School Council Members 2020-21

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to Leechpool School Council page which tells you about us and the work we do.

We help to improve our school by:

  • Deciding which charities we will support and raise money for.
  • Write our own School Evaluation Form and Development Plan.
  • Ensure that there is a strong pupil voice.

School Council members should be prepared to attend meetings, on Thursdays at 12.30 p.m. We listen to everyone’s ideas and we respect each other’s views.

As School Council one of our responsibilities is to plan different events.  During the year we have planned and carried out the following:

  • Organised and collected food donations for the Horsham Food Bank as part of our Harvest Celebrations.
  • Run stalls at the Christmas, May Fayre and Music Gala.
  • Sold poppies on behalf of the British Legion.

We hope that we can really make a difference by supporting the following charities this year.

  • British Legion
