Our School Council is made up from elected representatives from Year 1 – 6. The Council provides a forum to discuss many of the important issues which affect the pupils, including safety and security, arrangements at break times, the charities we choose to support and how we raise funds for them.
Since September 2018 the school council have helped pupils choose the new school values which have been shared with all the classes. Look out for the new clubs and further exciting changes!
School Council – 2018 -2019 End of Year Statement
Since September 2018, a new School Council of 24 members has been elected by the pupils. They have achieved many things so far. There are:-
Asking the School to select their own bespoke School Values.
They have asked the pupils to identify different clubs that they would like run by the school and its staff and pupils for 2019.
They launched an Environmental incentive in the school regarding the waste of paper, water and electricity. They also reminded the school about being conscious of litter in the inside and outside of school.
The School Council met with the School Governor Mr Deacon, regarding raising funds for three causes, The British Heart Foundation, Harry’s Rainbow and the School itself.
The School Council worked alongside the PTA in order to raise funds with the “Design a Bauble” Competition.
The School Council ran several stalls at this year’s Christmas Fete and helped raise money for Ipads for the school.

We are delighted to announce that the pupils raised the amazing amount of £1,516.31, which was divided between the two charities. Thanks to all the parents, family and friends who donated to this worthy cause and a special thank you to the fantastic pupils of Wavendon Gate School, who are certainly superstars and super spellers!
