The Year 1 and Year 6 pupil councillors conducted a traffic survey between 8:30 and 8:50 on a Wednesday morning to observe safety around the front and back of school. The Junior Leadership Team also attended to support the councillors. The councillors  were disappointed to find a lot of inappropriate parking which was unsafe for children and for the residents. They spoke to parents who walk to school who shared their difficulties walking their children to school between the parked cars.

'A group of Pupil Councillors met with the Premises and Health & Safety Committee of the Governing Body where they reported on the traffic surveys they had conducted. They shared their ideas of how to improve the safety and to reduce the amount of traffic around the school, especially at drop-off and pick-up times. The Governors also shared their opinions on how to make it safer around the school.
As it was their last Pupil Council meeting, Mrs Guy thanked the councilors for their hard work throughout the year with a cookie.
The Pupil Council and Mrs Guy are proud of all they have achieved this year!'

Week Ending 31st March

'This week during our meeting, we looked at the photographs of our trip to the Houses of Parliament.The oldest part of the building is Westminster Hall and it is over 900 years old. However, the Education Centre was only built in 2015. We had a very good day. 
We then talked about our next traffic survey which years 5 and 2 did. 
At the back of the school, we saw lots of bad parking that made it dangerous for people to cross the road. Some cars were parked on the pavements and some were on the corner of the road so other cars found it difficult to turn around and to see safely down the road. 
At the front of the school, we didn’t find any parents who drove too fast, parked on double yellow lines or blocked any driveways. It was much better because there was no bad parking and hopefully it will stay like this. 
We also received a letter and some photos from the Hockley and Hawkwell Over 55’s Club thanking us for our donation towards their new minibus. Hopefully, Mrs. Guy will take us to see it soon.'
