Merley First School

School Council



Our school council is a group of children who are elected to represent the views of all pupils in our school and to help improve our school.

There are two representatives from each class from Reception to Year 4. These representatives are elected by their classmates every term. In the Spring Term, we are joined by 2 members from our Reception class.  Each representative wears an official 'School Council' badge.

Class representative’s feedback to their class as soon as possible after our meetings and the minutes of the meeting are placed on the School Council Board in the corridor each class has a suggestion book. Children are able to write in their suggestions and their class representatives can bring them along to the school council meetings to be discussed. 

Paddington Bear's Journey

As a school we are following Paddington Bear's journey around the world with UNICEF. Every month we receive a personalised postcard and information to help us explore a different country with Paddington and learn about the life of a child who lives there.

We believe Paddington’s Postcards is a wonderful way to teach our children about how other children and families live around the world.
