The School Council is a group of elected students from years 1-6 who meet every 2 weeks to discuss important aspects of school life. The School Council members are voted in each year. Each class elects two students to represent them; this makes up the School Council.
THE SCHOOL COUNCIL AIMS:
To gather the students' views on aspects of school life by raising points discussed with their own class and sharing those thoughts at the meeting.
To represent students' views at School Council meetings so that these can be fed back to the school's management.
To help to identify areas of school which would benefit from improvement.
To raise with the student body, issues which are a cause of concern
To give students an insight into citizenship
To represent the student body in meetings with visitors
If students have any issues they wish to raise about the school, they should contact one of their School Council Representatives.
The meetings are currently led by Year 5 & 6, who review actions and lead a discussion on points for improving life at Lime Tree. During the school council meetings, a number of points about school development are usually raised. These points vary from small suggestions like suggesting ideas for playground games to improving diversity to our curriculum.
Autumn 2022 - update
This academic school year, the school councillors (children elected from Years 1-6) are promoting healthy eating, including a healthy lifestyle for the children of Lime Tree! This includes promoting and pursuing the rules of healthy snacks for breaktime (nut free) and healthy school packed lunches.
The school councillors aim in the new year to observe lunches with the help of Ms Hawker and give free healthy food advice! They are healthy school ambassadors and role models.
We will develop a campaign around the school by creating posters to spread awareness and have the councillors feedback information to their classes.
We will be working to progress from our Healthy Schools London bronze award (HSL) to the silver award by the end of the academic year. HSL is one of the Mayor of London's key programmes helping to deliver his Health Inequalities strategy.
We want the Mayor of London to recognise our healthy school achievements!
