Stoke Park Junior School

Achieving Excellence

School Council

The School Council at Stoke Park is actively engaged in improving the quality of life for students who attend our school. Lower down the page we have listed their aims. Below you can see some photographs of the School Council during some of their sessions this year. They can be seen helping to design a new school mural, creating imaginative outlines for a memorial garden for Stoke Park's long serving teacher, Mr. Chamberlain, who sadly passed away recently and they can also be seen discussing rules near the new section of the Timber Trail

Recently they have been looking at British Values and the characteristics required to be a good pupil. Below you can see some of the colourful posters they created which are now on display around the school.
