Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community. It is made up of three elected representatives from each year group in years 2-6; reception and year 1 class contributions are received in writing from their class teachers. The council meets every fortnight during term time to discuss issues raised at class councils and to give the children an opportunity to share their ideas about proposed improvements to the school. The Council makes a valuable contribution towards the continued success of Cranbourne School.
With the help of the school council, the children of Cranbourne Primary have chosen the RSPCA as the school charity to support this year.
Already this academic year, we've:
- written to the water company to get the leak fixed
- chosen the charity to support for the year
- been looking at ways of reducing the use of plastic at Cranbourne

Congratulations to the school council for achieving a speakers school council award for their work on healthy eating at playtimes. Well deserved after a lot of hard work.
The School Council decided to support the Herts and Essex Air Ambulance Service as our school charity this year. All the proceeds from collections from our year group shows go towards this charity. The School Council wanted to do more for this worthwhile charity so they decided to organise a 'Go Red' day on Friday 6th May. They asked everyone in the school to wear something red on this day in return for a small donation.
We are very excited to be the new school council reps. We are going to listen to everyone and work really hard to make Cranbourne School even better. We are looking at safety around Cranbourne. Look out for us; we will be asking you lots of questions!
