School Council

Welcome to Barnham Broom's School Council Page
Our school council consists of two pupils from each class who have been voted in by their class. 
The school council discuss issues that they feel are important to the school and will be involved in planning and improving different areas of the school.  As part of their role they have to discuss issues with their class, gather views and then present those views to the school council meetings.  They then have to feed the outcomes back to their class.

What have the School Council been involved in?

Organised a cake sale to raise money for Children in Need.
Organised Red Nose Day
Sold poppies to all of the classes in school.
Miss Bacon and Mrs Sivyer support the children involved in the School Council to carry out its role.

  The School Council has redesigned our toilet facilities, designed and helped with the installation of our Tyre Park on the school field, carried out pupil surveys and reported back findings.  

From their research the children were able to identify that one area of the school where the children felt less happy were the toilets.  The school Council explained that this was because staff could not monitor these areas as well as other areas.  The school leadership team listened carefully to their ideas and we redesigned our toilets with the children's views in mind.  The School Council designed the colour schemes for the toilets (deciding that both the boys and girls toilets should be the same colours and styles).  It was decided that in order to help children feel happier in the toilet areas, that the main doors to the hand wash areas would be removed and replaced with privacy screens so that activity in the toilet areas could be monitored by staff more easily (each cubicle still has a door though - privacy is important too!).
