Cliffedale Children's Council



Autumn Term 1 

The Children's Council organised a school wide collection for the Grantham Foodbank to help with their Harvest campaign and addressed the whole school in assembly, giving ideas on what to bring in.  The children sorted and bagged all of the donations received for onwards transmission to the Foodbank.


Autumn Term 2

We decided to raise money for BBC Children in Need and the Children's Council invited all children to come to school dressed in their pyjamas or home clothes in exchange for a donation of £1 to the charity.


Spring Term 3

The Children's Council fed back from the classrooms about what improvements they would like to see in school and more extra curricular clubs were mentioned, and we now are offering cricket, football, basketball, chess, computing, sewing, art and Spanish to mention a few!


Spring Term 4

The Children's Council have organised a school wide bake sale which will take place over the course of Term 4, 5 and 6.  Each year group will hold their own bake sale and the Children's Council will decide how the money raise will be spent within school. 


Year 5&6 held their bake sale and raised around £160!


The children also invited the school to have a non uniform day to raise money for Red Nose Day on 18th March.


Summer Term 5

Year 3&4 will be holding their bake sale on 10th May.


Summer Term 6

Year 1&2 and the EYFS children had their bake sale on 15th June and raised £203.  Well done everyone! 


We are organising a Bag2School Collection on Tuesday 28th June - please send in your unwanted clothing etc to help raise money for the School Fund.






Children’s Council for 2021-22


Congratulations to the children who have been elected by their class peers and are now members of our new Children’s Council for this school year.


Two children are elected from each class for Y1-6 and two extra Y6 children are elected to support the Foxes and Squirrels. (This year as circumstances have meant that the children elected last year did not have very long in their post, some of our councillors have remained in place in their new Year group).

This year our Children's Council representatives are:


Penelope (Yr 1)

Jennifer (Yr 1)

Iris (Yr 2)
