At King’s Furlong Infant School and Nursery we value our School Council.
We have two representatives from each Year 1 and Year 2 class who are voted for by their class. Each child who wishes to stand for the School Council makes a short presentation to their class before the secret vote takes place.
The School Council work with our Acting Headteacher, Miss Noel, to decide on different actions and things to focus on to help develop the school. This year the School Council have been supporting our work to encourage children to walk to school and be safe on the roads. They are also working on our school charters, playground and lunchtime charters to make sure all our children know their rights and responsibilities in school.
We are extremely proud of our School Council and recently attended a cluster day with School Councils from other schools in Basingstoke. Our children made a presentation to over 100 people about our school values and then took part in a series of fantastic workshops.
Positive quotes from children about our School Council are:
“The School Council make sure people are safe.”
“We help make sure everybody in our school follows the rules.”
“We went on a trip to work with other School Councils to learn about our values.”
“The School Council are really important people and they have special badges.”
