School Council

Launde Primary School Council meet regularly to help ensure the school is the best it can be. Pupils from each Year 2 - Year 6 class are nominated by each class to represent them at the meetings.We like working with children from different year groups, as part of our 'Launde family'.

The latest meeting information:

September 2021

22/9/21 In our meeting today we introduced ourselves. We shared the different ways that the children had been voted into their positions as class councillor. We talked about the role of School Councillor and how important it is to share their ideas at the meeting and the ideas of their classmates. At our school it is really important that our children have a voice and the School Council is one way in which we can listen to our children and act upon their needs. We also heard about two of the ways that the school council last year made a difference to the school. The School Councillors then had a go at speaking in front of an audience by introducing themselves to the group and which class they came from. They all listened carefully to each other too which was very pleasing. 

Next meeting: 12.45pm on Wednesday 6 October 

October 2021

6/10/21 Today we chatted about how the term was going for the children. They are really enjoying all the lessons that the teachers are delivering. Science, Geography and art were favourites! The children were concerned about some litter on the playground. They agreed that they would tell all of their class to make sure litter is put in the rubbish bins. They asked for an extra bin on the field. They had some great ideas about the different activities that could take place and were glad Year 5 play leaders were in place again this year. They also would like recycling bins in all classrooms and a bin by the ball court - Ms Priddey will look into the costs of this and will talk to the MDA lead about equipment at lunchtimes.

Next meeting: 12.45pm Wednesday 27 October 

27/10/21 Some of the school council in Y2-Y4 were involved in interview process for the Trust. They worked with Miss Sandhu to compile a list of questions for the candidates and then had the opportunity to ask the questions directly to the candidates today. The questions were very sensible and in fact, one of the candidates asked whether a member of staff had come up with them as they were so impressed with the level of questions. Well done team!

Next meeting: 12.45pm Wednesday 3 November

November 2021

3/11/21 Today we discussed all the important events that are happening for the rest of the term such as Children In Need on 19 November, Remembrance assembly on 11 November and Christmas jumper day for the Save the Children charity on the 10 December. We talked about the important COP26 event that is taking place in Glasgow at the moment. The children agreed to tell their classes about three differences that we could make at school to help reduce the resources that we use 1) turning lights off when we leave the room, 2) making sure our litter is put in bins and not left on the floor as this may harm wildlife living in our school grounds, 3) looking after school and home items we use to make them last longer - including labelling school jumpers so they are not left in lost property and then parents have to buy more jumpers. The School Council are keen to make a difference - well done!

Next meeting: 12.45pm Wednesday 17 November 

17/11/21

Today we reminded ourselves of the three pledges we had set last time and the children agreed to complete posters to go around the school. We discussed Children in Need activities that they will remind the classes about and Christmas Jumper Day on 10 December. 

Next meeting: 12.45pm on Wednesday1 December
