Postponement of 2020-2021 school council elections
Unfortunately, due to the on-going Covid 19 pandemic, the election of new school councillors for the 2020-2021 academic year will be delayed until further notice.
The councillors are elected from a range of classes and year groups, and with the bubble system we have implemented in school, to ensure our children remain safe, we cannot proceed at the present time.
The School Council at Our Lady Immaculate Catholic Primary School are drawn from pupils from Y2 to Y6. They are democratically elected by their peers in exciting elections, which are held every September.
The aim of the council is to collect the views of children around the school, discuss ways to make our school even better and contribute to final decision making with Mrs Sergeant, Mr Cotton and Miss Whittaker.
We meet on a weekly basis to discuss issues such as: how to keep ourselves safe, how to improve facilities around school, regular meetings with the school cook to make the lunch menu even better, and carrying out surveys to acquire pupil voice.
Every summer the school council visit The Houses of Parliament in London to gain experience democracy in action. With exciting workshops, meeting our local MP, and watching debates within the House of Commons; we always manage a trip to Downing Street and a river-side picnic beside the Thames.
