Our School Council|
At St. Anne’s we are proud of our School Council as it represents the views and opinions of the most important people in the school: our children.
Children from each year group were democratically chosen this February by their class to represent the views of the whole class at the council meetings. It is a great compliment to the children who were chosen and they have many plans for the coming year.
So far this year, members have worked with their class to feedback views on:
They have also welcomed their local Councillor and have taken part in Assemblies.

The School Council are working towards the Bronze level certificate with Modeshift Stars, a National schools' award scheme that recognises schools that demonstrate excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other sustainable methods of travel.
Each class have completed a survey to identify how children currently travel to school.
The Infant Classes recently took part in the "Art of STARS" competition.
The winners were Lily Long (Year 2), Gabrielle Brindle (Year 1) and Genevieve Lai (Reception).
RECYCLE FOR SCHOOL DAY|
The School Council ‘recycle 4 school’ day was held on Friday 23rd February. This was a great opportunity to show that we as a school care about the environment, ethics and sustainability. The event was a great success and raised funds of £196.50 for the Junior and Infant Playgrounds!
SANTA FUN RUN|
In the last week of the Autumn term, we organised a whole school Santa Dash around the Junior playground.
Each year group set their own challenge to complete a number of laps - some children managed 15 laps!!
We were absolutely amazed that we raised just over £2050 and will use the money to benefit our outdoor playtimes!
The council recently compiled a questionnaire for parents to complete with the aim of improving road safety outside school.
Parents responded with some great ideas which they hope to use in the school road safety action plan.
The year group with the most responses was Year Five....they now have the task of deciding how to spend their £100 prize!!
