The School has a fully elected School Council which gives the children a voice in the decision-making process. At the beginning of the year each class elects a representative, who takes the views of their class to the regular Council meetings.

If you have an idea that you think could improve the school or something you are not happy with, remember you can talk to your school councillor who will raise it at the next council meeting. Each class has regular meetings with their school councillor so that every child has the chance to find out what is being discussed at school council meetings.

Each term the school council also has a ‘council symposium’ where they meet with the Headteacher and Chair of Governors to talk about how things are going in school and to share any new ideas for school improvement.

What has the school council achieved recently?

  • They have taken part in health and safety checks and given feedback to our Site Manager so he can keep the school safe.
  • They have met with Mrs Green and Mr Miles to look at ways to make MRJS a greener school.
  • They have been responsible for identifying possible charities that we will support this year.

  • The school council are working with Mrs Wintle to review our school values as part of our 2018-2019 Curriculum Review.

The Suggestion Box

Thanks to a previous school council, we have a suggestion box in the school reception. This is another way for children, parents and staff to put forward ideas ideas for making our school even better. The suggestions go to the school council who will discuss them at their meeting.
