meets each half term with either Mrs Baxter or Mrs Rowe. They also help out at events in school, for example the Macmillan Coffee morning.
