We have a very active school council here at Priory Fields, with children who are in years 3 to 6 elected to represent their class on the school council and Years R-2 are represented by a year 6 child who speaks on their behalf.
"I promise to do my best, I am proud that I have been elected as a school councillor. I will take my role seriously and am committed to the school and the school council. I will always uphold the school values and encourage others to do so. I will be a positive role model for the school and will wear my jumper with pride."
Say 'Thank You' to the NHS Competition Update
The school council have been working hard to promote the NHS competition ‘Say Thank You to the NHS’. As part of this competition, children were given the task to design and create something which could be used to say thank you to the NHS for all of their hard work. Take a look at some of our designs!
Smile Train Charity Fundraiser - April 2022
The School Council is holding a fundraiser for the Smile Train cleft palate charity.
Week beginning Monday 25th April, children will be able to choose a fun sporting activity for their PE lesson. They will also be able to wear their own sporty clothes on their PE day and will have lemonade on the field after their PE session.
We're asking for a £1 donation, but anything you can give will be fine.
See our presentation at the end of this page for more details about the charity.
We made this flyer to tell you all about our fundraiser:
The School Council are promoting this competition where we can say thank you to the NHS. We will be exploring all the jobs there are in the NHS- did you know they are our country's largest employer? They employ over 1.7 million people.
We held an assembly to share this exciting and worthwhile competition with the whole school. Many of us may go into the NHS when we are old enough- like Aspirational Ant.

Here is the poster we made and have put around the school:

Sunrise Café Cheque Presentation
We presented Sunrise Café with a cheque. We raised an incredible £200 from our Rainbow Day! This was an event planned by the school council. We are looking forward to working with the Sunrise café as they use some of our values
From our Head Girl:
Some of our hardworking school council members were nominated to visit the beautiful Sunrise cafe. They took our school minibus to the the cafe and soon after gave them a £200 cheque that we raised as a school.
Thank you from the School Council
Here is a letter to parents:
The poppies you made are amazing!
Today we hung up the poppies on the front fence in a wave in our playtimes, it was fun. Some were made out of bottles, tissues or knitted. Some were big and others were small.
Our complete flyer:
We have decided to hold a school council poppy event. We want families to make poppies to display along our school fence to show our value of respect for soldiers past present and future.
It is important that we mark remembrance and never forget the sacrifice of so many.
Here we are working on our flyer!
First Meeting of this Year's School Council 2021-22
We held our first meeting and introduced each other. We went round the table and said our name and then said what class we represent. We decided to keep supporting Sunrise Cafe and ask the classes to help us choose some other charities.

Our board in the top corridor is now up, so you can keep up-to-date with our activities!
