Pupil Voice is very important to us at Bromet. Mrs Wambeek leads our School Council who meet regularly to hear the children’s ideas and suggestions. Two children from each class are selected to be members of the School Council. They are also involved with planning and carrying out assemblies and for feeding back to the children. Parent and carer plus children’s ideas and views can be shared anytime with the staff or through our questionnaires.

The first meeting of the term has been with the KS1 members. Last term,School Council Reps had mentioned about helping to keep our school tidy. As the weather was kind we went out with the litter pickers, collecting some of the rubbish that had got caught around the edge of the field and playground.
The children were all keen to help,and found lots of wrappers amongst the leaves!
Thank you for helping to make our school look better!
Bromet School Council
This spring term, Bromet School Council have been very active helping our school to become a better place for all pupils. We have been very enthusiastic in carrying out our duties. Some of the activities we have done are as follows:
Meeting School Improvement Partner
We met with the School improvement partner. She asked us lots of questions about Bromet and told us about her role. We then had the chance to ask her some questions.
Judging Flood displays
The KS2 School Council Representatives went around the school judging all of the class Flood displays based the school book, Flood. We all gave a rating from 1-5 and the display with the highest points won. Also Thanniska and Emmanuel (Eagle Class reps) took the KS1 school council around to judge as well. It was later then announced Kestrel Class had the best score.
For the past 2 weeks school council have been selling and collecting raffle tickets. The winner of the Easter raffle was drawn out in assembly. School Council also had the privilege to judge the KS1 Easter bonnets and the KS2 Easter art competition with Father david from St Matthew’s.
Emmanuel and Thanisshka asked KS1 School Council reps a few questions and here are their responses:
What have you enjoyed so far about being in the school council?
Devon and Oscar - Swifts : “I liked judging the Flood displays.”
Masooma and Will - Sparrows : “I liked the Flood displays too!”
Kika and Otis - Kingfishers : “I liked doing the Easter posters and also the Flood displays.”
What ideas do you have for school council in the summer?
Devon and Oscar : “We could have milkshakes instead of hot chocolate in the summer!”
Masooma and Will: “We could go litter picking! We could go on School Council trips”
Kika and Otis: “We could do a school council sponsored water fight!”
Let’s see about that idea!
By: Thanisshka and Emmanuel.
The School Council have been busy this week judging the class displays linked to book week-They took time to study the whole effect and variety of work, to give each class a score.
Next they will begin planning their Easter Assembly with Mrs B , in preparation for 4th April.
This week we have been learning about E-safety and talking about well- being in class and at our School Council Meeting. The children decorated their network hands and designed E- safety posters.
Its great to be back for the Spring. The new lunchtime rotas are in place and the recycling bin is in KS2 playground.We are also collecting empty crisp packets in the dining hall to send away for recycling. Our projects for this term include planning e- safety advice to share with our classes and creating positive mental health leaflets.
After half term we will be taking part in Mrs B's Easter Assembly.
Please continue to put forward suggestions to your school council class representative your voice is important to us!
School Council Representatives will be bringing poppies to the classrooms after lunch break this week. Thank you for helping our school community support The Poppy Appeal.
On Thursday the school council met to discuss suggestions from class boxes. They shared the ideas and have made a list of suggestions to take back to the classroom to find out more information and monitor reaction. The most popular will be discussed with Mrs Pace. Well done!
KS1 Meeting Today
Our KS1 school council members spent time today working as a team to help Will from Sparrow decorate their class suggestion box. We then went on a walk outside and the children were able to show me all the safe places they have to play at break and lunchtimes. As part of their role, looking after the school community, they helped to clear some of the paper that had blown into the bushes and tidy the pathway. Great job!
We are all looking forward to The Harvest Assembly on Friday.
