What is the School Council?
Our School Council works to make improvements to our school and the way we do things at Ringway. We believe that each child should have a voice and that our voices should be heard. We are always on the lookout for ways we could improve our school for every pupil. Each member gets a chance to speak and have their thoughts heard and when we have finished, we vote on the best ideas and then we can start working on the changes.
Who are the School Councillors?
Every year we run an election campaign to vote for a new representative from each class. A good School Councillor will speak up at the meetings and raise the issues and interests of their class mates. They will also feedback to their class about the meetings and be role models for the rest of the school.
Meet our school councillors for this academic year. We recently had our first meeting and Miss Wood has been blown away with the passion, enthusiasm and dedication that the children have shown already. They have some fantastic ideas for ways we can improve our school even more! All the staff are excited to see what this year's school council will achieve.
UK Parliament Week 2023
In November we celebrated UK Parliament Week. Each year group looked at different aspects of parliament, democracy and how our country is governed. Each child had the opportunity to complete tasks and ask questions to develop their knowledge of the world they live in.
During Parliament Week, all children from Year 1 to Year 6 had the opportunity to experience democracy in action. Each class voted for their School Council Member by coming to our polling station and casting their vote on a specially designed ballot paper. The children really enjoyed the experience and we hope that our newly elected members will thrive in their new role.
We have worked with Mr Taylor to give our thoughts on the new vision and values of our school. Throughout the year we will work tirelessly to make sure that the children of Ringway have their voices heard.
