Welcome to the Cookham Dean School Council
Our School Council is a student body that works to make improvements to different areas of the school and raise money for the school and a variety of different charities.
Our School Councillors are democratically elected at the start of each academic year and then work on the School Council for all of that year.
Any child can put themselves forward to be on the School Council, all they need to do is think about what their role would be on the School Council and then prepare a speech to be delivered to their class.
On the day of voting the speeches will be delivered and then the classes vote on who they would like to represent their class.
During the first School Council meeting the children devise a School Council Charter stating all of the responsibilities they will undertake to fulfil their roles effectively.
The School Council then meets every 2 weeks to discuss issues within the school and to work on future projects.
The School Councillors meet with their classes between meetings to discuss ideas, projects and issues and they then feedback to the rest of the School Council members during our meetings.
Each term the School Council will complete an action plan of things they aim to work on and achieve by the end of that term.
The Head Boy and Head Girl are the year 6 School Councillors and they meet with Mrs Reekie regularly to update her on the plans, projects and issues.

Anti-Bullying Week 2020
The school worked hard during anti-bullying week to spread the message that 'Change Starts with Use!'.
The school council gave an anti bullying assembly to the whole school and created their own anti-bullying poems.
During the week all the classes worked on different activities based on ending bullying. Some classes took part in debates while other classes worked on creating posters and charters to stop bullying.
The school council created a display of the work in the school.
Below you will find the anti-bullying assembly powerpoint and the school council anti-bullying poems.
