School Council 2019/2020
As Council members of Sutton Green Primary School we respect the views of others. Our role is important because we can make big decisions and help the school to be a better, safer place.
We act as good role models for the children and often meet and greet visitors to school. We believe that it is important for every child to have a voice and to be heard.
The school council consits of 10 members, all of which have an important role to play within our school. We currently have children from years 2 - 6, including representatives for every class in school.
This year the council have met up to discuss a variety of different matters such as pupil voice questionnaires, pupil suggestion boxes, recycling schemes and community-based projects.
We were given a lovely task this week! Mrs Cole asked us to select the new lunch menu for September. It was a tough job but someone had to do it... We can't give too much away but the roast dinner proved to be VERY popular and it looks like it's here to stay!
This week our Eco Ministers have been monitoring how we recycle our rubbish in school. They have visited each class to ask the children about different ways that they recycle and had some amazing feedback.
“Lots of classes suggested that we could have bins for our food waste outside. Some children came up with the idea of having bin monitors to make sure that the right bins are being used. We also talked about using our compost bin for all of the food waste, which we think is a really good idea”.

Well done to our Eco Ministers for raising such an important issue and thank you to each class for being so enthusiastic about recycling at Sutton Green.

We are currently working on updating our school rules and have asked each class for ideas. This week we met up to discuss the suggestions. So far we have had some amazing ideas and it will be a tough job to decide on our final 5! Speak to a member of our council if you have any other ideas/suggestions.
