The school council meet once per fortnight, on a Tuesday lunchtime, with Miss Love and Miss Walsh.
At The Glebe Primary School we have our very own School Council made up from one child in each class, Years 1 to 6, as well as our Head Boy and Girl. School councillors are chosen through a class ballot. Children meet at lunchtime where they all have the opportunity to provide suggestions for changes and improvements that could be made in school and the surrounding area.
There are idea boxes in each class for children to write to their councillors.
After our weekly meetings, the councillors are given time to report anything we have discussed to their class.

SCHOOL COUNCIL NEWS
This term the school council entered a competition to help make Cleveland a safer place. We created our own multimedia message to raise awareness about the effects of criminal damage to the local community. The children wrote their own script, acted in a short film and even edited it to make the final version.
We are very proud to announce that we came first in the Primary category. We attended an awards evening at the Police Headquarters, and received our prize off Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland, Barry Coppinger.
Watch the winning film below!
SCHOOL COUNCIL PROJECTS
The School Council has been responsible for planning the improvement of the playtimes in both KS1 and KS2 and have chosen a range of products that have enhanced their enjoyment at playtimes and lunchtimes.
As a result of the choices made by the school council, we now have:
A range of indoor educational games
Wooden playground equipment and adventure trails
Picnic tables so that children can eat their lunch outdoors, weather permitting!
Benches for children to sit together
Artwork to brighten up the environment
Metal sculptures of work created by the children
More reading books for every classrooms’ reading corner
The school council has lots of ideas of ways to improve the school environment and school life. If you have any fund raising suggestions please contact the school office or come along to a ‘Friends of the Glebe’ meeting, every first Tuesday of each month.
