The WP School Councillors meet with Sian (Deputy Head / Inclusion Lead) every two weeks and bring ideas and suggestions from their classes in a special School Council book. They wear their badges with pride and are dedicated, active and determined to make change. Follow the links below to find out what they’ve been talking about. Reports are also published in our school newsletter, the Patten Pages.
Our School Council got off to a great start in the first half term and made lots of suggestions to help improve the school experience for the pupils of William Patten. Here are the suggestions and actions from some of our meetings from last year and this year:
Our School Council have been collecting for charity at the school gates. Each month a year group chooses a charity (or two!) and their elected Councillors decorate the buckets with charity logos and shake at the gates!
Year 4 School Councillors shook their buckets on the gates last week and raised a very impressive £210.13 for their chosen local charity, ‘The Bike Project’. The organisation provides refurbished bikes for refugee adults and children, as well as cycling lessons for refugee women.
School Council collecting for Mind and WWF charities.
