The school council met with two of the school governors to discuss what SMILE meant to us. The children were able to describe each of the letters giving an example of how we use the SMILE ethos.

Houses of Parliament Visit 11th November 2014
The School Council children from Year 4, 5 and 6 were very fortunate to visit the Houses of Parliament on Monday 11th November. They were given a guided tour by Mr Skelton (senior) who worked in the Houses for over 25 years. The children got to see both the House of Commons and House of Lords and learned about the history of the government. Mrs Gibbard and Mr Nott were very impressed with how responsible the children were while travelling to and from London and wowed by the children's historical knowledge! A big thank you to Mr Nott and Mr Skelton (junior) for organising the trip.
Our school council is made up of two members from each class who are elected at the start of each term. The School Council allows all the children to have a voice and to influence the running and the organisation of the school. Each School Council member has a very important and responsible job!
We meet regularly to discuss matters that affect us and also to suggest things that would make our time at school better. The School Council are consulted for their views on a range of issues e.g. monitoring behaviour, equipment for play and fund raising both for our school or charity.
