School Council

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.

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.

'Go Red' Day

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.

The new playground toys

February 2016 - Look out for the new playground toys bought by the School Council. Here is the assembly we used to introduce the toys.

The school council reported on the findings of the safety survey to the school during assembly.

How safe is Cranbourne? Very according to year 1 who have completed a safety survey for the school council.

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!

We are very pleased because we received an award! We have been given a highly commended award from the speaker of the House of Commons because we did such a good job choosing scooter pods for our school. We hope that more people will scoot and cycle to school. It is good for the environment, it is healthy and it is lots of fun!
The School Council have been working hard deciding how to spend their budget. Look out for exciting new reading areas appearing in the classrooms and new toys in the playground.
