On Monday 30th January the school councillors from all three schools in our partnership met up for our termly meeting at Highfield House. We were lucky enough to have Mrs Anderson, who works at Swaythling Primary School, come speak to us becoming a School of Sanctuary. She taught us what the difference is between a refugee and an asylum seeker and informed us about the steps that we must take in order to become a School of Sanctuary. As a group, we came up with ideas to make our school a safe and welcoming environment and have plans to share our vision with our school and the wider community.
In the afternoon, we spoke about how we can conserve energy in our schools and in the community. We have decided to have an Eco Day which we will be planning for the summer term. In our conference today, we came up with the rules that we would like to impose to help us save energy.
Today we went to Highfield House for our school council meeting. The school councillors from all three schools across Mrs Montague’s partnership were there.
We had a very fun and exciting day where we made some new friends whilst taking part in some school council related activities. We thought about the qualities that made a good school councillor and we discussed the contribution that pupil voice has in our school.
We also came up with many ideas on how to make our schools a better place. Together we came up with an action plan for each school that we will take back to our classes so that they can give us more suggestions on how we can continue with our projects. Some of the things we would like to improve include our green space, an energy saving scheme and adding a gardening area to our school.
We look forward to working on these ideas throughout the year.

The school council meets every fortnight with Miss Silverman to discuss actions you would like to happen in our school. We then make decisions based on your suggestions.
Below are the minutes from these meetings:
We also meet termly with our partnership schools, Holy Family Primary School and Bitterne Park Primary School.
Every class has a suggestion box in their class for you to put your suggestions in. We will then discuss your suggestions in our school council meetings.
