Pupil Council

Hi Boys and Girls,

Welcome to our new school year 2020-21!

 

In Brooklands we value your ideas, suggestions, and participation so much, through all that we do in school, so this year we will find new ways in which to connect with each other, whilst our class 'bubbles' are in place. 

 

Watch this space for idea and information sharing sessions, as we tackle new projects, from the comfort of our own classrooms!

 

I hope this finds you all well, and ready to start an exciting new year back in Brooklands, where your opinions and ideas matter as much as ever!

 

We can't wait to hear about your hopes for our school, and all that you have to share!

 

Take care and I will be in touch soon.

 

Best Wishes for the new school year, from Mrs Smart  

 

 

Academic Year: 2019-20

 

Our Pupil Councillors are looking ahead to projects to tackle within the new year...

 

We are keen to develop our outdoor grounds and were delighted to be awarded a grant from Love Live Here, to the value of £1400 to help us towards our goals! We have plans for a sensory garden, with an outdoor classroom space using logs as seats, so watch this space! :)

 

Inspire Business Park are kindly donating fruit trees for our grounds, as well as providing a gardener to help us carry out our projects, and learn new skills along the way.

 

Mr McMillan our caretaker is helping us to build equipment for our playground, and The Men's Shed have built an outdoor kitchen for our infant playground, which is wonderful!

 

We are still collecting your old school uniforms, so that we may run a 'Pre-Loved Uniform Shop' next year, which will help the environment and our purse strings when buying school uniforms throughout the year.

 

The Waste Education Bus is booked once more, where the nursery children, as well as P2, P4, P6 and P7 classes will learn all about reusing and recycling our waste, with an opportunity for some arts and crafts using junk materials too!

 

Another main focus for this year is to tackle single - use plastics in school and at home. One pupil councillor has already designed a brochure to educate and persuade us all to rethink our choices when it comes to single-use plastics, and we look forward to making these vital changes in school as well as at home.

 

As a pupil council committed to looking after each other and the environment in which we live, we know that if we all make small changes, together we can achieve something great! 

 

Thank you to everyone for being a part of something very special, and very important within our school and community as a whole!

 

 

 

 

 

PUPIL COUNCIL

 
In Brooklands Primary School we foster a sense of pride and independence in our children, encouraging each child to respect themselves, others and the environment in which they live.
 
We demonstrate this by showing each child that we value their opinions and listen to what they have to say. Through our Pupil Council every child in Brooklands has the opportunity to raise their suggestions and become involved in real-life decision making around the school.
 
Last year the Pupil Council worked to improve the playground environment through planting plants, establishing a quiet friendship corner and by selecting new games for each year group to play with.
 
We began tackling issues surrounding transport, encouraging more children to walk and cycle to school, thus improving health and fitness whilst making the roads around our school a safer place to be. We have worked in partnership with Sustrans to promote sustainable modes of transport, putting cycle training in place for many more children within our school as well as organising Bikers’ Breakfasts and Walk to School events throughout the year.
 
This year the Pupil Council look forward to building on their successes within school, whilst looking at how we can also help others by organising events to raise money for charity.
