School Council

The Ferrars Academy School Council





On Thursday 20th September children at The Ferrars Academy voted for one boy and one girl in their classes to be their school council representatives. The children had created posters and displayed them around the school to campaign for votes. They were then able to vote for their representatives throughout the day in the DT room where booths were set up for a secret ballot. Their classmates picked the candidates they thought would be able to represent them well, get their voices heard and are great role models for the school. On Monday 24th September we had an assembly to announce the successful candidates from each class.

Mrs Kelly on the spot!

The School Council children asked the children in their class to think of some questions that they would like to ask our new Deputy Head, Mrs Kelly.  We then had a whole school assembly were the children asked her these questions. The children enjoyed finding out things like Mrs Kelly’s favourite colour, what car she drives and what school she had come from.



Please take a look at our leaflet we have made to remind people about road safety. We will be handing out the leaflets to parents when we patrol near the school gates.

During spring term, School Council have successfully been able to patrol the road outside the school. The children worked hard to produce leaflets and posters to help raise awareness of parking considerately and safely. We were lucky enough to have traffic wardens accompany us during one of our patrols to help enforce better, safer parking. The children enjoyed speaking to adults about the signs and what they mean. Well done School Councillors!




School Council have been busy raising awareness of Remembrance Day. They have been going to classes selling poppies, rulers, sharpeners, pencils, reflectors, rubbers and sharpeners to raise money on behalf of the British Legion. We have had the opportunity to speak to the adults from time for tea and we explained what Remembrance Day is and how it is marked. After our presentation we sold the Remembrance Day merchandise and helped to serve sandwiches to them.
