School Council's Meeting with Mr Slocombe
March 2021
  
On Friday 19th March, School Council met with Martin Slocombe – Director of Green Gates Solutions. Martin’s company is 10 years old and helps the public sector become more energy efficient. By becoming more energy efficient, as a school we will lower our carbon footprint; become more sustainable and lower our energy bills.
 
As a school, we are really excited about the opportunity to make our school more efficient and cannot wait to work with Martin Slocombe to achieve this.
School Council Elections
October 2020
 
On Wednesday 21st October, a link to an anonymous ballot was sent to all children via Teams. This year, we decided to run elections differently and instead of children knowing who they were voting for, they were asked to select the two anonymous manifestos - one girl's and one boy's - that they liked the best from each year group.
 
All nominees should be very proud of themselves! They each wrote fantastic manifestos, which clearly made the decision that much more difficult for their peers. In total, 61 children voted across the school, with the results being extremely close - especially in years 5 and 6.
