The School Council gives the pupils of Malin Bridge Primary School a voice. School Councillors (one boy and one girl from each class) are elected annually by their peers once they have written and presented their manifesto to their class. School Council meetings are then held every two weeks.
We believe that the School Council encourages pupils to understand and value the ideals of British Values, democracy, and citizenship. Our School Council will have the opportunity this year to impact on lunchtimes, the school environment and develop their own personal development in leadership and independence.
We look forward to seeing what this year’s school council will achieve. Watch the new pages for updates…
Highlights of 2022/2023
Last year the school councillors played a key role in collecting ideas from their peers and, working in collaboration with an external graphic designer, shaped and designed a key feature wall in the upper KS2 hall. The children were so excited by this and we are thrilled with the end result.
The councillors have also created a series of Podcasts for the school website to allow parents and pupils to learn more about what we do here at Malin bridge. Watch this space for more- will they be the next Jake Humphreys? Please click on the link to listen to the podcasts:
The following table gives an outline of the programme for the 2022-2023 school year.
Highlights of 2020/21
We learnt about protecting the environment and volunteering by doing a toy collection! The toys were then cleaned thoroughly and distributed to parts of our school including the nursery, after-school club and lunchtime provision. We were also lucky enough to be involved in the Sheffield Children’s Hospital fundraising project called Bears of Sheffield and decorated our school bear!
Highlights of 2019/20
As part of our topic about being honest and trustworthy, we looked at fake news and media bias. The children met a journalist and created their own fake news stories. Their project was featured in The Star: Sheffield schoolchildren learn about journalistic integrity with help from The Star
They also chatted with Paulette Edwardes on BBC Radio Sheffield:
