LETTER TO THE PARENTS OF THE 2015 SCHOOL COUNCIL
Dear Parent/ Carer,
We wanted to write and say a big thank you to your son/daughter for all of their hard working over the last term and a half during their time on the school council. The children came up with a lot of very good ideas about how their school could be made better. A lot of these ideas have been turned in to actions, with very positive outcomes. Knowing that children can sometimes be a little reluctant to talk about what happens at school, we thought that we would write and fill you in on their achievements:
As you can see, the 8 school councillors from Years 1 and 2 have worked very, very hard. It has been lovely to see how they have all become more confident and by the end of their term in office, had become a close team of children, happy to give their opinions and to listen to those of the others.

Present: Felicity, Peter, Maisy, Zachary, Holly, Violet, Henry and Clare Ratcliffe.
What we talked about today:
Today we wrote a letter which can be sent out to people asking for their help to make our outdoor space better. We can also use some of the letter to put onto the school website as it explains who we are and what we are trying to do to make the school better
What happens next…
Clare will type up the letter and start to send it out. She will send everything we have done so far to Mrs Abbott so that she can put it onto the school website.
Mrs Abbott is going to take photos of the school council members these will be put up in the hall and also put onto the website.
At our next meeting we will design a poster for our poster competition asking everyone to take better care of our play equipment.
Date of next meeting: Wednesday 21st October
