Welcome from the Chairs of School Council

School Council is an elected group of children (1 boy and 1 girl from each class) who get together and discuss things about our school.  We think all the children at Corsham Primary work hard towards their learning goals and are very positive, as well as being lovely.  Every single member of staff is kind, helpful and fair but firm.

We have many celebrations which we all enjoy, for example commendations are given out every fortnight to a pupil who their teacher thinks have done really well with their learning.  We also have merits which are put on a special card; we win awards if we have completed our 3rd, 6th, 9th etc merit cards which is great fun.  We have Learning Oscars - each class is awarded for a topic that they have worked well in.

School Council organises a Talent Show at the end of each and every academic year.  Ten acts can show off their talents to the whole school and it is School Council members who vote for the overall winner.

Our school organises lots of adventurous school trips for each class and we know your children will have a lot of fun.  Not only does the School Council help with fun activities but we help Mrs Parker and Mrs Fry with decisions about the school.  Part of our role is to be ambassadors for our classes so we listen to the views of the children in our classes and then share these views at the School Council meetings.  We also really enjoy interviewing teachers and showing around important guests.  Recently, we helped the PTA to buy new playground equipment for Pound Pill.  We will buy new playground equipment for Broadwood once the new build is completed.  Last year, School Council members came up with some strategies to support children with their feelings e.g. excitement, anger, feeling sad etc.

Our school has a unique and funny mascot named Ivern the Wyvern; he represents our school and is seen all around our classrooms.  We have a school motto which describes and sums up the entire school in just 3 words which is - Caring, Positive and Stimulating.

If you have any ideas about things you would like to do then please see a school councillor.

We hope you like our school - we are very proud of it.
