The School Council is an important part of Trotts Hill and the children feel proud to be elected. In July, the class vote for their representatives for the next academic year. All children from Year 2 to Year 6 are given the opportunity to stand for election. After making a speech to their class, their peers vote. This is an important part of children’s experience of British Values and a democratic process in school.
Year 6 children also help to lead Sharing Assemblies on Fridays. Our School Council is a member of Stevenage Schools Parliament and the Year 6 School Councillors attend regular meetings.
This year our School Council will focus on:
- Showing visitors around the school.
- Our local area and recycling
- Stevenage 70th Birthday
- “Love in a Box” for the Food Bank
- Hertfordshire Great School Week
March 2017 meeting:
In March we have been looking at litter picking. We went around the school to collect litter and see what we could recycle.
We also helped children with their Reading on World Book day. Every hour a member of the School Council rang a bell and the whole school had to stop what they were doing to read their books! It was great fun.
November 2016 meeting:
Fix My Street
We have decided to support Fix My Street in order to help parks and recreation facilities for local children.
October 2016 meeting:
We had an assembly to celebrate Stevenage’s 70th birthday. At lunch we all got a slice of Stevenage’s birthday cake!
