Our School Council is an important part of Werneth Primary School. The School Council works closely with our children and senior leadership team to help improve our school. Over the past few years, our School Council has been extremely active and has been involved in various projects such as developing our Behaviour Expectations, raising the expectations of good attendance, designing our competitive sports kit, delivering assemblies on E-Safety and Keeping Safe, raising money for various charities with sponsored events and surveying the children to get feedback and ideas for further improvements. More recently, the School Council worked with Mr North to improve our KS2 playground.
The School Council is usually made up of 16 children that have been voted for by their peers. Each year, we hold a campaign week whereby the children write their manifestos and present them to their class. At the end of the week, each class holds a secret ballot and the winning candidates are announced during a special assembly.
