At Oxhey, we value the children’s ideas and opinions and through our work on British Values, have placed a high priority on democracy. Therefore, in each class two children are chosen to represent the views of their peers following a democratic voting system which takes place each term. The children on the school council attend meetings on a fortnightly basis where they share the ideas from their class and help to make important decisions for the school and it’s future.
School Council Meeting Notes:
- Children introduced themselves as the summer term school council members.
- We discussed ideas for fundraising for the summer term, before asking children in their own class.
- Information was shared with the children about the new picnic benches which will be fitted in the vegetable garden. These were agreed upon by the Spring term school councillors.
