Our School Council is made up of two children from each class elected by their classmates at the beginning of the year.
Through this process, all children from Year One to Year Six gain experience of Democracy which is integral to their understanding of ‘British Values’.
Every two weeks, we gather to discuss, overview and analyse various school issues so that all children feel heard and together we can make Mary Tavy and Brentor Primary school an inclusive place to learn and grow.
As you will have may have seen on our FB page we have been looking at British Values and learnt all about what living in a Democracy means. We held our – in class elections for our School Council representatives and I am delighted to share with you that the successful candidates for this academic year
Class 1 – Thomas and Elizabeth.
Class 2- Erin and Stanley
Class 3 - Miri and Megan
Our prefects had the opportunity to stand for the positions of Chair and Vice Chair and in all five prefects pitched their manifestos to the school in assembly. We then held a whole school ballot with a ballot box and ballot paper and all children passed their individual vote.
In our Celebration Assembly at the end of the week we announced the successful candidates
Chair of the School Council is Elizabeth and the Vice Chair May
We are looking forward to our first meeting agreeing our ethos and Code of conduct.
It is going to be a very exciting year ahead.
