Milestone School Council is made up of helpful, enthusiastic and thoughtful pupils from middle and senior departments. Members of Council listen to ideas from classes and make things happen to improve the school.
What is the School Council?
The purpose of the School Council is to represent the views and opinions of pupils throughout the school. Pupils are elected in September and meet six times a year.
Issues that might be discussed in the school meetings include:
- School equipment
- Lunchtime Clubs
- Playtime issues

How does the School Council work?
The School Council meets once a term during the year. The meetings are led with an agenda and minutes are recorded by the member of staff. members of council are given the opportunity to discuss any issues they have brought to the meeting.
What have the School Council done recently?
The School Council have been finding ways of keeping the school community together and excited during the difficult time of Covid-19 and all the restrictions we have had to implement in school. In December 2020, the Council helped to organise whole school quizzes to try and keep our community spirit high! The council also helped to facilitate virtual Christmas events.
The School Council are currently working with People Too to help give their views and perspectives on the EHCP process within Gloucestershire. This is ongoing work and we are pleased to support Rosie and Mark with this.
One aim as we come out of Covid-19 restrictions is to help increase the outdoor provision for all pupils across the school. We are working with Sam P who is our outdoor lead to do this.
We are also continuing to work on our Eco Schools Award and make sure our school is Eco Friendly.
