Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
The School Council is an important part of Trotts Hill and the children feel proud to be elected. In July, the class vote for their representatives for the next academic year. All children from Year 2 to Year 6 are given the opportunity to stand for election. After making a speech to their class, their peers vote. This is an important part of children’s experience of British Values and a democratic process in school. Children attend a fortnightly meeting with Mrs Wilby.
Our School Council is a member of Stevenage Schools Parliament and the Year 6 School Councillors attend regular meetings.
The Year 6 school councillor's visited Stevenage Borough Council and met the Mayor of Stevenage with other local schools. They discussed litter, which is a big problem in town at the moment. They were then asked to think of ways to combat the litter problem and think of some actions to bring back to school. FM and Bella have chosen for Trotts Hill to host a poster competition in school. The winner will be decided at the next parliament meeting and the poster may even be displayed around the town! The theme will be: Recycle Like Michael.
This month we have discussed a wide range of subjects. We started the year off by thinking about what clubs we would like to have at school. Here are some of our favourite ideas, we hope to see some of these available over the school year!
