St Mary's Catholic Primary School

"Nurturing Our God-Given Talents"

School Council

The School Council meet Miss Donnelly every fortnight to pass on the views from their classes, to look at what charities they would like to support for different occasions, and to think about enhancing the school generally. Miss Donnelly ensures all the staff hear these views and share the minutes from the meeting with Miss Phipps and Mr Sims (Headteachers) to give them an opportunity to reply.

On occasions, Governors or staff members are invited to these meetings. The Chair of Governors have previously been invited to meetings as the children wanted the Governors to hear about their views for a new playground surface. Mrs Kingdon (Premises Manager) was also invited to a meeting as the children wanted to talk about how things could be improved around the school.

Our School Council helps the children to engage and lead change in their world.


The School Council would like to thank everyone kindly for all your charity support so far this year. The following is a list of what was raised and who the money is going to:

  • Providence Row £371.65

  • Greenwich and Bexley Hospice £228.09

The Y5 Faith Friends raised a staggering £698.72 on behalf of the Poppy Appeal. Very well done to them, standing out in all weathers for such a good cause.
