School Council 2015-2016

smileyWelcome smiley


Our School Council is made up of 8 pupils who are fully committed to improving our school by listening to the views and opinions of their peers. 

Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community. At Cloverlea, every class in Key Stage 2 chooses two representatives. We hold regular meetings to discuss ways in which we can improve our school. The Councillors will present the views of their classmates. They will then feedback to the school through this website, in class discussions and assemblies and, using the School Council noticeboard.


If you are a pupil at Cloverlea and would like to put your ideas forward you can do this by:


  • speaking to a school council representative
  • writing your ideas on a suggestion form which are kept in your classrooms


The school council will also be involved in organising fundraising events and competitions.


Voting for council members has now taken place. So I would like to introduce our school council members for the year 2015-2016:

Our action plan this year is to: 


1) Introduce a whole school recycling scheme and improve the school environment



2) Support  a charity and hold special events to raise funds 



3) Improve our cloakrooms



As a school, we need to think about ways in which we can help the environment. We would like to encourage children to recycle rubbish by using the correct bins. 


As many children in the school now drink milk at break times, we need to start recycling milk bottles to cut down on waste. There will be two new bins in the playground in which children can put their empty milk bottles and bottle tops.


We are also going to hold a competition to design a poster to encourage people to recycle. These winning designs will be placed around school and used to decorate our recycling bins. We are going to choose one winner from each class (years 1 - 6). These children will each receive a small prize and be invited to take part in litter-picks to improve our school grounds.
