Whitecliffe Primary School has a very active school council. Mrs McQuade leads the school council and works very hard with them. Every September we elect a boy and girl from each class to serve on the council for one year. Our Class 1 children are supported by older children.
Class councils are held weekly and the school council reps take suggestions and requests to the meetings.
Previous school council have interviewed for the Head Teacher post, looked at plans and talked with builders about the Whitecliffe Children’s Centre and reported to Governors.
Class 1 – Peyton Limon and Riley Bulmer
Class 2 – Oli Nicholson and Casey Sayers
Class 3 – Theo Vodden and Scarlet Noble
Class 4 – Billy Enderwick and Isabelle Riddiough
Class 5 – Elle McCormick and Bradley Astrop
We are an Eco school which means we recycle paper, deal with dripping taps, keep our school garden tidy and save energy by turning off lights, computers and smart boards when they are not in use. We hold an Eco green flag award. We also run a healthy tuck shop.
The footpath between Carlin How and Skinningrove was in a very bad state of repair and was very overgrown. As we often use the path, we decided to write some letters to persuade the council to repair it. We wrote to our local Member of Parliament and members of the council. We were very pleased that we got a response telling us that they would repair the path.
We have collected over 200 mobile phones for recycling helping us raise £300 for our school funds. We still need lots more, if you can help please contact Mrs MqQuade on our school number – 01287 640414.
The bus shelter in Skinningrove was removed last year because some youths had vandalised it. One day in September it rained very heavily and we got very wet waiting for the school bus. We decided we would write some letters to ask if we could have a new bus stop. Out letters were sent to the Council. A few weeks later we were told that we would get our new bus stop. Spike the Hedgehog came to one of our assemblies and brought us a letter thanking us for writing to the council and telling them about the bus stop.
