Shap CE Primary SchoolA Safe Branch from which to Soar

Welcome toShap CE Primary SchoolA Safe Branch from which to Soar

School Council

On the return to school in September, all children were told about the School Council. The role of the School Councilors was explained and children thought about what qualities a School Council member would need.  Children then had a week to go away and prepare their election speech ready for the hustings the following week. 

Children delivered their speech to the children and staff in their classes. Children were then asked to vote for the two children that they believed would be the best members of the council. 

We would like to present our new council members. 

They are all extremely enthusiastic and busy organising charity events and thinking about what their focus of the year will be.  

The Ankoma Dreamers - PJ Day - Friday 14th February 2020

In September 2020, we are very happy to be welcoming some of the Ankoma Dreamers.  These are a group of 7 children who live in the Ankoma village, in Ghana that have been selected to travel to the United Kingdom. Their dream is to build friendships, explore cultures and connect classrooms in the UK with theirs in Ghana.


Over the year, we will be organising various fund raising events. The first was a Pyjama Day, where all children and staff could come to school in their pyjamas in exchange for a small donation. 


We raised £75.60 for the charity. Thank you very much for all of your donations.

Meet the 2018-19 School Council

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.

Children came to school dressed in red. 

We held a competition to design your own 'Red Nose!' We had some fantastic entries. 

These are the prize winners and their designs. Well done. 

November 2019 - Children in Need fundraiser

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.


December 2018 - Christmas Jumper Day

To raise money for Save the Children, we decided to ask everyone to join us for our Christmas dinner in Christmas jumper. Everyone came dressed for the occasion and helped raise money for the excellent charity.
