Meet our School Council
At Old Town Infant School and Nursery we value the importance of our children having a say in how and what they learn. If we are truly expecting them to be independent, respectful and creative, we know it is essential for them to have responsibility for their own learning. To help manage the valuable thoughts and ideas of every child from Nursery to year 2 we have elected 8 school council members. The School council is made up of 8 children and they are each linked to a class in school. In their role, they are expected to gather the thoughts and ideas of the children in the class they are representing about all aspects of learning in school. The School Council then take on the responsibility of making some of the changes happen – meetings are held once a fortnight. They have been involved in developing the playground and running their own fund raiser to raise money for local charities.
