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 Fairfield School council representatives from September 2018 are
Year 1 –
Year 2 –
In the autumn term, the children met to introduce themselves and discuss the role and responsibilities of being a school council representative, They shared ideas as to why they felt they were suitable for the role and there was a group discussion about the qualities that help to make you a good representative like being friendly, a good listener, someone that is honest and sensible and being confident when speaking around others.
The school council representatives are ready for their first active meeting where they can collect and share views from their peers and help to find solutions and put forward ideas to issues raised by the Senior Leadership team.
