Colneis School Council
Both Fairfield and Colneis have regular School Council meetings. Representatives from each class will meet together each term with a member of staff to discuss issues about school life. Each representative will bring to the meeting the thoughts and ideas of their class, and discuss possible solutions to the issues on the agenda. Topics have included the purchase of play time equipment, changes to the school day, the outside area and lunch times. The discussions are always lively and productive and we try to incorporate the children’s ideas as much as possible in the running of the school.
The School Council at Colneis, currently led by Mrs Steele, has been particularly active over the last year and a half, and has been recognised in the ‘Speakers School Council’ competition 2015 for their work to ensure that children are staying safe on the roads and paths, and for all the primary research that they have carried out for Felixstowe Town Council, Places for People Leisure and young people’s mental health.
In addition to the school councillors, the Eco Warriors work hard on ecological issues in and around the school, including taking a lead in our recycling efforts.
