School Council

New Waltham Academy School Council

Welcome to our school council page.


Our school council is made up of 2 members from each class. We were voted to become school councillors by our classmates.

We meet with the other school councillors once a week to discuss issues. These might be suggestions from our class about things they would like to happen, events we would like to do, our issues in our village.

Autumn Term

The newly elected school council have had a very productive Autumn term. They have worked alongside the PE leader to design and make playground posters to encourage the children to play sensibly with the playground toys and equipment, drawing up playground rules and identifying quiet areas. They  wrote a letter to Mrs Perry with ideas on how the profile of school council can be raised and have subsequently helped at Grandparents Day, showing visitors around the school. Following concerns about road safety outside the school gates, they have produced a banner and leaflet which will be launched as part of Road Safety Week, with the aim of encouraging parents to be more aware of their driving and parking at the start and end of the school day.
