School Council

School Council Visit to Westminster Houses of Parliament: On 25th March the School Council had an amazing trip to London to visit the Houses of Parliament. As part of their tour, they visited different areas of the building. The Council looked at both the House of Commons and House of Lords. They even walked in the footsteps of the Monarch by visiting the King's robing room and also had the privilege of seeing Westminster Hall where the Queen lay in state. Alongside this, the children had an amazing workshop where they practiced how laws are voted for in the House of Commons. The pupils also had a visit from their local MP, John Penrose, who gave them a rundown of his job and very kindly answered many of their questions. The behaviour of the children was exemplary and they really did the school proud.




St George's Nursing Home Visit on 8th June: 

St Martin's School Council visited St George's Nursing Home where councillors spent time with the local residents. Alongside the residents, Councillors completed a range of Arts and Craft activities as well as decorating (and eating) biscuits. The staff at the nursing home commented on how well behaved, polite and caring the children were and that they are a credit to St Martin's. Well done school council, fantastic job!


School Council Parliament Visit - 27th March 2023: 

The School Council had a fantastic trip to the Houses of Parliament. We enjoyed a tour of the government building by looking at The King's robing room, the House of Commons, House of Lords and St Stephen's chapel.

After our tour, we had a workshop on debating and law and then had a question and answer session with the local MP John Penrose. Our tour guide and workshop teachers commented on the positive behaviour of the children and how they were a credit to the school.

After our visit, we took a short walk to St James's Park, where we had lunch in the lovely London sunshine. A massive thank you to Mr Phillips, who took us there and back driving the school minibus and also to Miss Chedzoy who accompanied us throughout the day.


St Georges Nursing Home - Christmas Visit on Thursday 8th December: 
The School Council children visited St Georges Nursing Home and took part in some Christmas arts and crafts activities with the local residents. 


The Young Carers Charity hosted an assembly at St Martin’s recently.  To support the charity our School Council organised a ‘Coin Challenge’.  The children were all invited to bring in spare coins and they placed them to spell out the words ‘Thank You’ in the hall on 13th February. 

Thank you to everyone for their support with our challenge and to the School Council for organising this event.  We‘ll let you know how much we raised shortly.


School Council Visit to Westminster Parliament: At the end of Term 3, the School Council travelled to London to visit the Palace of Westminster where they had a tour of the House of Commons and House of Lords. They learnt all about how parliament is structured and being part of a democratic society. They were most impressed with the number of police officers they saw and managed to get a photo with PC Robson.

They represented St Martin's so well and look forward to sharing their learning with the school during collective worship after Half Term. Thank you to Mrs Clements, Mrs Thomas and student Miss Edmunds who took the children on their London visit, also to Mr Phillips who drove the children and staff to and from London in our school minibus.


School Council Foodbank Visit: 


Our School Council members spent a morning helping out at Weston Foodbank during December. They packed Christmas parcels and sorted donations and their help was really appreciated. 

Well Done School Council!


Fairtrade Conference at Wells Cathedral: The School Council have learnt more about Fairtrade at the conference they attended during Term 4. They learnt about how trade can be fair and also unfair in addition to finding out which countries produce different fruits and vegetables. They will be presenting their learning in Key Stage 2 Assembly in Term 5. Thank you School Council for representing our school so well! 



Children In Need - St Martin's School Council

This year the School Council did the 'Best Assembly' ever to raise money for Children In Need.  We included many fun things like dances, trumpets and the choir sang their song.  Everyone enjoyed watching the entertainment.  Every pupil brought £1 to give to Children In Need.  Overall we raised £575.58.  Each class joined in with activities throughout the day.  Thank you for all the children who helped raise money.
