Ferncumbe has a School Council so that pupils can share their ideas with the teachers; this is called pupil voice. It is extremely important that everyone in school gets a say in what they do and that all views are valued. School Council also gives pupils the chance to experience responsibility and play a part in organising and running a variety of activities and projects.
We meet fortnightly.
In the past we have run many charity events, organised a Children in Need day and raised money for SKIP through a Film Night. More recently we worked with the local community to encourage them to look after Hatton; we arranged a poster competition with Mr and Mrs Harrison and the winners had their posters put up in the local area to discourage dog fouling, vandalism, litter and graffiti.
The School Council (and Food Council) committee is made up of the Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurers and Publicity Officer. In addition there are 2 representatives from each class who also attend every meeting.
More information can be found on our display board in school, which School Council have responsibility for.
