School Council helps the whole school!
The School Council at Bayford School consists of two children from years 2 to 6. These children are elected by a class vote and are chosen by their classmates for having the right qualities needed to run a successful School Council.
The School Council meets every few weeks and more often when issues or ideas arise in school. They meet at lunchtimes and discuss things which are happening in school and they also bring messages from their classmates that may need discussing further. They come up with ideas for fundraising alongside FOBS and how we can spend the money in school.
The School Council help to organised various events and activities e.g. Red Nose Day. They decided that we would wear something red on the day, hold a bake sale, design a red nose competition and guess the number of sweets in a jar.
They have previously helped design a playground mural with a local artist based around British Values. This was then followed by a visit to the British Library to see the Magna Carta.
