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:
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:
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!
