School Council

This is the place to find out all about the important work which the Coppermill School Council will be doing this year.


This term the School Council chose the playground as their main project. They asked their classmates for their ideas about what would make breaktimes and lunchtimes better and met with Miss Jones, Miss Enver and Miss Sadia to discuss these and helped to order new equipment for the playgrounds.

They also ran a whole school competition for designs for the two new ‘friendship benches’ which have been ordered (one for each playground). The school council judged the winning entries from each class and eventually chose two winning designs which will be painted onto our benches by Mr Yoong.



Finally, the children chose Greenpeace as their charity for this term. They held a cake stall at the Spring Term Bake Sale and also organised and ran ‘Soak the Teacher’ at the Spring Fair. Children from across the school loved having the opportunity to drench some brave staff members and the event was a huge success. The final total raised from these two fundraisers is an amazing £233.14. Amazing work School Councillors!




The School Council worked incredibly hard in the Autumn Term. They have carried out surveys to improve our school clubs offering and will be meeting Miss Bektaṣoğluto discuss their ideas. They also delivered the Christmas post to classes around the school and helped our office staff and teachers with various jobs at lunchtime. As well as all of this, they worked incredibly hard to prepare and run the School Council stall at the Christmas Fair with donations for the fantastic Christmas decorations they made going to the Whipp’s Cross Christmas Appeal. Along with the collections from our Christmas performances, they raised an amazing £435 to supporting patients and staff at the hospital over Christmas. Well done School Councillors, you are doing us proud!
