Who is the School Council?
Our school council consists of class representatives who are elected every term to represent their peers.
Each class has a Councillor and a Deputy Councillor.
How are the reps nominated?
Pupils are nominated and their names are put forward in each class.
The rest of the pupils then vote anonymously. This process happens termly.
Our ideas and discussions
We have discussed ways to improve our year areas and further learning opportunities.
Our ideas include more equipment for break times, DVDs for indoor breaks, a wider selection of fiction books and more trips and visits.
The School Council have shared their views about the school; we have discussed enjoyment, aspects of learning, lessons and additional activities.
During the last few academic years, the School Council have organised various charity events and school events.
These have included: The Bishop of St Albans’ Harvest Appeal, Red Nose Day, ‘Gunge The Teacher’ for Comic Relief and designing the courtyard areas. They also support the Friends' with their events throughout the year.
The Eco Council consists of 13 class representatives - one from each class.
Children nominate themselves and their peers vote anonymously to pick a rep.
The reps are elected once per year.
The Eco Council’s aim is to make The Thomas Coram Church of England School more sustainable by reducing its energy use and increasing the amount of recycling carried out.
We currently hold the Bronze Award from EcoSchools and are working towards the Silver Award.
For the first time this year we have got a Kindness Ambassador in each class.
Each class thought really hard about who in their class would be a good role model for spreading kindness and they were elected to be the Ambassadors.
They meet regularly and think of initiatives to make our school a place full of Kindness.
One of our Ambassadors had a meeting with 52 Lives - School of Kindness and Kindness Ambassadors from other schools and it was really interesting to see what other schools are planning.
We will update you on our Kindness Journey as the year goes on.
