School Council Meeting 08.03.18

Present: Marcus, Noah, Billy, Li Li, Evie and Jenson

Items discussed:

  • Arrival of 30 new trees from the Woodland Trust

The children unwrapped the parcel and we identified the trees:

10 Silver Birch

10 Cherry blossom

10 Rowan

The SC children went outside with Mrs Delf and Miss Krug to look for potential places to plant the trees.

They noticed a bare patch at the corner of the Wild Tunnel where some trees could be planted. They also liked the idea of having some trees in the corner at the far end of the field, as this could act as an area of shade, once the trees have grown. The trees have been stored in the greenhouse ready for planting as soon as possible.


  • Noah said it would be good to have an Easter competition. He suggested a ‘Decorate the Egg’ competition.
  • The SC children will distribute templates for anyone wanting to enter. The prize for each class will be an Easter egg.
  • Entries must be handed into your class teacher by Friday 23rd March. Members of the SC will judge the best entries. Please make sure name, age and class are written on the back of your entry. Good luck!

Playground markings

  • We discussed our school playground markings, which are beginning to look a bit worn in places.
  • We looked at pictures showing different ideas for playground markings.
  • We will put up a poster showing a range of different markings and the children can place a sticker against their favourite choices.

Trim Trail

  • Jenson said we could use some of our Sports Grant to improve our Trim Trail. Everyone agreed that this would be a good idea.

Autumn Term 1st Half

The School Council conducted a survey to find out what play equipment the children liked. New stock was then ordered, with money from the School Fund. The School Council members checked the delivery note against the items ordered. The children spoke to the whole school in assembly and demonstrated how to use some of the equipment. They explained the importance of looking after the play equipment.




Autumn Term 2nd Half

This half term, the School Council is raising awareness of anti-bullying. The theme for 2017 is ‘All different, all equal’.  The children are organising a competition linked to this theme. Pupils may create a poster, write a poem, or a story. The School Council will choose winners from each class. Work will be displayed in school during Anti-bullying Week.

School Council 2016/17

The aims of our School Council are to enhance the lives of the whole school community.  The School Council meets regularly to discuss matters related to school improvement.


Children can make suggestions to their class representatives either directly or by putting their comment into the suggestions box. The School Council also communicates with the rest of the school via meetings, assemblies, and posters.  



The Speaker of The House of Commons Award 2017

The School Council has been discussing this year's competition. They want to promote new enterprise skills in school and involve the community. Click on the logo above to go to the website to find out more.


Past School Councils:

Have talked about how we stay safe at Ludham Primary School by interviewing people who work in the school and asking questions about how they ensure good health and safety in and outside of school. They also helped to compile a questionnaire about safety.


Discussed ways to develop our outdoor environment. The children looked at a range of outdoor equipment to extend our Trim Trail. Pupils voted on their preferred choices of play equipment and the Parents’ Committee agreed to fund some of these items.  


Tycoon in Schools Competition 2016

The School Council discussed ideas for businesses which could be run in our school, to make a profit.

Three teams were created and business plans were submitted to the Peter Jones Foundation Tycoon in Schools Competition, on 30th September 2016. All three plans have been accepted. Our trading period runs from 31st October - 17th December.   


Here are the company names chosen by each business team:

1. 'Pampervan' - a luxury campervan shaped box filled with toiletries

2. 'Birdie Brunch' - a large pine cone, bird feeder, filled with suet and seeds

3. 'Hands On' - A picture frame, containing a print of a child's hand, + name and date


All monies raised from the 3 businesses will go to Village Water, a charity supported by our school. Village Water helps to dig bore holes, to access fresh drinking water, in places like Zambia. Better sanitation and fresh, clean water helps to reduce the risks of poor health from waterborne diseases.

2015 Parliament Flag Design Project 

In 2015, our school was chosen to design a flag to represent North Norfolk, to mark the 750th anniversary of the Montfort parliament which paved the way to the House of Commons.


2015 Anti-Bullying Competition

The School Council regularly discuss ways we can stay safe and look at anti-bullying measures, focussing on developing positive behaviour strategies. Our school ‘Anti-bullying Charter’ was compiled using the children’s suggestions and ideas. The children also participated in a ‘Stamp out Bullying’ Campaign and they designed Anti-bullying posters to display around school, as part of an Anti-bullying poster competition.


Speaker’s School Council Award 2014

In May 2014, the School Council was delighted to be selected as ‘runner-up in the 7-11 years category of the 2014 Speaker’s School Council Awards. The judges were really impressed with their project ‘Ludham’s Leading Learners’. The children looked at ways they could become involved in leading various learning activities across the school. Norman Lamb, MP, presented our School Council with a certificate and engraved plaque as a celebration of their work.
