We had a great day meeting the school councilors from the other 3 schools in our partnership. We got to know each other by working in mixed groups and did a number of activities, which included: school council bingo, writing meeting rules, what makes the perfect school councilor, who decides – pupils or staff. Most importantly, we discussed our action plan for the year and how we will be making our schools a school of sanctuary. Our first plan of action is to promote the Shoebox Appeal!

On Monday 30th January the school councillors from all three schools in our partnership met up for our termly meeting at Highfield House. We were lucky enough to have Mrs Anderson, who works at Swaythling Primary School, come speak to us becoming a School of Sanctuary. She taught us what the difference is between a refugee and an asylum seeker and informed us about the steps that we must take in order to become a School of Sanctuary. As a group, we came up with ideas to make our school a safe and welcoming environment and have plans to share our vision with our school and the wider community.
In the afternoon, we spoke about how we can conserve energy in our schools and in the community. We have decided to have an Eco Day which we will be planning for the summer term. In our conference today, we came up with the rules that we would like to impose to help us save energy.

Today we went to Highfield House for our school council meeting. The school councillors from all three schools across Mrs Montague’s partnership were there.
Some of the things we would like to improve include our green space, an energy saving scheme and adding a gardening area to our school. We look forward to working on these ideas throughout the year.
Written by School Council
The school council meets every fortnight with Miss Murphy to discuss actions you would like to happen in our school. We then make decisions based on your suggestions.
Below are the minutes from these meetings:
2017 – 2018
We also meet termly with our partnership schools, Sinclair Primary School and Bitterne Park Primary School.
Every class has a suggestion box in their class for you to put your suggestions in. We will then discuss your suggestions in our school council meetings.
