Churchend Primary Academy

Be the best possible version of yourself

Academy Council

Academy Council

The Academy council was set up as a way to ensure that children at Churchend get to have a say about what happens at the school. Mr Seymour consults them regularly about all sorts of things. They tell him about the things that they think work well, the things that could be improved and any particular issues that concern children in their class.

The Academy Council has 5 committee members, Chairperson, Vice-chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Press Officer. These children will be from Year 6 and they work with Mrs Greggan to plan and organise the meetings. Each class elects 2 reps at the beginning of the school year. The Academy Council meet together to raise issues, respond to Academy requests and organise fundraising and charity events. Each member of the Academy council takes time to talk to their classmates about any item that needs to go on the agenda. Sometimes Mr Seymour will ask the Academy council to go and find out what the children in each class think about an idea he might have.


If you have an idea, a worry or a possible improvement that you think the school should consider, do speak to your class rep. They want to hear your views!



Spring Term Meeting

At the beginning of February, Mr Seymour met the School Council to ask them for funds to buy new playground equipment. He explained that we need some new resources for everyone to use at break and lunchtimes. The School Council agreed to donate some of their money and discussed what equipment they might like.

Children in Need 2021

Our School Council has been busy fundraising again for Children in Need. They met a few weeks before the day to discuss ideas for ways of getting the whole school community involved. The committee then finalised the plans and arranged a fantastic bear hunt! As well as this, the committee led an assembly for the whole school about the charity and how we were celebrating in school. Thanks to donations from our community, we raised over £400 and half of this went to the School Council fund. Good work everyone!

Macmillan Cake Sale

A huge well done to the Academy Council for hosting a cake sale for Macmillan Cancer Support! The Committee members introduced the event in an assembly and prepared an email to be sent home to parents and carers. Reps from Years 4-6 ran the stalls and promoted this great cause. We have now raised over £600 for this amazing cause which is £200 over our target! Thank you to the Academy Council and all the generous members of our Churchend community.
