The School Council in the Upper School consists of a representative from each class who attends a meeting each half term to vote on proposals made by class groups. School council is currently led by Elmwood’s class teacher; Sam.
Our school councillors are:
Cian (Beechwood), Kasey (Elmwood), Ben W (Orchard), Olivia (Pinewood), Owen (Ashwood)
We held our first meeting together in October 2021 to share our ideas and opinions on topics such as ‘How can we improve playtimes for Upper School?’, including a discussion about what clubs there should be and ‘What jobs could the Sixth Form pupils help with around school?’ We also discussed the important Christmas Card Design Competition. The best card design will be chosen to be the Woodlands Christmas card this year.
After each meeting, the minutes are printed for the school councillors to present to their classes and to feedback what we discussed and to ask questions, such as ‘What would your favourite lunchtime club be?’
