Our School Council representatives are elected by the pupils at Heathlands annually and consist of one pupil from each class starting in Year 1. These pupils are the voices for all children at Heathlands and will meet regularly with the designated teacher to discuss and action ideas that will benefit our School Community.
School Council visits the Parish Council
Recently the pupils of our school council, accompanied by Mrs Hopkins, were invited to join the Parish Council’s meeting to share the pupils thoughts on the Parish Plan. The students specifically shared their views regarding the amenities currently available in West Bergholt and what they would like in the future. The children spoke eloquently in front of over one hundred residents. Well done to all involved and Mrs Hopkins for organising it all.
In partnership with the Parish Council, the entire school has also been involved in designing new road signs for the roads around our school promoting ‘20’s Plenty’. Aaron Monks won the competition and will have his design made into a sign along New church Road! This is one part of our ongoing commitment to ensure our pupils are safe at all times. We also arranged for a police officer to patrol the zig zag lines at home time earlier this month as well.
