The School Council is made up of two Councillors from each class in Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Each Councillor is elected by their class at the start of the school year and is the voice of the class and school. Councillors usually meet every other Thursday and meetings are chaired by Mrs Stevenson.

School Council Events from 2018/2019
Mental Health Awareness day
During the Autumn term we organised a Mental Health awareness day on the 10th October 2018. Everybody wore yellow clothing as a symbol of recognition – ‘Hello Yellow’. We ensured that every class discussed the importance of looking after our mental as well as our physical health. We all felt much more positive for seeing such a bright and sunny colour around the school and confident with our strategies to help with caring for our mental health as well as others. We began our 100 days of happiness logs at school to help us find the positives in every day.
As a School council we wanted to do something different, so we decided to create a whole school display of a silhouette soldier surrounded by the entire school’s poppy creations. It looked wonderful and it was displayed in our reception for all of our community to see Roundwood’s tribute to those who bravely fought during the wars.
We also encouraged Roundwood Primary school’s families to share stories from War time experiences. We have collated these and created a book which can be read in our library. Thank you to those who provided us with these wonderful reads.
In November it was Anti-bullying week. All classes took part in lots of learning around the National theme ‘Choose Respect’ and we decided to organise a wear odd socks day on Monday 12th November 2018.
Children in Need
On Friday 16th November 2018 the School council had asked all members of Roundwood Primary School to dress up in spots! Our favourite efforts were those with face paint and body paint! It was great to see such an array of colour and creativity from everyone. We also completed a cake sale after school and this combined with the fancy dress helped to raise over £400!
During the spring term we focused on our views of lunch times, Just Talk and Comic relief.
Just Talk week
During 4th-8th February 2019 the whole school took part in a week of lessons to help with looking after our Mental well-being. We tried lots of activities such as yoga, games and delved further into the Zones of regulation too.
On March 15th 2019 it was Sport relief. As a School we worked together to help raise money for this wonderful charity. We dressed up with crazy hair, held competitions like pin the red nose of Mrs Webb and design a red nose competition. It was a fun filled day. Below are our Red nose design winners:
C1 – Malin
C1/2 – Anna
C2 – Natalie
C3 – William
C3/4 – Scarlett
C4 – James
C5 – Lucy
C5/6 – Simone
C6 – Molly
We will be completing a pupil survey of our school and meeting with Mrs Webb to discuss our findings including any possible improvements to be made.
