Our School Council gives our children a voice in the development of Westwood Infant and Nursery School and within the local community. Children are elected annually and the council has two representatives from Reception, Year One and Year Two. School Council meetings are held regularly, usually twice each half term with Miss Woodcock and Mrs Armstrong.

Within our meeting today our school council members provided feedback on our Library Lodge and our book lending system we have implemented. The children commented that they "like taking the books home" and that they think the Library Lodge is "marvellous."
The children then discussed ideas for Sports Day this year. Due to parents and families being unable to gather the children made suggestions of "filming for a dvd" and also holding a sponsored event to raise money for charity.
Our after school clubs this year have been a success. The council members were asked for other suggestions for future clubs. Lots of suggestions were made for a Cookery Club, Reading Club, ICT Club and a Maths Club.
Our final point on our agenda was discussing any other business. Esme discussed the issue of sharing bikes at playtime. After much discussion it was agreed that Miss Woodcock would create a time table so that each class would have set days to have turns on the bikes and scooters.

Our School Council meeting was a little different this term due to lockdown.
