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 Year 3 children write letters to say why they would like to be on the council school. Up to 8 children are then 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 meet on Tuesdays after schools each week.

During 2019 and 2020 we aim to raise awareness of Climate Change in the world and take action in our own school environment. We are also aiming to work towards our Green Tree Schools Award, hoping to achieve Bronze by the end of the year. We have already raised lots of money for The Royal British Legion and Children in Need and are looking forward to supporting other worthy charities, including Water Aid. We have also supported our local FoodBank and collected food over Harvest.

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.
