Hobbs Hill Wood has a School Council made up of 16 members – two representatives per class in Year Three, one representative from each class in Year Four and Year Five and eight representatives from Year Six. Pupils can offer themselves for nomination at the start of the academic year and the other pupils in the class vote to elect their representative.
School Council is the voice of the children and the children’s opportunity to contribute to whole school improvement. The School Council representative attends regular meetings to discuss comments and ideas put forward by their peers. They also hold regular class council meetings to share what has been happening in school council and to put forward suggestions.

This term, we asked classes to think of questions for the school Governors. Each class was asked to write a list of questions that we could ask the Governors to find out more about what they do. We then asked a Governor to come into school and asked them those questions. Questions included: 'How important are Governors?', 'What do Governors do?', 'Who is the Chair of Governors?', 'How many Governors are in the Governing Body?' and 'Do they inspect the teachers?'
We have been planning different activities for Red Nose Day and have asked classes to suggest things we can do to raise money.
We helped to finalise the gym equipment for the junior playgrounds and the big net in the Year 3/4 playground. We are now in the process of writing a list of rules for using the equipment.
