School Council

Meet the new School Council, 2021-2022.

The first School Council meeting was held on the 14th October 2021.

The children introduced themselvesto the group. School Council badges were given to the children at the following Key Stage 2 assembly. They all felt very proud!

The School Council at St Monica's; as part of the Strand Partnership Initiative is continuing to focus on the subject; "How can we help to keep our communities safe?"


To that end we invited Mr John Toker, Travel awareness and safety officer for Sefton, to speak to our Year One and Two children in the Mini Hall about Road Safety.


He told the children about the Green Cross Code and how they should follow the code to help them cross the road safely. The Year One children, with the supervision of their teachers, will then practise crossing the road safely on the road outside school.

In addition, The Crossing Patrol lady, Jan Tayler, was also invited to speak to the children. She was delighted to have the opportunity to meet the children and she told us how much she enjoyed her job as everyone was so friendly.


As a follow up to the meeting, Year One have been given the opportunity to enter a competition to design the best road safety banner for our school.

The School Council will then carefully choose the best design to be sent to a graphic design company, who will produce a P.V.C banner to be displayed at the school entrance gate.



On Thursday 27th January 2022, two representatives from the School Council attended the first Strand Partnership meeting of the academic year. The meeting was held at English Martyrs Primary School.

The Strand Partnership is a group of schools who meet to discuss a variety of initiatives which affect the local area. The group haven't met for the last few years due to the global pandemic. However it's now been able to recommence with some safe guarding proceedures put in place.

The project for discussion this year is: "How can our communities keep us safe?"

The meeting was attended by Ward Coucillors, who provided answers and gave us some suggestions on how we can implement this initiative.

A further meeting has been arranged for later on in the Spring Term to present ideas, we have implemented.

We're working hard as School Councillors to present suggestions to the school to help us answer the project's question.

On Monday 20th January, the School Council lead their first whole assembly on British values. The first topic covered was ‘Democracy’. The assembly described what democracy was and how we elect our representatives to lead us in our country. The assembly included ideas on how we can participate in democracy and how we elect school councillors using a voting system.

The School Council have worked on the Strand Partnership project entitled ‘Employability’. They have attended numerous events at Crosby Lakeside which culminated in a celebration event on 20th June 2019. The School Council presented a Powerpoint presentation on the work they have done this year. They presented an assembly in front of the whole school to introduce the topic. Several companies were then invited into school to help the children. The event was organised by Mrs Gibney a parent of St Monica's. we wish to thank her and ‘Arriva Buses’, QVC jewellery, Morgan Sindall a construction company and Agent Marketing a web design company. Year 5 enjoyed learning about how the different companies operate. We were also joined by St Robert Bellamine School. The children had employability passports which the companies kindly contributed. The passports also included leaflets and gifts.
