Our School Council
At Crabtree Farm we greatly value the opinions of all members of our community, but particularly our pupils. From Year One to Year Six there is one school councillor per class, in Year Six each class also has a deputy school councillor.
In Year 6 the two councillors from each class are the head and deputy pupils for the school.
The School Council meet a few times each half term to discuss different subjects relating to the school and how they can be involved with the local area.
Each class has a school council book. The class council representative uses this to write down the class's suggestions, which are shared at the school council meetings and notes from the meetings are recorded, to feed back to the class. This ensures that their fellow pupils are informed about what they are discussing, and all pupils can have an input.
The children on the School Council also take part in Primary Parliament, which happens three times a year. The councillors go to the Council House in Nottingham City and work with other schools to address issues about Nottingham.
