Following the enthusiasm, hard-work and dedication demonstrated by Pupil Council this year, Mrs Sant has requested they take on a new challenge of also becoming the Eco-Committee in school. Of course they are straight to work and have already began with the promotion of eco education, looking at ways of improving our eco awareness and actions we can take as a whole school. They have presented a whole class assembly on the topic, provided each class with an eco-pack and have demonstrated how just one individual’s plastic footprint can have a devastating effect on our world. It’s exciting to see where they take this new project, watch this space!
This week saw the launch of our new lunchtime clubs, organised by Pupil Council and facilitated by our very own skilled pupils (teaching staff are present within classrooms). Clubs include Arts Club, Computing Club, PowerPoint Club and Storytime Club, something to suit all ages and interests we hope. A survey into attendees at the Storytime Club saw them rate the club overall as being ‘Brilliant!’ Miss I’Anson fed-back that Art Club was “…really well organised, they worked really quietly and the team running the club knew exactly what they wanted to achieve and helped all those that attended. They did a great job of taking the register, having their supplies ready and did a fantastic job tidying up. A great start to lunch time clubs.” What a wonderful start! With all clubs full we’re sure this success will continue and that the contentment of our children will continue to flourish.
Pupil Council have been busy liaising with pupils and staff to organise lunchtime clubs that will be run by the children. They have spoken to SLT, conducted a survey to discover what clubs pupils at our school would be interested in, and have been speaking with their peers to see who has the skills or motivation to facilitate these clubs. Watch this space to see how they develop this idea in Spring 2.
A huge thank you to our Pupil Council who this week have been involved in recruiting a new teacher team member. As always, their thoughts and contributions were invaluable.
Over the last couple of weeks Pupil Council have been busy organising the annual event ‘Goosnargh’s Got Talent.’ They have been responsible for acquiring acts, writing the script and compering the show, and what a show it was! They have done an exceptional job and standards were high- well done Pupil Council for a successful show that was thoroughly enjoyed by pupils, teachers and judges!
Pupil Council are busy making preparations for our annual talent show ‘Goosnargh’s Got Talent’ in aid of Children in Need; it’s always such a popular event across school. Keep an eye on the website for photos within the next few weeks.
This week in Pupil Council (PC) the reps have conducted a satisfaction survey on a random selection of pupils from across the school. The volunteers were then asked to complete a questionnaire on their level of satisfaction with how Pupil Council operates in school. Of those involved, 85% were happy to talk to PC reps and share their ideas, 67% would like to be further involved with PC projects, and 94% were happy with the job being done by Pupil Council. Last year’s PC reps were also asked to complete a questionnaire about their experiences within PC- 100% said they enjoyed being in PC, 86% would consider being in PC again, 86% felt valued by their peers and 100% felt valued by the teachers.
This week saw Pupil Council representatives make their first important decision- who do they want as their Chair and Vice Chair? Following an anonymous vote they elected Ruby as Chair and Isobel as Vice Chair– congratulations girls! Pupil Council reps will now be working on updating the World News Board, re-starting the Drop-in Service, and rolling out communication across their classes and the wider school.
Well, with Pupil Council elections over it’s time to announce our new line-up for this academic year. The children voted anonymously and have put their faith in the following pupils to do a great job in maintaining the school’s high standards this year.

Charity Club’s Salvation Army Christmas Appeal
Following our worship about the value of the month compassion, Charity Club launched their Christmas Appeal for the Salvation Army. Within 24 hours, families had filled three large boxes for the food bank and donated £38.
Thank you to all the girls and boys who helped to support the appeal.
