Climate Council and School Council

At Worstead School, we have two opportunities for children to specifically have an impact on how the school is run and to represent their fellow pupils. Each year a new School Council and Climate Council are voted in, following presentations in classes and a whole school 'hustings' to determine the key Year 6 leadership roles of Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary.

 

School Council are responsible for many different aspects of school life, and meet regularly with Mr Read, the headteacher:

  • Suggesting events and fitting them into the school year
  • Planning and running special events
  • Supporting charity and community work
  • Showing prospective parents around
  • Passing on children's general concerns and wishes
  • Representing the school to visitors
  • Interviewing prospective employees
  • And many more duties that crop up during the year

 

Climate Council (previously Eco Council) focus specifically on how school life impacts on the local and global environment, in conjunction with Ms Eyles, our Forest School Lead. This includes:

  • Nurturing and protecting the wildlife on and around our school
  • Encouraging plants and wild animals to make their home in Worstead
  • Having a say and acting on issues of energy conservation around the school
  • Suggesting ways that the school itself could help to protect our environment

 

During 2019, School Council were able to interview Sir Norman Lamb MP about his career at Westminster, and Climate Council brought in paper-free newsletters and helped to save energy on heating our old building!
