I look forward to working with you, our first meeting is Monday at 10:30.
Have a super weekend.
The sale on the playground after school was a huge success, thank you.
The Councillors raised £17.50 and sold out, so I’m afraid there won’t be another sale after school tomorrow.
Mrs Cooper was so pleased that she has offered to double it! THANK YOU!
I will meet with the Councillors to decide how they would like to invest the money and they will shortlist ideas ready to go to a school vote.
Thank you for your support.
Today our Councillors met with Mrs Cooper and Mrs Cameron to share their ideas, thoughts and suggestions. The Councillors discussed; The Queens Birthday celebrations, pets in school and eating lunch outside to name just a few.
One of the changes moving forward for our School Council, was to manage a small budget. Rather than give them money out of School Funds, we agreed it was better for them to earn it, to appreciate money and to agree how to spend it.
After the fantastic May Fair on Saturday, our Councillors would like to sell pocket money toys and snacks on the playground after school on Thursday and Friday.
Ollie from Year 1 concluded by saying that “how to spend the money should go to a vote” which we thought was a great idea.
Items will be £0.10p each and all money raised will be counted by the Councillors and spent on something which would benefit the school and more importantly the children.
Please do show your support.
Depending on how successful the sale is, we may repeat it after half term.
Have an enjoyable holiday and we are looking forward to a fun filled final half term!
The sun has been shining gloriously all day, perfect for our traditional May Day celebrations. The May Kings and Queens looked truly beautiful and radiant and all the children waited beautifully in the hall, for the arrival of the auspicious guests. Everyone sang our well-loved and traditional songs – your older children may remember them: “Cowboy Spring”, “Why does it happen each spring?”, “I love the flowers” and “Cuckoo”. The cuckoo song was the starting point for an interesting conversation with Green Class about cuckoos and their unusual habits.
This was a wonderful start to spring proper; and we all hope that this glorious weather continues.
Our School Councillors have been meeting every Friday at 8:40 to see how safe our children are when arriving at school.
These are their findings;
- Some children scoot down the path instead of walking
- Some parents cut through the car park instead of staying on the path
- Some parents park on the zig zag lines
- Some children ride their bikes in school
A message from our Councillors;
Irfaan “Please wait for the cars to pass through before crossing the car park entrance.”
Scarlett “Please do not park on the zig zag lines. Please can you walk more than driving.”
Umar “Please don’t go on the zig zag line, because you might get hit by a car.”
Anya “Make sure your children park their scooters.”
Some children walk across the flowers, please stick to the paths, our daffodils spell out CHIS, which we are very proud of.

Well done Councillors!
Our School Councillors have spent some of their lunchtime sorting the lost property box.
It’s overflowing with lovely body warmers, trainers, school jumpers and cardigans.
A message from our councillors – “please name your clothing and if you buy second hand clothing, remember to cross the old name out and put your child’s name in, thank you.”
