At Heathland School we have a very active Pupil Council and work closely with the Pupil Council at Whitefriars School. There are 2 representatives from every class from Year 1-6. We collect the views of the pupils in our classes and we share what pupils have said when we have our Pupil Council meetings at least every half term. We also have tasks that we need to carry out before returning to our next Pupil Council meeting. We make sure that our school is a place that everyone does their best and wants to come to every day. Children talk about the things that are important to them at school and think about what they would like to change.
As a Pupil Council, we also help to raise lots of money for international, national and local Charities. These have included Comic Relief, UNICEF, Harrow MENCAP, St Luke’s Hospice and Harrow Foodbank.
This year we will be continuing to support the charity Diabetes UK. We began our support for this charity at the beginning of last year, but due to school closures did not get to fundraise as much as we would have hoped. The Pupil Council will be talking about ways to raise money for the charity and we look forward to sharing and carrying out our fundraising ideas.
Being a Pupil Councillor is a very popular role here at Heathland and we really enjoy being part of it.
Annually we go on a Health and Safety walk around the school with the Site Manager and we feedback what we find out to the Stakeholder Council
