We have had our first school council meeting this year and the new Year 6 children are excited to undertake their acting roles as school council leads until Democracy Day which is due to take place on the 11th October 2017. We have already discussed ideas for our action plan as well as a calendar of events that we will be undertaking across the year.

A Summary of 2016 – 2017

We have been very busy year working on a number of projects. Our matheletics club ran very successfully following applications and support in startup from Mr Siddique, the school maths leader. We have also worked hard to cost out the fruit tuck shop and after a successful trial in Summer 1 we will aim to make this a permanent feature. We raised over £450 so far for our chosen charity, Cancer Research UK as well! We undertook cross site visits where we completed learning walks, discussed cross site projects and shared our good practice across sites! You can take a look at our action plan review below. Keep a look out for our second newsletter of the year which will be available this half term!

Our Vision Statement 2016 – 2017

School Council Action Plan 2016 – 2017 Reviewed


The School Council have elected their new representatives after an energised campaign process and election. We are now in full swing for the new year and have completed the action plan, calendar of events and a new vision statement. As the school is getting bigger, we are now holding KS1 and KS2 meetings separately to allow all members to have a clear voice. Year 6 are running both meetings. We are excited to announce the Mayor of Hackney will be visiting us in the Spring Term and that we are starting our cross site visits later this term. If you have any questions for us, you can email us at schoolcouncil@vs.hackney.sch.uk
