We have a strong and active School Council which consists of children from each Year Group from Year 1 through to Year 6. These pupils have been elected by their peers to represent the views of the pupils and raise issues with the School Leadership Team.
In general, the School Council aims to:
Play an active role in making West Lodge Primary School a better place
Help all pupils enjoy their education and feel safe being in school
Influence decisions that affect pupils in the school
Ensure the teachers and the Leadership Team respond to the views, feelings and opinions of all the pupils
Fundraise for the school, support local initiatives and charities, responding, in particular, to immediate need (Relates to ARTICLES 12 and 13 of the U.N. Convention of the Rights of the Child)
The main role of The School Council this year will be to be the ECO Committee, leading the way to the school achieving the ECO Schools Green Flag.
The ECO Schools Green Flag is an international accreditation that has recognised and rewarded young people’s environmental actions for over 25 years.
It is the perfect way to acknowledge, reward and celebrate the ecological achievements of young people. It demonstrates that their hard work is appreciated and it provides them with the confidence and motivation to continue actively engaging with environmental issues now and throughout their lifetimes. It creates the next generation of innovative, inspirational environmentalists and tells local communities that the school is forward-thinking and actively engaged in protecting our planet.
The School-council/Eco-committee will also work on projects linked to their year group's focus on one of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
This will be the challenge for West Lodge Primary School and the School Council will be leading the way!
