School Council

Have a look at our playground survey which has been completed by 3RW

The new School Council from January 2017 is here:




Molly & Samir










Samir & Seren










The School Council  have been busy collecting opinion on which areas of the playground at Cotham Grove children would like to improve. We developed a survey which we sent out to all of the classes. The children in each class will be able to vote and give 3 preferences for an area of the playground they would like to improve. Mr Bell and the PTAF will then be able to look at our top choices and make some improvements! 

 Here are some quotes from the children's application forms: 

 Year 2:

  • "I would make sure that I listen to other children's ideas and views. If their idea was better for our school then I would go with theirs"
  • "If I was a member of the school council I would listen to all the children and we could vote. The one with the most votes would win. I think voting is fair."
  • "I would go with the most wanted idea a bit like a vote, even if it was different to my view."
  • Regarding self-help, one of our cooperative values, "I would encourage other children to try and work something out themselves before getting help from a grown-up."
  • Democracy, "I think everybody should be heard and everyone should have a say."

Year 4:

  • "I will go with their idea only if it's sensible. 
  • "I will speak for them first and make sure they're heard before me."
  • Equality, "When I see people who do not have equal rights and opportunities I will speak up for them and try to change things. I want to make the school a fair place for everyone."
  • "Self-responsibility means that you are in charge."

Year 5/6:

  • "I think that equality is very important because you need to treat each other fairly. If you want to be treated good you treat other people good."
  • Before taking an idea to the School Council, "I will listen to them. If it is a good idea I will take it to the School Council. If it is not then I will do a vote in the class."
  • " I would promote solidarity and to help people work together. I think you can help people become competent by encouraging them."
