The School Academy Council plays an important role in our school. The Academy Councillors are elected yearly in Autumn Term by their peers and it consists of children from Year 1 to Year 6. The purpose of the School Academy Council is to ensure children’s voices and opinions are heard and acted upon. They also work collaboratively to organise fundraising events for the whole school to participate in where funds are raised for charities or school resources.
At our meetings we discuss important matters that arise in school. We organise fund raising activities and support good causes. We try to make our school standout from the rest.

Children in Need – Spotty Dotty Day
