  • The Key Stage 2 children wanted to focus on outdoor equipment at playtimes and having indoor options.

  • Key Stage 1 and 2 felt that healthy lunches and lunchtimes were something they wanted to improve.

  • All children were keen to have a School talent show.


School Council Governor meeting

The School Council met with Tom Morell ( Foundation Governor) on the 27th November. They said that they had an interesting conversation and that it was nice to meet with a governor. They enjoyed talking about subjects that they wouldn’t normally talk about. The School Council Chair (Antek) commented on how important it was to make sure children were eating their healthy food.
