At Cherry Fold our School Council meet on a regular basis. Our School Council members represent each class across KS2. We have Class Council meetings in KS1. The School Council members are democratically voted into their post at the start of each academic year. To be elected as a member each candidate has to perform a speech outlining their reasons for wanting to be on School Council. Votes are then cast and the new member is elected. A deputy is also elected during the process.
3K – Rusne Zimantaite
3W – Abigail Mondesir - Dunwell
4D – Jessica Donohue - Deputy Chairperson
4B – Aleisha Wyllie
5G – Tolomey Steniford
5P – Charlie Little - Treasurer
6C – Riley Houghton
6M – Lily Pritchard - Chairperson
One of the first agenda items for School Council is to elect a Chairperson, Deputy Chairperson and a Treasurer. The School Council members discuss what is meant by each role and what the responsibilities will be. They are given a job description before performing a short speech outlining what they would bring to the role. The School Council then has a vote to elect each member.
One of the first jobs we did as a School Council was to send out a pupil questionnaire to get the pupil voice on our School.
We are currently voting in our classes for a charity that we can hold a fundraiser for in the Summer term.
