The School has a fully-elected School Council that gives the children a voice in the decision-making process. At the beginning of the year in the Junior School each class elects a representative to take the views of their class to the regular Council meetings. In the Infant School the council representatives change termly.
If you have an idea that you think could improve the school, or something you are not happy with, remember you can talk to your School Councillor who will raise it at the next council meeting. Each class has regular meetings with their School Councillor so that every child has the chance to find out what is being discussed at school council meetings.
In the Junior school council meetings are led by the Chair and Vice Chair, facilitated by Miss Willis. In the Infant school Mrs Harman facilitates the meetings. At certain points during the year the two school councils come together to discuss whole school matters.
This year the school council are writing to the Mayoress of Gosport to request a visit to her chambers, and to also invite her to visit our school.
