School Council Zone


 The School Council invited the whole school to wear a Christmas Jumper on Friday 13th December to raise money for the charity Save the Children.  Overall the children raised £340.30 from the day.  


Christmas Jumper Day


Many of our children followed the school council's Top Tips to create their own Christmas Jumper!  


Top Tips

õ  Cut out Christmassy pictures and attach them to the front of a jumper

õ  Attach bells or baubles to a jumper

õ  Decorate a jumper with cotton wool snowballs

õ  Trim your jumper with tinsel around the neck and cuffs

õ  Create tin foil accessories (stars or snowmen maybe) and add them to a jumper

õ  Make some pom-poms in Christmassy colours

Children in Need


The school council spent all week selling competition booklets which they'd created specially for Children in Need. The booklets sold like hot cakes and made a lot of money for the charity.

The council's fundraising efforts culminated in them selling real cakes on the playground on Children in Need day.

Thank you to everyone who donated and well done to our competition winners who were selected live from all the correct entries during our special Children in Need assembly.


Well done to one of our children who raised a fantastic £82.79 from a sponsored silence and to our school councillor who created our Children in Need competition for this year.

Harvest Festival


Our first task, as newly elected School Councillors, was to help display all the donations for Southend Foodbank ahead of the Harvest Festival assembly.

Congratulations to our newly elected school council for 2019 – 2020


School Council Election


Elections took place in every class in the school when the children voted for one of their peers to represent them on the school council.

Our school council works hard over the year to help make the school even better as well as support in whole school events such as Children in Need.
