Plaxtol Primary 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 meets once a month with Miss Cleisham to discuss various school issues, raise new ideas and give feedback on projects and activities.
We hold an election at the beginning of each academic year to elect our Council representatives. The School Council enables our pupils to learn about the process of electing representatives including thinking, listening, discussing, choosing and agreeing.
On World Book Day last year, March 5th the School Council helped organise a second-hand book sale to raise money for the Yalding Cycle School in Farato, Gambia. Children chose 2 books of their choice and paid a £1 for these books. The Year 6 Buddies helped support the Reception children choose their books. Parents then came to the book sale after school with younger siblings. Any unsold books will be donated to the Plaxtol Village Fair. Well done to the School Council for raising £94 from this event!
This year, members of School Council sold poppies during the week of Monday 6th November to pupils at the school in aid of the Royal British Legion. We held our Remembrance Assembly on Monday 13th November at 11am.
