Anti-Bullying Week

School Council met to update the school's anti-bullying policy and redesigned the poster as shown below. This included a lot of suggestions for adjusting both the presentation and wording of the document. The children also decided to simplify the wording for the KS1 version of posters.

Can we increase the amount of home reading that we do?

School Council met this week to talk about Read to Succeed and made suggestions about how we could improve reading at Southroyd. As part of a Lent challenge, we set ourselves the target to improve our own reading. We talked about the benefits of reading and how we could improve reading in school and in the wider community. See the minutes from the meeting dated 16.3.17 and then again 9th November 2017.

Leeds Schools' Summit October 2018

School councillors represented Southroyd at the Schools's Summit at Leeds Civic Hall. The children had an opportunity to meet current Leeds council members in the council chambers and ask them about their role. At the same time, the children supported the council in how to allocate their budget for Children's activities within the West region.

United Nations Global Goals

The school council worked with Chitra, Chetna and Chaitali to think about the United Nations Global Goals and more that we can do to help sustain our amazing planet. The councillors fed back to class their findings and discussions had with our Indian partners.

What is Equality? How can we be heroes of social justice in Southroyd?

As part of our half term focus on social justice and equality, in January 2017, we looked as a school at heroes like Martin Luther KIng and Malala Yousufzai, and their stance for equality. We asked class councils to rethink about how they can be "heroes of social justice" within Southroyd.
