Notes from the last meeting

How could we improve wet playtimes?

School council requested new resources for each class which and enough for all children to access. These were purchased by Friends of Helme School. Each class was given £100 to spend. 

How could we improve celebration?

Suggestions were:

- parents invited for those that had been chosen for an award

- new trophies

- new award categories

-Green Zone children displayed in the hall each week

As a result of these discussions Friday Celebration has completely changed its format, including a class each week choosing the celebration music. 

School Council Trip

In February 2019, our KS2 children in School Council visited the Mayoral Offices in Kirklees and met the Mayor and her staff. The children went into the chambers and had a talk about the role of the Mayor within Kirklees and about how democracy works both in Kirklees and the wider UK. Our children were prasied by the mayor for their insightful questions. After their visit, School Council, were so entralled by the idea of leadership that they invited the Mayor to come to visit Helme and speak to the whole school...and she accepted!

In March 2019, the Mayor came to our school and spoke about leadership and what her role entails on a daily basis. She spoke in detail to KS2 and encouraged them to really persue careers and challenges they are passionate about!
