Our aim is to improve and develop our school. We want to make our school a place where each child has a voice and their opinions and suggestions are heard.
The school council works to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at Christ Church. We look around for things that could be better and discuss what to do. Everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished we vote on the best ideas and then start working on changing things. Sometimes we have to talk to teachers and sometimes we have to make phone calls to people outside of the school.
Every year we run an election campaign to vote for two new representatives for each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings. Every week Mrs Bray updates the children in achievement service school about our meetings.

School Council meets every 6 weeks on a Wednesday afternoon. Your class representatives will have regular class council meetings with you. They will use the ideas from our meeting to discuss important things with you. They make sure you have the opportunity to share your ideas and views so they can feedback at School Council meetings with everyone.
Our school representatives are looking at different ways that we can can look after our mental health. To introduce Children's Mental Health week the team will be leading our assembly and sharing their amazing ideas. The theme for this year is called 'Let's Connect' and encourages children to look at how we can make meaningful connections.
Here are some of our suggestions:
Reading a Book
Learning to play a musical instrument
Spending time with pets
Attending sports clubs outside school
