Now the new school year has commenced, we are on the hunt for our new School Council members. Pupils from Year 2 to Year 6 have been invited to apply to become their class representative and serve on the School Council for the academic year.
The deadline to hand application forms in is Wednesday 15th September and the results will be announced the same day.
Do you have what it takes to contribute to the development of High View?
School Council have met this week to discuss an important matter, or question... Do we all agree?
Miss Smith came to the School Council meeting this week to ask for our help. When a child starts at High View, their parent/carer are asked to sign our Home-School Agreement. This helps to outline how the school will support each child during their time at High View and what a parent/carer and pupil is expected to do.
Miss Smith has asked the School Council to review our Home-School Agreement with pupils in school and also parents at home to make sure it is up to date with High View's ethos.
We cannot wait to get ideas from in school and at home!
School Council have been tasked with the responsibility of collecting pupil's views on our current weekly reward, Golden Time.
Golden Time happens every Friday afternoon for 45 minutes and children get to pick a club to go to. Our clubs range from sewing club to terrific scientific club and are available to all KS1 and KS2 children. This is our reward for working hard all week and following the Golden Rules.
Since speaking to the children of High View, the School Council have found out that Golden Time has lost some of its shine. Some children feel we need to offer a wider range of clubs and mix things up a little bit!
Here are our School Council representatives for the 2020-21.
Two children from each class (Y2-Y6) will represent their peers and help make positive changes within our school.
The reps were chosen by their fellow class mates through an election style process. Each class member voted for their chosen person using a private voting sheet and placing it into a ballot box. The votes were counted up and announced in class this week.
Well done to everyone who applied!
All hands on deck! Tomorrow is our 'Pirate Themed Dinner Day' and we want all me hearties to join in!
We will be eating a pirate themed menu (see below) and wearing our homemade pirate hats!

Yo-ho-ho it's a pirate's life for me!

Just before the Easter break, school council organised for members from each class to take part in a litter pick for 'The Great Big School Clean'.
Thank you to every child who worked hard to pick up the litter around our school.
School Council have later raised the need to conduct this on a more regular basis and will be looking into scheduling another one.
ISS, our school dinner providers, contacted our School Council asking us to hold class councils to find out new and popular meal ideas for next Winter. Some very popular ideas, such as stew and an all-day breakfast were suggested. We are looking forward to seeing what ISS thought to our ideas and looking out for any of our suggestions making the menu next Winter!
School Council have been busy making posters to advertise and promote the breakfast initiative we will be starting. Our school have teamed with 'Magic Breakfast' to offer bagels for all pupils. We are excited to see this initiative launch after our hard work carrying out questionnaires and meeting with adults to discuss the steps involved.
Over the past few months we have been discussing changes we would like to see -both our indoor and outdoor learning environments.
One thing that came up in our discussion was to have snacks at breaktimes and we discovered that many children were really hungry by dinner time.
As a school council we decided to do some research about what pupils were having for breakfast and whether they were filling themselves up!
We have now created and conducted our questionnaires with our classes and we are looking forward to collating the results and making an action plan.
