School Council

Our Student Council are known as the 'The Wise Owls' and they have been assigned with roles: Head Owls, Deputy Owls, Technology Owls, Sports Owls, Creative Owls and Secretary Owls.


So far, they have been very busy meeting the Leadership Team, the School Governors and presenting their vision to the staff and children. They were very confident and spoke passionately about their vision for the school. 


The Wise Owls have been working very hard during their recent meetings. They have spoken to children around the school and collated all of their views, to produce their ‘Wise Owl Vision’.


Their vision is split into 4 categories: Leadership and Management, Behaviour and Attitudes, Personal Development and Quality of Education.


Some of the key areas that the children have identified in their Vision are:


Leadership and Management: Parking tickets to raise awareness of parking in Evelyn Avenue, sell art work completed by classes, organise a sponsored run, develop the school council as Young Leaders and for each class to have a budget to buy their own things.


Behaviour and Attitudes: Create videos to share school rules with other children, card swapping club, art club, plants for all classes and to raise money for charity.


Personal Development: Each class to nominate a ‘Happiness Owl’, buy more skipping ropes and outdoor equipment, improve football pitches, playhouses on the playground, all classes to have a Peace and Harmony area, host ‘Evelyn’s Got Talent’


Quality of Education: Classes to have longer time to read for pleasure, run the daily mile every day, all children to play an instrument from Year 2, all children to learn a language from Year 2, create an outdoor sensory area with a swing and climbing frame.


Congratulations to our new Wise Owls. They have been elected to represent their classes from 2021-2022.


We look forward to hearing all about their new initiatives.
