What have the school council done?

Raffle Ticket Prize

2016

We were asked by Mrs. Harrison and Mrs. Aston to think of an alternative prize for our raffle ticket draw on Fridays. As we are a healthy school, we decided that sweets and treats weren't the best way to go for our prizes, so we sent a letter to our Headteacher with some of our ideas! We then recieved a letter back and our idea of having a 'prize box' has been taken forward! Mrs. Harrison has filled a prize box with lots of exciting gifts for the raffle winners. The raffle ticket prize on Fridays will now be much healthier!

'Where we feel safe'- Follow up!

2016

After analysing our 'Where we feel safe' map, we have identified key areas in the school where we don't feel 100% safe and happy! As a school council, we are targetting these areas and our first mission is to improve the KS2 playground. We are currently working on creating 'Zones' in the playground, including a 'Green Zone' and a 'Chill Zone.' We are also developing a clear set of play ground rules and hope to display these somewhere on our play ground. 

'Where we feel safe'

2015

As a school council, we created a map of the school aiming to find out where our peers felt safe. We then used this map to identify areas where we felt safe in school and equally, not as safe. Thankfully, we discovered that nearly all of the children in our school feel safe in most places! It is mainly the places where younger children feel unfamiliar, so we suggested tours of unfamiliar places to the KS1 teachers. Another place where we feel unsafe at times, is the Junior Playground, especially the football pitch. This years school council aim to solve this problem!

New Adventure Playground

2014

The school council worked alongside the PTA to get a new adventure playground put onto the junior playground. The equipment replaces our old adventure playground and has created a fantastic new space for our junior children here at Mossley. The children helped design the layout of the playground and decided on the equipment that it would be made up of by listening to the voices of their peers.

Positive Parking Tickets

2014

The school council put their heads together to come up with a scheme that would promote 'thoughtful' parking outside our school. They listened to the voice of our neighbours and local residents and came up with a 'Positive Parking Ticket' scheme. They ran a competition to design a parking ticket that praised great parking. After selecting a winner (Well done Alice!!) the school council then went out along boundary lane in their high vis jackets and praised parking where it was due!
