The aim of our School Council is to support the school and give our children a voice on issues they are interested in. As a group we meet as often as we can and discuss any ideas or concerns our pupils have. We support and raise funds for causes within our community and beyond, giving children the opportunity to appreciate the diversity of life beyond the school gates. Within school we listen to our pupils ideas on how to change or improve the school and feedback to our Senior Leadership Team.
So, let’s take a look at what we have achieved so far this academic year…
During UK Parliament Week (1-7 November 2020), we wanted to find out more about Parliament. Some school councillors were able to have a virtual question and answer session with MP Sarah Owen. They thought of specific questions to ask her and she responded to all very candidly. We really enjoyed it and hope to do more things with Parliament in the future. Sarah has even offered to come and meet us face to face when we are able to meet people again.
With support from parents, our children collected wonderful food items to help the work of Luton Foodbank – who, in the past six years, have delivered more than 35,000 food parcels to the local community. Especially this year, the Foodbank are very busy helping families. You can also make a monetary donation by clicking on

Every year Children in Need focus our attention on children less fortunate than us in the UK and abroad. Our School Council’s themes this year was ‘Wear Spotty for Pudsey’ and it was lovely to see children and adults wearing something spotty or yellow to school on a bleak November morning. Our thanks as always go to our parents who join in with these events as we raised £687.74.
Our Christmas Jumper Day went down a hit as we managed to raise £362.23! We were treated to a wide range of colourful and festive jumpers, from both the children and staff. A big thank you to our generous community as always!
