About us About us

The Spinney School Council is made up of representatives from each year group in the school. We meet once a week to discuss issues that are important in the school, report back to our classes on what was discussed and on any decisions that we made.

We hold elections every year to decide who is going to be on the council, who will be chair and who will be vice-chair.

This year's topic Sustainability

While we discuss a range of items in our meetings, our main topic this year continues to be Sustainability We have been considering the various ways that we, as a school, can consider the environment in our activities.

We have also focused on Healthy Eating, and are now involved with the Food For Life Partnership. We are looking to grow food in the kitchen garden that can be given to our kitchen staff so that it can be included in our lunches.
