This is the School Council board that has recently been updated with posters that the children from School Council have created... This shows how excited we are for the History of Drapers day...
The following children have been showing commitment to the School Council and attending as often as possible: Jen, Charlie, Isabelle, Alise, Isaac, Liam, Leo, Isabella, Jayme-Lee, Joshua, Ronnie.

School Council Trip
We are planning to go to on a trip to Napier Primary School, we have already started to plan our trip Napier. We hope to meet their School Council group and see some of our previous teachers who now work there. During this trip we hope to inform the Napier School Council group what we are currently working on. Napier's School Council is being run by one of our old teacher's. We hope that we will get a tour round their school and we cant wait to see what the wonderful school will hold.

We are organising a Toy Sale to start our School Council budget. This budget is to make the school a better place for what the children would like.
On Thursday 4th February 2016 there will be a toy sale in the small hall at 3.15pm.

It would be great if the toys are:
Have no missing pieces.

Pupil Voice 2015 - 2016
We encourage the children of Drapers Mills Primary Academy to have their say about school matters. This has been made possible by the formation of the School Council. The Council has been elected by the pupils themselves and has an important role to play in the development and improvement of the school for the pupils. We have an active School Council with representatives from year 2 to year 6; all of them voted for by their class peers. Within the council there is a Chair which is rotated on a weekly basis to allow children to build confidence with their interpersonal skills.
Since forming the School Council in September, the children have been actively engaged in planning and organising a KS2 fruit cafe which runs during play times each morning. The children have considered not only what to stock but also consider the need to make a profit to ensure more produce can be purchased to maintain the shop beyond the first week.
They have been involved in choosing new names for the school house system (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales) and selecting the house captains. Furthermore, through a democratic Key Stage 2 vote, a Head Boy and Head Girl were selected. Both these children, along with their deputies attend School Council on a weekly basis.
If you have a good idea for the school, let your calss School Council representatives know and they can raise it at the next meeting!
There will be updates every term to how the School Council are getting on and event information.
