Here at Walton, our children have a very big and important voice across our school. We have a number of ambassadors of school ranging form sports crew to Blue Iris Ambassadors to our School Council.
The School Council is managed by 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. At the beginning of each term, each class votes in their class representative.
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 elected candidates are as follows:
Hedgehogs – Eva & Alfred
Squirrels – Ada & Tom
Owls – Oscar & Sam
Foxes – Leon & Ernest
Badgers – Scarlett & Shannon
The school council meets half termly with Mrs Rowe to discuss whole school ideas and improvements. The main focus of our meetings are safeguarding and mental health and wellbeing. They also help out at events in school, for example the Macmillan Coffee morning and interviewing for new staff.
