The School Council

Sarisbury Junior School has a proactive and effective School Council who are responsible for a number of events and initiatives to make our school a better place to learn. Children are elected by their classmates and work hard to extend the school’s work into the wider community. The School Council are split into three sub teams who lead a variety of different projects throughout the school.

Learning Council
2014/15 members:
Poppy Deabil, Katie Sloane, Megan Bleek, Holly Lewis, Emily Colville, Lucy Whittington, Anna Scrace, Josh Hawes.

The Learning council was a part of designing our ‘Sarisbury Learner’ statement that all children strive to do in order to excel in all aspects of the curriculum. They are involved in various projects that help to enhance how they learn and how others learn.

Projects they have been involved in and are coming up include:

  • Creating the ‘Sarisbury Learner’
  • Evaluating the ‘Sarisbury Learner’
  • Links with the Infant school to aid their transition

Healthy Schools

The health and well-being of pupils is paramount at Sarisbury, we aim to give pupils opportunities to take part in activities that support and encourage this. The last healthy school’s award was awarded to us in 2012 and we are currently applying to retain this status.

Keep fit Friday club sees the pupils take part in a before school aerobic style work out in order to ‘kick start’ their day and get some exercise.

WoW is a campaign across the school in which children are encouraged to walk to school at least once a week.
