Clubs available to children after school
The School Council is a body of responsible and trustworthy pupils, elected by other pupils to sit on the Council. They are led by Mrs Tarena Beddoes who helps them to come to decisions on such matters as fundraising and new equipment.
"I like being in school council because we decide on ways to make this school better for people growing and learning. It’s fun but we must be sensible about how we spend the money we raise and buy things for the school to make it better. We really love the responsibility of making and designing our dream school. It really feels good to know that your dreams are being made a reality." Year 6 Pupil
