School Council Autumn Term Update
The School Council has been extremely busy this half term. We created a video to help support the NSPCC Speak out and Stay Safe project. This campaign is to highlight to children the importance of keeping yourself safe and speaking out if something or someone upsets or hurts you. Our video has been shared on ITV Anglia news, social media, Peterborough Telegraph and the NSPCC are using our video to help children in other schools. The video also features Buddy, the NSPCC speech bubble mascot who visited us during one of our assemblies along with some kind people who volunteer for the NSPCC.

NSPCC – Speak out & Stay Safe :
In October, School Council members in Year 3 – 6 had an amazing opportunity to visit the Palace of Westminster in London. Mr Epton-Smith, Mr Smee, Mrs Gascoigne and School Governor, Mrs Foreman, came with us. We got to see lots of Members of Parliament debating in the House of Commons and the House of Lords. We were then lucky enough to meet Peterborough MP Fiona Onasanya who joined us for an activity on voting and democracy. Fiona also answered lots of questions from us about her experience of becoming the new MP for Peterborough. She kindly stayed and had a photo with us.

Children in Need 2017
In the run up to Children in Need, we sold official Pudsey and Blush merchandise across the school during our break and lunchtimes. On the official Children in Need day, children and adults came to school in their pyjamas. In total, the school raised £600 for disadvantage children across the UK. Our efforts also featured on the Peterborough Telegraph website.

We had great fun helping at the Winter Wonderland. To help promote the event, some members of the School Council in Year 1 and 2 went out into the local community to deliver some promotional flyers. In the weeks building up to the event we sold raffle tickets during our lunchtime.
On the day of Winter Wonderland, many of us came into school to run three stalls which were the tombola, lucky dip and raffle. In total our School Council stalls raised £571.61.
Moz the Monster –School Council brought Monsters to life!
The department store, John Lewis ran a 'Bringing Skills to Life' scheme which was accessible to all school across the country.

School Council Star of the Autumn Term
This child, in Year 1, was awarded the School Council ‘star of the term’. She has played an active part in every School Council project during the autumn term, which has meant giving up some of her break and lunchtimes. This student is also an excellent role model for other children across the school and has taken responsibility for looking after the school fish. To celebrate her contribution, she has been awarded some Moz the Monster merchandise.
