Astwood Bank Primary School

"A centre of learning and opportunity"

2nd Meeting of 2022/23

Second Meeting of 2022/23

Another productive meeting was held on Friday 11 November. All councilors were present and unsurprisingly, the biscuits had disappeared within the first few minutes!

On this occasion, councilors began by feeding back any points raised by their classmates. We then moved on to discuss how the school will raise money for its chosen charity.

The following points were raised by councilors on behalf of their classmates. All points will be taken to the headteacher to consider.

  • Can we have clock in the hall so children can manage their time during lunchtime?
  • Can we start a bird watching club?
  • What progress has been made with ‘Cheerleading Club’?
  • Can we have burgers for Friday lunches (with toppings)?
  • Can we equip some children with litter pickers to keep the school tidy?
  • Are children allowed to have bigger scissors in class?

Possible Fundraising Ideas

  • Cinema night for both key stages
  • Bring & Buy sale
  • Cake sale
  • Bracelet sale (made by the children)
  • School tea towel
  • Rainbow day or pajama day

1st Meeting of the Year

Meeting Number 1

On Friday 7 October, the school councilors met with Mr Mellows for the first time this year. It was very productive and the following points were raised:

  1. Children have expressed an interest in having a cheerleading club at lunchtime or after school
  2. It was decided that our school will support a charity who works with those who have experienced loss
  3. Many children have asked about having sauces with their meals at lunchtimes
  4. There was some concerns about children being on the trim-trail before and after school
  5. It was proposed that we look into having a lunchtime or after school cricket club, given our local connections

As always, the points raised at the meeting have been presented to the senior leadership team, who will provide a response in time for the children’s next meeting.
