  • Police into talk about Anti Bullying


Following on from the discussion about whether pupils have enough homework it was brought to the table once more for the pupils to debate and discuss.

In a vote, the SC a large majority now felt enough homework was being given out but that they would like more art/craft activities.

MW pointed out that homework is not compulsory so should the pupils who actually do their homework be rewarded?


The SC unanimously agreed that pupils who complete their homework should be rewarded.



Mr Jenkins apologised for not being able to arrange a valentine’s disco before half term, however there will be on organised after half term.


The SC felt that they would like to be involved in helping to arrange and organise.


Any other business

Following a chat with the school’s catering manager Mrs Shanklin, Mr Jenkins put forward the idea of a Mother’s Day Lunch and Father’s Day lunch to be organised in the school, much like the Christmas Day lunch.


The SC loved the idea and wanted to put it forward to Mrs Thomas as an idea to develop.
