School Council

At The Observatory School we are proud to have pupil representatives that take part in School Council meetings.  This is so that pupils have a voice and are involved in decisions about the school that affect them.  Through their class reps, all pupils have the opportunity to raise issues and share ideas that are then taken back to a school council meeting. This ensures that as many pupil voices as possible are heard.  Pupils at The Observatory School know that this is their school and their thoughts and ideas matter. 

During our meeting we discussed the use of social time and how we can improve behaviour throughout the school. The council had many good suggestions such as improving the outside area behind the mobiles and introducing more practical  based socials. 

The council reported that the new socials were more exciting and that there were more options for them to chose from. They were pleased to hear about the events which were organised for tis term, especially the dinosaurs. 

 The pupils also discussed lunch time and each class having time in the hall once a week for lunch. They said this would improve well-being as they would have the chance to meet other pupils and chose what they want to eat. They also said that breakfast club would improve well-being. 

The council are still focusing on well-being and are asking their groups for more ideas, ready for next week’s meeting.
