School Council & Ambassadors
We are committed to getting as many of our pupils involved in school life as possible. We value our pupils' ideas and want to encourage them to take opportunities that will help them and others in the future. Who knows, where these opportunities might take them!
What is the School Council?
The school council is a group of representatives from each class. We work together, with adults in the school, to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at St Patrick's by sharing our opinions and ideas.
The School Council representatives from each class will bring ideas forward from children in their class so ensure that the every child's voice is heard at St Patrick's! The School Council's aim is to make St Patrick's the best school it can be!
There are two school councillors for each year group supported.
School Council meetings are led by Miss Evans, Y4 teacher.
Who are the School Councillors?
At the start of a new school year we vote for two new representatives for each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings and share any important news.
In 2022, we also nominated Worship and Charity Ambassadors to support the school and wider community.
There are two Worship and two Charity Ambassadors for each year group and these are changed every year.
Mrs Tomlinson (Vice-Principal) leads the ambassador roles with the children and they are invovled in whole school decisions for worship, faith and charity developments/initiatives.
