School Council

Our school council plays a vital part in the running of our school. Every week the children meet to discuss issues in school and to make suggestions for further action. The school council members meet with Mrs Couling to review the things which happen in school and to see what improvements can be made to our school.


School Council Aims 

The following aims were discussed and chosen by the school council.  

  • To help ensure the school is attractive and appealing to the children, staff and visitors. 

  • To be good role models showing kindness, helpfulness and to show respect to all. 

  • Respectfully share the views of their class.   

  • To help the school improve any school issues. 

  • Make our learning environments the best they can be. 

  • Children and adults to be happy, have fun and be safe.  


Focus 2023/24

The focus of our school council this year will be to promote healthy food choices in school. This is to lead the school in achieving the 'Food and Nutrition Quality Mark' by the end of the year.



The Food and Nutrition Charter Mark has been developed by a local multi-agency group of health, food and nutritional practitioners and education professionals.

The Charter has been developed to support schools to introduce and promote healthier behaviours to enable pupils and individuals within the wider school community maintain healthy weight. In addition, the charter recognises the dedication of schools within the city in contributing towards the health and wellbeing of their pupils, staff and local communities. 

The Food and Nutrition Charter is one of the five health and wellbeing related Charter Marks that contribute to the Sunderland Healthy Schools Award. 


They will take part in and organise a variety of events across the year as part of this focus which we will promote on this page.



Healthy Eating Assembly

The School Council have been working hard to promote healthy food choices in our school.  They made a fruit salad together and then led a whole school assembly to inform the children about how easy it is to make good food choices
