School Council

The Radstone's School Council 

The aim of The Radstone’s School Council is to involve pupils in decision making in and around the school. We help organise and direct fundraising projects and whole-school events as well as raising the profile of how children and schools can be involved in the wider community. On such matters, we discuss any points raised and vote on a course of action. At the beginning of the year the Key Stage 2 children write speeches to say why they would like to be on the council school and present these to their class mates. Up to 10 children from across Key Stage 2 are then democratically voted into office. The children help to keep the minutes, plan agendas and chair the meetings. Other teachers, staff and governors may attend the meetings and get involved in discussions or projects. We currently meet on Mondays after schools each week and Miss Matthews and Mrs Beddall are the current School Council Lead Teachers.


This year our aim is to raise awareness of Climate Change in the world and take action in our own school environment. We are currently supporting the Reception team in the development of a Forest School Site within school grounds and are also hoping to work with Brackley Council to put up speed awareness signs around the roads leading to school. Already this year we have raised lots of money for The Royal British Legion and Children in Need and are looking forward to supporting other worthy charities, including Comic Relief. We have also supported our local FoodBank and collected food over Harvest.


The school council have also spoken to other members of the school community (children and staff) to find out what they would like to improve within school. It was clear that all people felt that more outdoor equipment including, benches, trim trail & new play equipment would be beneficial and continue to support positive playtimes and lunchtimes. We are currently raising money to put towards this by holding different events throughout the year including a Break the Rules Day.


We are continuing to examine ways in which we could make a practical difference to our school environment and intend to take part in the Walkers Crisp Packet recycling scheme as well as becoming a Terra Cycle Point.
