School Council Meeting Minutes Friday 23rd June

We met together as a council following our successful 'Broad Oak Picnic' and picked litter from the field to help clean up after the event. After this we met for our meeting.

Our agenda today was 'How can we improve road safety outside of school?' As a council we are concerned about the lack of pedestrian crossing on the main road near school. Lots of families have to dangerously cross the road each morning and afternoon. As a council we decided on the following actions:

  1. Write a letter to our local council expressing our concerns about the lack of pedestrian crossing
  2. Hold a school assembly about how to stay safe on the roads outside of school

Here are some photos from our wonderful picnic!



School Council Meeting Minutes Friday 5th May

Today we discussed how successful our letter to a local charity had been. We were granted £300 to spend on the equipment we wanted to make improve playtimes. It felt really good that our council had an impact and that we now will be receiving some of the items off our wishlist.


Our agenda today was 'What would you like to do to celebrate the end of the year?'

We talked together and shared our ideas. Lots of the children discussed doing something outside on the field and a picnic was mentioned as something fun we could all do as a school. We looked online and saw it was National Picnic week in June and so decided we would ask Mrs Hignett if we could have a picnic to celebrate. As a council we voted that we would like the kitchen to make chicken nuggets with chips as a special treat!


School Council Minutes Friday 24th March


Today we met as a School Council to discuss the question ‘How can we make playtimes better for all children?’


These were some of the points we raised:

  • Access to the field more if we have a dry spell
  • More footballs
  • New skipping ropes
  • Locatre lost balls more regularly
  • Having large games outside such as Jenga
  • Bringing back the outdoor library
  • Wet play games such as Dobble and Uno.
  • Organised games outside like cricket and hockey


We discussed as a council writing a letter to a local charity who support schools like ours. Two of the members discussed writing the letter and sending it off with a wishlist of things that would improve our experience. Hopefully we receive a reply and maybe raise some support for some of the items on our wishlist!



School Council 03/03/2023


Today the School Council had our first meeting. We had three items on our agenda and discussed lots of plans and enjoyed meeting together for the first time. 

  1. First on the Agenda we looked at Red Nose Day. We decided as a School Council to wear comfy clothes in support of Red Nose Day. Donations can be brought into school and children can come wearing their comfest clothes/ red noses.
  2. Secondly we talked about Pop Shop songs and voted on two new choices to request from Mr Moore. We can not wait for him to learn these so we can start singing them.
  3. Lastly we completed our letters to the residential home in Broad Oak and nominated members of staff for a 'School Council Shout Out'


Our next meeting we will be discussing: Playground equipment, Lunchtimes and After School Clubs. Here is a photo of us all together!628B2474-FA33-4CE0-8A72-AD592447B815 (1)(1).jpeg
