Our School Council - Our Voice!
School Council Intent Statement
With God, all things are possible.
Nurture: Through our School Council, we ensure that all the children at St. Michael with St. John CEP School are cared for, supported and listened to.
We encourage the children in our school to become more aware of some of the issues around us. We have helped many projects, for example, the Bethany Project, and we have arranged coffee mornings to support MacMillan Cancer Care.
Additionally, we raise money every year for our school, to help to make it a better place.
We respect ideas from all the different year groups and care for those around us by trying our best to solve any problems.
Our School Council ensure that every child at SMSJ has a voice which can be heard.
Inspire: The School Council at SMSJ have been elected to set an example for their class by following the school rules and values.
By motivating our peers with interactive and fun ideas, we have raised large amounts of money by holding fundraisers that engage the children and encourage them to donate.
Our School Council also show pupils at SMSJ how to be perfect pupils and when fundraisers have been organised, we inspire them to bring in money and participate.
We inspire our children to think of others, both within our school and in the wider community. Our School Council ask the children in their classes to consider ways in which SMSJ can be improved, then they work together to make some of these ideas a reality.
Achieve: Last year, our School Council raised nearly £1000 for Big Write items in school. In addition to this, we also raised money for various charities.
This year, we have raised over £120 for MacMillan Cancer Research, over £180 for Children in Need, over £110 for The Bethany Project and we also raised money for Sport Relief. In addition to this, our families provided lots of food donations for Blackburn Foodbank.
SMSJ School Council work hard to raise money for different charities throughout the year.
Our School Council is made up of one representative from each class (Year 1 to Year 6). We meet every fortnight to talk about how we can make our school an even better place to be!
In 2017-18 we raised money for books for ERIC (Everyone Reading In Class), books linked to the topics taught in class and new table organisers if needed.
In 2018-19 we raised money for resources and equipment to support us in our Big Writes.
Meet the School Council of 2019-20
This year, the School Council has decided to not only raise money for a school focus, but also raise money for different charities.
Our focus for the school is to raise money for class library books - to ensure our class libraries are up-to-date and full of books which the children are interested in. So far, we have raised money for this by completing a Sponsored Silence, where all the children (and staff!) were silent for half an hour (Reception children for ten minutes)!
We are also raising money for lots of different charities. So far, we have raised money for:
MacMillan Cancer Research,
Children In Need,
The Bethany Project, and
We have also been collecting food for Blackburn Food Bank throughout the year.
Thank you to all those people who have donated food and money so far.
