School Council and Eco Council

Each year, a School Council is elected consisting of a Chairperson, Secretary and Spokespeople from each year group.

An Eco Council is also elected with representatives across the school.

The councils meet regularly, sharing views from across the school, and seeking to make democratic decisions to improve the school for everyone!

In addition to the roles on the School Council and Eco Council, our older pupils enjoy a number of other responsibilities:

  • Librarians who organise the school library and support younger pupils by reading with them and helping them to choose texts;
  • Monitors who count weekly team points and Number Kit points;
  • Our Year 6 children all Buddy a Reception child for the whole year, supporting with a wide range of activities, including being a friendly face at playtime and lunchtime.
  • Science Ambassadors.

Links with Other Schools

We have made links with Xetolacw Community School, a pre-K to Grade 12 facility in Mount Currie, British Columbia, Canada.  The school provides a positive and empowering learning environment where Lilwat culture, language and values are taught and celebrated alongside  the academic curriculum.

Owl Class wrote letters to the children of Grade 6 and have been really excited to share information about our community in Saxlingham and to be able to find out about living in a contrasting community in a very different part of the world.
