School Council

In Gayton School Council, there are two representatives for each class. Every year different people are elected by students.

We often meet to discuss ideas which have been raised by children about the school e.g. safe playtimes, the tidiness of the cloakrooms and whether girls should be allowed to wear trousers.

We have a budget to help us achieve our aims. The Council allows children in school to state a point of view and to have an impact on what happens in school. Some examples of what the School Council have achieved recently include:

New playground markings and assault course

Healthy Junior tuck shop

Changing the order that children go in at lunchtime

Changing football rota at playtimes and introducing a wider range of games, led by play leaders

Running fundraising events
