As part of living out our school vision and values, School Councillors are fairly and democratically elected by their peers. Each candidate is asked "How would you live life in all its fullness if you are elected as a school councillor?" We then vote for new members each term to represent the children in school. School Council acts as a liaison between the adult school leaders and the children and vice versa. Issues and ideas are discussed at regular meetings with our School Council Leader, and are then fed back to classes and the wider school community.
The School Council find out what our school community thinks about various topics, gathering information and ideas from each class and sharing this in their meetings or leading an assembly to share their findings with the school. St Nicolas' School Councillors are ambassadors for our school, modelling our vision and working. We also play an important role in fundraising for the charities our school supports.

School Council, Autumn Term 2022
"We wanted to be School Councillors so we can help everyone to live life in all its fullness and have a love of learning and sense of unity. We want to help support charities too."
This year, School Council is supporting the following charities:
We also have links with Pilgrim Wood, our local care home.
We have been gathering Harvest donations to give to Christians Against Poverty
We have carried out a survey to gather children's views about how they feel at school. We met with Mrs Smart to share the results.
We organised a fundraiser for Children in Need. The theme was 'Together We Can', and we asked everyone to wear something sparkly or their favourite colour, and we danced together in our classes. We raised £507!!
We have been raising money for the Forgotten People's Project (our link school in Uganda). We organised a 'Dress Up As Someone Who Inspires You' day to help send a container of resources to help the school community in Uganda to live life in all its fullness. We helped raise nearly £350!
