Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
Our School Council allows children’s voices to be heard and to represent the views of all the children at Southey Green. Our School Council representatives feel part of our school community and the children value their role as School Council reps - they wear their badges with pride. New representatives will be elected each year and we meet every two weeks to discuss issues and ideas for improvements. Recent topics of discussion have included – Road Safety competitions; Playground buddies and Red Nose Day. The children even designed our celebration postcards!

On Thursday 17th November 2016, the school council went on a trip to London to see Parliament. The building itself was impressive to say the least! We managed to meet our local Sheffield MP for a Q&A session and we also went into the silent viewing gallery in the House of Commons to watch the MP’s discussing issues for their local constituencies. The children even got to stand in the spot where Guy Faulkes was sentenced and famous leaders have given speeches. The children learnt so much and it was a fantastic opportunity that couldn’t be missed. The majority of children in the group had not been to London before so they were amazed by the huge buildings (especially Big Ben and the London Eye). All the children were absolutely brilliant. They didn’t complain about the very long journey and early start (5am!) and their behaviour was impeccable. The staff felt extremely proud of the children, they really are a credit to our school.
