Here at Bowburn Primary School we have an active School Council who were elected by the pupils in the Autumn term . They meet regularly in each building to share the views of the children with staff.
Our School Council regularly meet with Mrs Foster, Mrs Glass and Mrs Watson (parent governor) in the infant building, and with Mr Wilby, Mrs Glass or Mr Soler in the junior building. We plan to hold more joint meetings in the Spring term.
One important job for School Council is regularly meeting with Jill Dixon, area manager of Taylor Shaw, our school meals providers. At these ‘SNAG’ meetings, the School Council share their views on school meals, and lunchtimes in general ! The children even undertake taste tests to sample new choices for the menus. Our school cooks Joanne and Stacey take part too.
If you have any suggestions or ideas , see your school council representative and they can bring them to the next meeting !
