Akiva School

School Council

The School Council is led by Lucy Glicksman. Two children from each class (spanning year 2 to year 6) are elected to the Council at the beginning of each academic year and the Council meets fortnightly to plan and organise activities. The Council appoints a Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, Vice Treasurer and Secretary. 

The aims of the School Council are to work together to try and make our school a better place for the children and the staff. Members of the School Council bring ideas from their classmates to the meetings about how they want the school to be improved.

We:

  • Share our ideas and support each other
  • Find out what children think by asking questions
  • Work as a school community
  • Listen to each other

Some of our initiatives over the past year have included:

  • Making changes to the school lunches, introducing a new menu (including the popular sandwiches and soup)
  • Organising the "Own Clothes" day for the charity Shelterbox, which raised over £900
  • Assisting with the "A Factor", creating the show presentation and presenting the acts to the school
  • Working with the Summer Fair committee
  • Building up a database of the opinions of our class mates
