Exec School Council

Exec have been super busy pulling together and communicating about all the amazing projects that have happened over this academic year amongst all the year groups. We are very proud of everyone.

Our main focus this year has been upon the Values and embedding these into our school system. Year 10 have helped us do this. We have communicated to staff and students about what our values are and how they were chosen. We have also fundraised and created the Values trees which help to communicate the values around school.
We look forward to embedding these further next year.

School Council Training

On Friday 21st October the newly elected school council reps had their training session.

After Wednesday’s election this was the first time that students from each year group were able to get together and build their team working skills and explore some of the issues that school council will be focusing on this academic year.

Year groups began with the spaghetti tower challenge to help consider the different skills they may need as school council reps and to get to know one another better.

Following this challenge each year group worked on their focus. This is a task to get the school council reps started and to allow them time to gather other ideas from their own forms.

The focuses for this year are: 

Year 7: Transition – How can we make your journey from primary to secondary better? 

Year 8: Improving the library

Year 9: The Wellbeing Room 

Year 10: Merit criteria and award assemblies

Year 11: The Pupil Blog Page

Make sure you keep an ear out from your form’s reps and keep a check on the Pupil Voice page for further School Council updates.

School Council You Said We did…. What we did in 2015/2016

School Council are sharing in assemblies this week about the values we as a school have created. There will be more on this in the next few weeks. Please see below all the things school council got up to last year and the changes they have made…

You Say: We Did:
YEAR 7

We need more up to date books and resources in the library

 

 

Ran a book sale to raise money for the library.

YEAR 8

We need some money to raise funds for things around school

 

We would like a say as to what happens in the canteen.

 

Organised a dress up day for year 7 & 8 to raise over £400 for school. This is being put towards helping improve stocks in the library.

Whole school feedback was given to the canteen about foods, things people thought were good and things that could be improved.  We are hoping to launch a food focus group this year.

YEAR 9

The homework diary layout needs changing.

The medical room needs updating

 

Some changes have been made to the diary to ensure that there is an area for students to write a to do list.

Year 9 are continuing to work with the well-being ambassadors to redecorate and improve the medical room and make it into a well-being room, a space for people to have some space.

YEAR 10

Nobody reads the code of conduct

 

The school council twitter page doesn’t get used.

People said the songs in assembly needed updating.

 

We rewrote the code of conduct and made them way more pupil friendly.

We have included more regular posts to keep students informed about what we are up to.

New songs, suggested by school council, are to be learnt this year in assembly.

YEAR 11

There is no platform for students to share what they have done.

 

We have actively posted on the student voice page engaging the school and wider community in aspects of school life.

Exec

What do we stand for as a school?

 

Conducted a whole school values project which has culminated in the creation of AGGS school values. These will be shared and taken for staff to feedback at the beginning of the new academic year.
