At Kingfisher Primary School, we believe the children are at the core of what we do. As a result of this, we believe they should have an active role in making the school the best it can be. At the start of the year, the children wrote manifestos stating why they should represent the school on the school council. We then select two children from each class
to become councillors. These children will listen to their peers and pass on suggestions about possible improvements or additions to the school and its facilities.
Kingfisher Charity Bake Off
This term, the School Council cam up with a great way of raising money for our School Charity, Young Lives vs Cancer. All children were tasked with the challenge of baking a cake and bringing it into school to be sold to parents at the end of the day. The School Council were in charge of the judging at it was a real challenge as the standards were very high. We were so proud of all the effort that went into the cakes and the turnout at the end of the day. In the end, we raised £195. A big thanks to the PTA for thier help at the sale as well as some fantastic Year 6s.
360 Online Safety Mark
The School council played a big part in helping the school demonstrate its hard work when it came to online safety. On January 9th, some assessors came in to collect evidence and speak to the children. They spoke to the School council, as well as our digital leaders, about online safety here at Kingfisher Primary School. The children represented the school superbly and voiced their opinions with great maturity. As a result, we were awarded the accreditation.
Making the School a better place
The children have been working hard and fielding suggestions from their peers about how to make the school a better place to learn and to grow.
The School councillors did a great job of passing on the suggestions from the different year groups to Mr Green and Mr Glentworth.
As a result, we have purchased more seating for the playground and lots of new exciting equipment to be used at lunch time. The children love playing connect four and some of the teachers too!
Young Lives vs Cancer
The Year 6 School councillors got together and conducted a poll to put forward a charity for this year. It was decided that a local charity should be chosen and the children picked Young Lives vs Caner. Over the rest of the year, we will be raising money for this fantastic cause.
