School Council 2020-21

We are a group of children, nominated by our classmates, who try to make the school a better place for everyone. We are ‘the voice’ of the pupils and it is our responsibility to ensure the children at our school have their say and we make our voices heard in a polite yet effective way. We meet every week to discuss what is happening in school and our new 'Picture News'. If there is anything that our classes want to raise, we get the opportunity to discuss them during our meetings every Friday afternoon.

School Council Promises

In their first school council meeting, the group identified what they thought were important qualities of a school councillor and wrote their own ‘School Council Promises’. Each member of the school council signed the promises and a copy is displayed in each classroom.

Our School Council Promises

British Values Link - Children should develop an appreciation that living under the rule of law protects individual citizens and is essential for their wellbeing and safety

School Council Meetings

Every half term the school council meetings are based on different themes which are closely linked to the school gather and presentation themes, British values links and support the children’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural development.

Picture News 

The school councillors support their classes to learn about current issues in the news. During school council meetings they use a topical news picture and debate relevant, real issues and then lead the discussion with their own class.  

 Wellbeing Ambassadors 2020 – 2021

At Brandwood we take bullying really seriously and as a result of our hard work, dedication and respect for each other we have gained the ‘BIG Award’ once again. This demonstrates that as a school, we have shown excellence in dealing with and preventing bullying wherever possible.

To maintain this approach we have ‘Wellbeing Ambassadors’ for each class. Their role includes ensuring any bullying is dealt with effectively in our classrooms and on the playground and that anti-bullying strategies are promoted effectively.

The ambassadors provide support for anyone that feels bullied by:

  • Listening to children if they feel worried or concerned
  • Ensuring any issues or concerns are reported to the class teacher
  • Making sure that everyone acts as part of a team
  • Ensuring that no child is alone at break times
  • Becoming an active role model to everyone in school.

The Anti Bullying Ambassadors are:

  • 6S: Umer Merchant & Kulsum Adam
  • 6L: Liliana Pusoma & Hamzah Surti
  • 5R: Ayoob Mohamed, Abdullah Haziq & Haider Ali
  • 5M: Rayyan Patel & Umer Farooq
  • 5W: Fatima Yaseen & Yasir Abdulahi
  • 4B: Zara Khaduji & Faizan Ghadiali
  • 4C: Zainab Patel & Huzaifa Ahmed
  • 3H: Yawar Mala & Aysha Patel

  • 2C: Shifa Kantharia & Soban Khan
