Our School Council represents the views of al our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
A new school council is elected each year. Children in classes Y3-Y6 vote for the nominee they think would be the best representative for their class.
The School Council meet with Miss Livesey and Miss Veldon every other Monday after school to express their views and to make decisions. Each half term they also discuss with the headteacher their proposals and provide an update of their meeting agendas.
Our School Council are very keen to help make our school the best it can be!

Today, School Council spent todays meeting packing the shoe boxes for Samartians Purse-OCC. The children organised all the items donated by the children into hypgiene products, toys and school supplies. Each box included many exciting items and a letter from a member of council about themselves.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents and children who donated an item. The response we had was incredible. After making several parcels, we have decided to donate some items to the children ward in Burnley Hospital.
Well done Team Reedley!
We've done it again

Shoe Box Appeal
This weeek, until Friday 23rd we are holding a collection of several items which we will make into parcels (presents) that will be delivered to children. The Charity Samaritans Purse have a fundraising project called 'Operation Christmas Child', where our donated parcels will be delivered to victims of war, poverty, famine disease and natural disaster.
We are asking children throughout school to donate an item such as gloves, scarves, pencils, books, toothbrushes etc.
There is a full list of suggested items on their website. Please have a look by clicking on the link below.

School Council have done a fantastic job at collecting data about behaviour in our school. Each member was given a clipboard with a table on. This table had all the different areas on as subheadings which were established last week. They monitored behaviour during lunchtimes, playtimes, in the dinner hall, hometime routines and behaviour within class. Their task this week was to collate this data and produce a report which will be passed onto Mrs Bell and the governors.
Monday 29th October 2018
School Council were joined by Mrs Bell and Mrs Gorrell to discuss behaviour in our school. Mrs Bell has asked for a report based on the behaviour within and around school. So a list was made of all the ares in school that the councilllors agreed could be inproved and some that work really well. Over the next few days, School Council will be gathering information and monitoring how children walk throughout school, line up and how well hometime routines work.

The children were please to hear what our first fundraiser is taking place in aid of Wear It Pink! on Friday 19th October 2018. The memebers were informed that it was suggested that eventhough it is called 'Wear It Pink!', children are allowed to wear pink, orange or red, so it's more accessible for parents. The children agreed :)
Don't forgot your £1.
Having a school tuck shop was suggested by several members were children would be able to buy a healthy snack at playtime. The councillors discussed this is great depth and are gathering research in regards to prices and producing a presentation which they will present to Mrs Bell very soon.
