Making Kingsnorth even better.
Kingsnorth School Council meets once every fortnight and is made up of 1 child per class from Years 1 to 6. These elected representatives attend formal meetings during which school issues are discussed with the aim of giving the children the power to impact our school. Some issues are brought by the members themselves as a result of discussion within their Class Councils. Occasionally the Council will take the lead on a fundraising project in line with the school’s Charity giving for that year. Above all, the School Council aims to give members a say in decisions about their school, becoming a responsible group that makes a difference. Our members sometimes write formally to our local community, cooks or teachers to suggest improvements . It is very exciting when we receive replies!
The School Council take a leading role in making things happen, particularly our fundraising events for local charities. They are involved in planning and advertising, counting money, presenting cheques and making short speeches in front of the whole school community. This provides fantastic experience for leadership and confidence building in the children. So far this year we have supported Ashford Food bank, Children for Need and Twinkling Stars. We are looking forward to a number of other charity events in the near future.
We will be inviting the school Governors, Senior Leadership Team, PFA and other staff members to attend some of our meetings, so that there is an opportunity for school council to raise issues and share ideas with all members of the school family.
These are the events and themes the School Council are currently discussing and planning for -
The School Council are excited to be raising awareness of and supporting the next 2 events on our calendar.
All the classes will be learning a song called 'There's a place' which teaches us about celebrating differences around us and being proud to be together. We will be 'making a noise' about bullying and then on Friday 17th November we will be wearing 'Odd' or 'Spotty' socks.
Should you have some brilliant ideas to share with our school, please contact a member of the School Council. We look forward to hearing from you
