The School Council is made up of representatives from each year group from Year 1 to Year 6. Pupils from each year group were nominated and an election was held. During regular meetings, the pupils develop St Augustine’s to make it a better school and bring pupil’s wishes and ideas to the teacher representatives Miss Dunn, Mrs Pettecrew and Miss Viney.
In October 2019, during the week parliament was voting about Brexit we asked our local MP Rebecca Long-Bailey to come and visit school. She thought it was important to come and talked to us about democracy. She was impressed that we had used democracy to vote for the School Council members.
At the end of assembly Glee Club sang ‘Blinded by your grace’ for the whole school and Rebecca. She said how much she enjoyed the singing. Thank you for coming to visit us Rebecca.
