West End School Council meet regularly to discuss upcoming events, fund raising ideas and how the pupils can participate in the everyday life of the school.
School Council gives every child a voice!
School Council is made up of pupils from Year 1 to Year 6, with Reception set to join us later on in the school year. We have a Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Communications Officer and Treasurer. The children love the various roles of managing the meetings, putting information on the school website, composing letters, counting money and arranging events. Following our recent elections we are pleased to announce that two pupils from each class were elected by their peers to represent them at the School Council Meetings.
Our School Council also work closely with the Horsforth Cluster Council. We support lots of national and local charities including Children in Need and Red Nose Day, St. Georges Crypt and The Horsforth Food Bank and The Real Junk Food Project. These are to name just a few we are very excited about lots more projects to follow........ so watch this space.
Following in class elections, our new Digital Leaders have been chosen! Have a look at the slideshow below to learn more about them! In their first term, they have been focusing on E-Safety. They helped to deliver assemblies to Key Stage 1 and 2 during Safer Internet Day and then conducted interviews with children in the afternoon based around the theme of 'Consent' and what 'Permission' means when using the internet. Next, they will be reviewing how we use technology such as the Learn Pads in lessons and how this could be improved.
