School Council 2015/2016
Road Safety Project
Our School Council have had a very busy year working hard on their Road Safety project. The children have been gathering opinions from their classmates and from parents. Following on from this, they have been writing to local councillors to find out more about what can be done to improve conditions on the road outside school, including the potential location of a new crossing. The School Council representatives have also had the opportunity to meet our local MP James Heappey during his recent visit to our school. During this meeting the children put forward their concerns and received Mr Heappey’s praise and support for their campaign. The School Councillors still have plans for their project, including designing information posters for their fellow pupils and arranging Road Safety assemblies for the whole school.
As a result of their hard work, our School Council have been able to enter their project into the School Council Award for the Speaker of the House of Commons. As many of you will know from our recent newsletter, the children have had their project rated as Highly Commended and have now received their certificates. Our congratulations to all the children involved for their dedication and hard work!
