How are the councillors elected?

Here at Middlestown Primary, we have a very active School Council. In September, all children from Year One to Six can put themselves forward to become a school council member. They make a short speech about why they believe they would be a good ambassador for their class. Their class then vote and the three children with the most votes go forward for the School Council Elections that are held in the hall. During these elections, the children vote on special voting slips; the voting is completed in booths and pupils place their voting slip in a ballot box. The votes are then added up and the girl and boy with the most votes are assigned as the school councillors for their class.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is the role of the Middlestown’s School Council?

School councillors hold weekly meetings with their classes. They run to a set agenda and they make notes in their books to then feedback to the rest of school council during their weekly meetings with Miss Chichangiri. Miss Chichangiri guides the meetings but it is school council who decide on the issues they wish to discuss. A typical meeting involves each class sharing feedback regarding their class meetings and school council coming up with ideas to solve any issues they may have. During meetings, they also discuss charities they want to raise money for and methods of doing this; this year, they chose to raise money for Children in Need, Comic Relief and the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.

 

 

 

 

School Councillors unanimously feel that their voices are valued and heard and this in turn means that all pupils do, as the school council represent the voices of all the pupils at Middlestown Primary Academy. It is an important and often challenging position, yet our current school councillors have risen to the challenge and done us all proud!

Sitlington Parish Council Visit

The School Council were visited by Sitlington Parish Council.

The Parish Councillors explained their roles, their passion for serving the community and provided lots of interesting ideas for the Middlestown School Councillors to think about.

Together, they placed their ideas on a tree and together we will watch these ideas grow!

NSPCC Rocks

The School Council organised for Middlestown Primary Academy to take part in the NSPCC Rocks competition.

Each year competed against each other by working hard in school and at home to answer multiplication questions.

Well done to Year 5 for rocking out and winning the whole school competition!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

World Book Day

To celebrate World Book Day, the School Council asked Middlestown Primary Academy to attend school dressed as their favourite book character.

They also encouraged their peers to get crafty and design a wooden spoon as a book character.

The School Council displayed all the inventive entries in our school library. Check it out!

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
