 The School Council

We hold meetings frequently to improve our school and have our say...

We have decided to improve our playground

- We have decided on whole school rules to display

- We want to have a brighter playground

- We have contacted a local company to design with our help the playground rules

-We have to collect ideas for the type of equipment is needed at playtime.

NOW - We have a brighter school playground as the school fence has been painted, the playground rules have been agreed and put on the wall and we have more playground games at lunchtime with Playleaders.

 - We have decided to ask the school PTA for some money to fund markings on the playground

- We want to interview the staff members and put the interviews on the school website

 - We want to organise the Red Nose Day events

 - We want to hold a competition for NOT dropping litter in the playground

NOW - The staff interviews are on our school website, we had a fabulous RED NOSE Day and raised £500 for people less fortunate than ourselves and there is less litter on our school playground.

  - We have asked all pupils about changing the names of our classes and will be discussing in future meetings about what they could be.

 - We have looked at how to improve our playground so that there are quiet areas for some pupils.

NOW - We have changed the names of our classes to ACORNS, HAZEL, HORSE CHESTNUT, WILLOW AND OAK and we have improved seating areas for outside.

- We were asked by the Head Teacher to help organise a 'healthy and positive mental health week'
- We discussed our ideas and gathered them from the rest of the school
- We looked at what positive mental health was 

THE WEEK was a HUGE success and the whole school took part as well as some of our parents. We had Yoga sessions, positive mindfulness sessions, making smoothies and circuit training.

 

What do our Parents / Carers say?

November 2017

  • 'Our daughter has made excellent progress. She has a good relationship with her teacher. Any issues I have ever had have been dealt with promptly.'

  • 'Both children very happy at school!'

  • 'Amazing school. So glad we picked this school. Help with additional needs is second to none. Thanks Wimboldsley.'

  • 'Really happy with progress throughout.'

  • 'Our little girl loves school and so do we. Thank you for all you do.'

  • 'Fantastic school!'

  • 'He loves the school and we are very happy with our choice.'

  • 'Wonderful school with a warm family environment. Everybody looks after each other. All teachers are approachable and caring.'

  • 'Can’t say enough how happy I am with Wimboldsley School.'

  • 'Amazing school where children feel safe and constantly striving to achieve every child’s full potential.'

  • 'Great school, I wish mine was as good as this 35 years ago!'

  • 'Very happy, thank you all.'

  • 'A* school.'

  • 'We cannot thank school enough for the continued support, dedication and commitment you give to our child.'

  • 'My child absolutely loves this school!'

We responded to your thoughts:

  • 'More opportunities to do a wider range of sporting after school clubs (even if there was a fee to be paid) e.g. football.' After school sports - at least one sports based after school clubs each term, additional in Spring 2018 2 lunchtime sports clubs.

  • 'I agree with some homework, but I feel homework should not be set over school holidays as this is a time for them to relax after a busy term of learning and have a break.' Homework is set so it has a deadline that allows for it to be done before or after school holidays.
