At Shavington, we are very keen to make sure our children have a voice. This is achieved at our school through children taking part in the School Council and our working towards the Investors in Pupils accreditation.
The School Council is a group of twelve children made up of two representatives from each class from Year 1 to Year 6 and run by Mrs Watson. The group meet every three weeks and discuss issues related to all aspects of school and community life. The issues raised in the past have been varied and all issues are taken seriously and addressed where ever possible. School council have been involved in the new school lunch system, school playground improvements, trying to make the toilets smell sweeter, rotas for football and den building, creating and implementing suggestion boxes, organising a school talent contest along with many other issues.
This academic year there will be a focus on not only improving and having a say about what goes on in school, but also the village of Shavington. We have built a link with the Neighbourhood Plan, who were eager to get the local primary school on board.
All classes from year 1 to 6 are also holding elections for their new school council reps. Children will have the opportunity to put themselves forward to represent their class giving reasons why they think they would be good at the job. This is also a democratic process.
