St. Bartholomew’s school council is made up of twelve children (two children from each class). The school councillors are voted for by their peers. Each class has a school council book where they write anything they would like discussed and where they can see minutes of each of our meetings and any follow up discussions they need to have.  The school council meet fortnightly and so far we have collectively created new school rules for lunchtimes, playtimes and behaviour in and around the school, they have helped to design the school play fort and have attended events such as the Remembrance event in Crewkerne on Armistice Day.  In addition, the school council have carried out a bird watch. The school council are also part of the school’s E-Safety Super Heroes Committee that meet once a term to discuss e-safety issues. The school council are also regularly involved in staff interviews.
