This is our School Council, also known as the Dream Team. The Dream Team were elected by the children of St Matthew's C of E School. Each candidate presented their ideas to their class. Each child then had a vote based on what they heard and who they thought would be most suitable for the role.
The children also elected a Prime Minister and a Deputy Prime Minister who could lead the Dream Team. The children had to present a manifesto to the whole school and a vote was then taken.
We meet, regularly, to discuss issues of importance around the school and organise fundraising events. The Dream Team also recruit playground leaders, who have to write letters of application, do interviews, and who are, regularly, appraised. By doing this, we encourage our children to be involved in the organisation and running of our school.
