School Council

Norristhorpe School Council is a group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils. Two pupil representatives from each class from Year 2 to Year 6 makes up the school council. We have a Chairperson who leads the meeting, a Secretary who takes the minutes, a time keeper and a treasurer.

The School Council meet fortnightly to discuss the views of their class, help to arrange fundraisers and feedback any issues in school from a pupil perspective. They also lead cohort and whole school assemblies to raise awareness of the charities that we support at school.

Last year the School Council helped to organise charity events for Great Ormond Street Hospital, Children in Need and Comic Relief. 

The Green Team

There are 12 pupil and 3 staff members of   "The Green Team".  Their motto is : REDUCE - REUSE - RECYCLE

May 17 - Our very own eco warriors, The Green Team, led by Mrs Stelling, have worked very hard to encourage us all to recycle and reduce. Due to their hard work we are delighted to say that our school has now qualified for the Bronze Eco Schools Award. Well done!

March 17 - The Norristhorpe Green Team held a fabulous assembly for the whole school to explain to the children and staff what they would like to achieve in this school year.

Currently they are:

  • monitoring the use or perhaps over use of electricity in school!
  • encouraging the recycling of all possible rubbish.
  • investigating the possibility of reducing water waste. They have already managed to persuade our school business manager to install "Auto Stop" taps in all the children's toilets to prevent taps being left running.

 

 

 

Health and Safety Ambassadors

These children represent their class and attend monthly meetings with Mrs Newton, School Business Manager.

The ambassadors regularly tour school, inside and out, looking out for any problems that they feel are a Health & Safety issue and they then report their findings back to Mrs Newton who will arrange to have these issues resolved.

 

 

 

 

 

Play Leaders

The Playleaders are a group of children who help to bring out and put away the play equipment during lunchtime play.

They teach and play games with the other children in the top playground and they help lonely children make friends.

Being a Play Leader helps the children to:

  • gain and build confidence and self esteem
  • develop a genuine sense of responsibility by helping others to improve playtimes
  • grow emotionally when offered responsibility
  • learn moral values, such as keeping to the rules, turn taking and sharing.
  • All children who have completed their jobs receive a certificate and a small token.
