The School Council is made up of 12 members and the Senior Prefect team and is led by our Librarian Miss Cumming. The Council represents all students and aims to help improve the school.
Members of the Council meet regularly, usually within morning registration time, to discuss and plan to action any issues arising. These may include school lunches, behaviour, uniform or ideas for raising money. Upper school officers from Key Stage 4 are elected to help chair the meetings and take notes.
The Council are responsible for most of our fundraising, whether it be through non-uniform days, cake sales or big events such as food drives. The Council makes the decision through a voting process on the 3 charities the school supports throughout the year. We have a history of supporting various charities and causes, such as Cancer Research, Action for Autism, Love in a Box, Help for Heroes, Sports Relief, Children in Need, the Redcar Area Food Bank and Comic Relief.
Council members are also chosen to represent the school in events such as the Year 6 Open Evening and the PTFA Christmas Fair, and also form part of an interview panel for new members of staff in which they ask candidates a series of questions and feed back to the Senior Leadership Team.
Some of the council members, along with those from Saltburn Primary School, are also part of the East Cleveland Children’s Council. This council was set up in September 2014 with the aim of giving young people in our area a ‘voice’ about various community issues. Members look into raising awareness of things such as broken play equipment and dog mess! The council is currently lead by a former Headteacher of a local primary school, and meet regularly throughout each year to keep on top of the issues that they feel strongly about.
