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.
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 Mrs Wilkinson and Mrs Ellis every other Friday during 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!

School Council Tour
This week we have had a visit from an author in a wheelchair, Grandad Wheels. School Council have been doing lots of work on Equality and Inclusion so asked Brian if he would mind helping us to test how accessible school is to wheelchair users. Three Year 6 School Council members gave Brian a very detailed tour of the school. They were fabulous! We are now happy to report that Brian was able to access all of our school and said how impressed he was with the mature answers the children gave to the scenarios he set them. Here are a few pictures.
The School Council members had such a good time this week putting up and decorating the christmas tree in our enterance hall. If you havent seen it nip in and have a look.
Here are some photos of us decorating.

School Council highlighted a issue that the children of Reedley School were unhappy with the school lunch menu. After a discussion School Council decided to monitor the issue. We then discussed our findings with Mrs Gorrell and Tracey from the kitchen. Mrs Gorrell and Tracey then worked with LCC and shared with us a new propsed menu which we gave a big thumbs up. You can find the new menu here and it on a three week rolling rota.

Today School Council met with members of Building Bridges project and members of St Luke's Church. We are working together in a project to bring the community together.
School Council would like to raise the profile of an event happening at in the Church Hall in April, so have decided to set a creative challenge to the classes for homework over Easter. The competetion is for the children to design a poster to publicise the community event. Watch out for the winning posters being put up and shared around our community.

During one of our school council meetings the children discussed wanting a Christmas tree. The children came up with the idea of writing a letter to local companies to see if we could get a tree donated to school. This letter was written by the children and was posted off to local companies. The very next day we received a call to school from a company called LBS based in Trawden, Colne. LBS donated to school a 7ft Christmas tree which Mrs Ellis went to collect. We were very excited today as school council decorated the tree and invited a special guest (Ms Tracey), to perform an official light switch on via zoom for all the children to see. We are so proud of our tree! Thank you LBS!

During our School Council meeting this week, we went to observe the road safety around our school at home time. After being outside and watching the parents, children and vehicles around school, we went into our meeting and discussed what we had seen, this was both positive and negative. In the new year, we will be inviting Ms Tracey and Mrs Gorrell into our meeting to discuss what we found and what we would like to happen next.
