Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils.
It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
World Book Day 2018
We are looking forward to celebrating World Book Day in School on the 1st March 2018.
We are encouraging children to follow the theme of the '100 Books to read' before they leave each Phase. Please be advised that Reception and Nursery may follow the Year 1 and 2 as there are extra titles that apply to them!
Please see the attached sheets for the book list and authors to get your inspiration!
Today the Readathon total was revealed in School after a Month of reading and raising money.
The whole school worked so hard to gather the sponsorship for their reading throughout March.
As a School we raised an amazing £961.09!
The School Council and Miss Purcell would like to say a massive well done to St Rose for showing such amazing generosity and compassion during Lent for this worthy childrens charity!

Our Amazing World Book day Catwalk...
Thank you so much everyone for your amazing enthusiasm today and parents and guardians for providing such fabulous costumes!
The school Council have worked very closely with Mrs. Beddall on the big read project.
We set a whole school competition to design a bench using characters from our favourite books.
We recieved lots of excellent entries and then had to circle the ones we thought were particularly original and creative.
Mrs. Beddall then put all of these designs together to make our final Bench design.
The children who were chosen were called out of class to paint their book characters and background onto the blank bench.
We are very proud of the final design and want to thank everyone involved for their effort.
Well done all!

During our first school council meeting of 2015, we brought forward the suggestions from the classes. We discussed them and voted on ideas which will help bring change to our school.
Topics we discussed were; a playground cleaning rota, a whole school event or trip at the end of the year, a behaviour plan for bad choices outside and new toys for wet break times. We are going to work on these so keep an eye on our ‘you say, we did’ board to see what happens with these ideas.
And... keep your suggestions coming in!
