School Council

Our School Council is made up from members elected by each year group. The School Council meets once a month to share their thoughts and suggest new ideas for our school.

Children can give their suggestions and concerns to their class representatives who will present them at the next meeting.

We want our School Council to give children opportunities to:

  • Be involved in making decisions to improve school life for everyone.
  • Work more closely with staff in developing a caring school community.
  • Be able to voice the opinions of people in our class.

 

In the last twelve months our School Council have:

  • Planned an assembly and then organised the BIG Pedal initiative to get children cycling/scooting to school in March. Long Meadow School was placed in the top 300 schools nationally.
  • In May 2016, led the Walk to School Week where the whole school took part in Happy Feet Day which raised over £300 pounds for supporting the Walk to School Week initiative.
  • In June 2016 the children organised a Giant Walk where all the children made banners and walked within the local community to raise awareness trying to get motorists to travel at 20mph in residential areas.
  • In July, the School Councillors in Upper Key Stage Two took part in a community forum at the Local Council offices to discuss issues and ways of improving provision for children in Milton Keynes.

Congratulations to the new Long Meadow School Council for the academic year 2017-2018.
