Governor Meeting 15th March 2016

Governors’ Meeting

Megan, Bobby and Brandon represented the School Council at the Governors’ meeting.

They spoke about the changes made to School Council since September and what they had been doing to improve it:


This year we decided to make changes to the School Council.

The students wanted to have a bigger role.

What did we do?

  • The members of School Council were given a Lower School class to be responsible for, so we have to drop off the minutes after the meetings.
  • We all volunteered for jobs within School Council – Chair of meeting, Minute taker, Blog writers, Photographers.
  • We want to help in decision making in the school especially if changes are going to affect us.


We voted for a School Council badge which we could wear all the time so people know they can come to us with ideas. This is it.

We had a competition to design a Pear Tree School Council logo.

This is the winning one.


We organise the fundraising in school.

This year we have raised money for the new 6th form building and Children in Need.

We are arranging to do the Big Cookathon in April. You can join in too and make a cottage pie.


We have helped Nicola work on the Lancashire Healthy Schools Standards.

We want to have gained Flagship Status by July. We will be only the third school in Lancashire to have got this.

So far we have 8 of the 12 standards.

We took part in special sessions on Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco Education to help us understand the dangers. This helped us and we gained a quality standard too.

We are also doing sessions with the NSPCC and The Children’s Society to teach us about personal safety and this will get us a quality standard too.


Thank you for listening to us.

We hope you will support our School Council.
