Welcome to Little Gonerby School Council Page
Our most special and important job is:
'Listening to the children
of Little Gonerby'
We are the voice of ALL the children at LG
Our School Council is currently made up of 10 children from the Year 1 and Year 2 classes and Mrs Jones (Reception /Diamond Class Teacher).
We are looking forward to welcoming our 4 Reception members in the spring term.
Our LGSC members are
We have our own Twitter account! Please follow us for news, updates and meeting dates...
We look forward to hearing any ideas you may have through our Twitter account too!
The school council team have two meetings each term, to discuss issues raised by other children, to organise events, feedback on 'listening lunchtimes' and to discuss other ideas to involve children in our school - we are their 'voice'.
Our next meeting is on:
Tuesday 13th June 2017,
12.30pm in the Community Room

What the LGSC aim to achieve in each meeting
Our first LGSC meeting of the year - exciting times lie ahead!
LGSC Listening Lunchtimes
This is a new idea that the LGSC are trying this year.
Our Listening Lunchtime Ambassadors are:
Isobel Allsop (Y2) & Max Smyth (Y2)
Mollie Grey (Y2) is our Bus Stop Buddy -
look for Mollie on a Monday and she will bring you to our Listening Lunchtime.
LGSC Listening Lunchtime is an opportunity to enable all children to talk to and ask questions to our school council. The LGSC take turns to attend these sessions.
These times are held by the LGSC, and are all about communication between the children in our school. A time where any child can ask any question or share any thoughts with a School Councillor, who can then take that back to a LGSC meeting where it can be addressed.
Children can attend any week, for any reason. This is a time for the children to share their 'voice' with their School Council, who can then in turn share with the school staff.
The LGSC welcome all LG children, and listen to all their thoughts and ideas, each Monday (except the 1st Monday of each new term) lunchtime 12.30-12.45 in Diamond Class.
Our 2016-2017 LGSC Playtime Buddies are:
Finley Schwartz (Y1)
Alfie King (Y1)
Jasper Bollons (Y1)
Tom Rattigan (Y1)
Mia Filkins (Y2)
Gabriella Gniewick (Y1)
Alisha Atkin (Y2)
They are currently completing our Playtime Buddy Training. Mrs Rigby will be leading the Playtime Buddies team.
These LGSC members will be trained over a 5 week period, completing a training programme on how to be a 'Playtime Buddy'.
They will then introduce themselves in whole school worship and explain a little about their role.
What is a Playtime Buddy?
Someone to play with
Someone to help you solve a problem
Someone to help you solve a disagreement
Someone to set a wonderful example of how to behave and play at playtimes
Someone to rely upon
Someone who wears a red baseball cap
Someone who can be trusted and will be fair
Please look out for our Playtime Buddies - they are here to help all the children of Little Gonerby!
Some great discussions in our first Playtime Buddy training session...
This year we have started to send out a newsletter at the end of every autumn, spring and summer term.
The newsletter explains our successes for the previous term, and our goals for the next.
It will help keep everyone up to date with the LGSC, and help us to keep being the 'voice' of all the children at Little Gonerby.

This is something we have done in the past.
LGSC members lead whole class carpet times where the school values were discussed.
The results of all these meetings culminated in posters which have displayed in school since.
The LGSC are proud of their involvement in helping the children of LG learn each value and what they all stand for.
This can be found to the right of the small hall doors. Children can fill in the form and post it in the red box. The box is checked at every meeting. If children would like to share their ideas with family at home, they can take their slip home to complete and return it to school.
This is a different way of sharing ideas with the LGSC. Don't forget you can call into a 'Listening Lunchtime' if you would prefer to talk to someone instead!
