Here at Shap C of E Primary School we have a very good group of School Council members. Our Council is made up of children from Year 2 to Year 6. At the start of the year anyone who would like to be on the Council had to explain to our classes why we are worthy to be in School Council and what qualities we would bring to it. Following the presentations, everyone is the class would anonymously vote for who they would like to be their class School Council representative.
Some of our roles within the School Council are: to organise fundraising events, make suggestions on how we can improve our school and this year we are beginning to focus on how we in school can help to care for the environment.
We are always pleased to share our ideas at meetings and are honoured to be in School Council.
During our meetings we always discuss ideas that other children in the school have put in our suggestion box. After the meetings we feed back to our classes what we have discussed.

This year for Children in Need we asked children to come to school dressed in spots, in return for a £1. We had some very spotty children in school that day.
We arrange a few games that children could have a go at these included: guess the name of the teddy and guess how many spots (sweets) are in the jar.
Also we had a spot cake sale during playtime where children donated cakes and then we were allowed to buy and enjoy one! Yum yum.
