On behalf of the Starks Field Primary School Council we welcome you all to the new academic year for 2020-21.
This week we held School Council elections in classrooms. Pupils had the chance to nominate themselves for a position on School Council and present their ideas to their class; following this all pupils from Year 1to Year 6 voted for their preferred candidate. Mrs Hunter was delighted to reveal the results during assembly on Monday 16th November and is looking forward to undertaking some exciting projects in the near future.
This term the School Council representatives will be trained as Starks Field ambassadors and will be called upon to show visitors and prospective families around the school (when Covid regulations allow). This will be a rewarding opportunity to showcase our wonderful school and answer questions about life as a pupil at Starks Field.
Our Autumn term 2 school value is ‘self-responsibility’; one of the responsibilities undertaken by our School Council members will be to promote our values and plan an assembly about them.
After our first planning meeting, Council members will decide where their priorities will be this year. In what is already proving to be a challenging year, areas that we hope to look at will be focussed around becoming a more eco-friendly school by reducing our single-use plastic usage and recycling more. We will also be continuing our work around Black Lives Matter and ensuring that we challenge racism, become an actively anti-racist school and learn more about the achievements of people from Black and ethnic minority backgrounds.
Although we know that this year will be challenging as we work in a different way, we are determined to maintain the wonderful community feel of our school. We will keep you informed here of the work of our School Council and look forward to seeing its impact on school life over the coming months.
