School Council

At Hardwick, we have a Key Stage 1 Council, led by Mrs Wilde, and a Key Stage 2 Council, led by Mrs Tatla. We hold regular meetings in which the children have the opportunity to discuss issues that directly affect them about the running of the school. The school council discuss issues such as school meals and PE activities. The school council gathered the views of the children at Hardwick and were influential in creating the school meals committee. This is now an important voice in deciding what should appear on the menus as well as tasting food that the kitchen creates! During our discussions about PE in school, the children expressed an interest in having more extra-curricular opportunities in school, and we have been able to accommodate this by starting a multi-sports club for both boys and girls. They have also had the opportunity to help shape the new PE curriculum by giving ideas about the types of sports and activities they would like to be taught.
