We value the ideas and opinions of our children. In order to provide a forum for all children to have a ‘voice’ we hold monthly Class Councils. All the children are trained at holding meetings, taking minutes and setting agendas.
Being a School Council rep is considered to be an important role in our school, thus the children are encouraged to think carefully before committing themselves to a year ‘in office’.
Hustings are held each new academic year in the Autumn term, where the children can explain to their class why they feel they would make a good School Council rep.
The children take part in a real experience of an election. To promote Citizenship and British Values the elections are carried out with voting slips and mini-booths to vote in their new school council representatives.
We would like to congratulate our newly voted in School Council for 2019-2020:
Badger Class – Annie & Theo
Fox Class – Ollie & Arla
Woodpecker Class - Oliver & Megan
Owl Class – Vienna & Jack
Rabbit Class – Benjamin & Lucy

They will be supporting the Senior Leadership Team to lead initiatives and evaluate how effectively our school runs, so that Shirley Infants is the best school it can possibly be. This year our first focus will be getting the children's ideas on our new wellbeing puppet. We look forward to working with them.
We will be working on our School Self Evaluation Form throughout the year.
