In our last meeting we discussed the ways that the articles on the Rights of the Child linked up with some of the displays around school. Children in School Council fed back to their classes the information discussed. Classes had to look around the displays in their classrooms and link them to the articles on the Rights of the Child.
Miss. Greenwell and the School Council represented Stranton Primary School at the Civic Centre to celebrate Commonwealth Day
Today we talked about World Book Day and the different activities that we would like to take part in at school. We also discussed how we could get parents involved in the day. We came up with lots of ideas and passed them onto the literacy team.
School Council met with Mrs Yildirim and we put together a funding bid towards the refurbishment of the EYFS outdoor area. We came up with lots of exciting ideas regarding what play equipment that we should have to help our youngest children progress in their learning outside.
School council worked hard to change the School Improvement Plan into a child friendly version. These were then displayed in all classrooms for teachers to share with their class.
We went to our second school council network meeting at Ward Jackson Primary School.
Children in Need
On Friday 17th November the children and adults at Stranton Primary School supported Children in Need by coming to school wearing something spotty. The children in EYFS had a Pudsey Bear picnic. We raised a fabulous £304 for this worthy cause.

Stranton Primary School is a 'Rights Respecting' School. The Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) is an initiative run by UNICEF UK, which encourages schools to place the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of its ethos and curriculum. This means that we teach children about their rights according to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. On Monday, School Council delivered their first whole school assembly informing the rest of the school about the Rights Respecting School Award. We are currently working towards the first part of the award which is the Recognition of Commitment (ROC).
At Stranton Primary School, the purpose of our School Council is to encourage pupils to get involved in issues that concern them, in and around school to make their school better and improve our school community. We see our School Councillors as holding very responsible positions. Their job is to:
- Attend meetings regularly
- Communicate with the headteacher and governors
- Talk to people and feed their views back to the council.
- Make suggestions for change and improvement
- Decide which charities to support as a school
There are two members of the council from each year group as well as our Head Boy and Head Girl who are chosen through a school ballot. The School Council meet every fortnight with Mrs Yildirim and Mrs Wilson. Following our meetings, the councillors are given time to report back and share anything discussed to their class.
