At Bexton we have an active school council. Each class elects a school council representative who attends meetings, leads their weekly class circle time and reports back to the school council meetings.
In Year 5 and Year 6 children have the opportunity to be part of the 'school council senior leadership team'. The SCSLT is made up of a chair, vice chair, secretary and treasurer. There are also children responsible for actions for curriculum, behaviour and safety and working with the rest of the school council. This year the children have written their own action plans, presented to the Governing Board, led assemblies, purchased a 'friendship bench' for the playground and helped plan whole school curriculum days. They also visited another local school to talk to their school council.
In September we will be advertising new positions on the leadership team. To be considered for the role the children must write a letter of application, be interviewed by the Head teacher and do a presentation explaining how they would further improve aspects of the school.
