Posting letter to Councillor Philip M Davis and Katherine Iroh , During the month of March 2022 the school councillors have been collecting support from our local community to petition for “Reducing the speed limit to 20mph on Trittiford Road. We have collected 240 signatures. We would like you on our behalf to take this to the local council house with our reasons stated below so that you can better understand our call to action.

Meeting 5:

Meeting 4: 27/1/22 We came together to discuss when we can go out to collect names for our petition to reduce the speed limit to 20mph. Watch this space when we will be out and about getting support for all of our OLOL family.

Meeting 3: 23/11/22 We discussed which Road safety signs we preferred and fed back to Mrs David our choices...

Meeting 2: Pupils brought in their Road safety posters and questionnaires to help support the petition to reduce the speed limit to 20mph. We also received a letter from Mrs David asking for our opinion on our favourite safety signs to help improve how cars are parked outside of school.

Autumn 1 Meeting: We have had our first meeting to discuss what our role is within school and in our classes. We then discussed things that we would like to try and achieve this year. One of our discussions was about road safety and the councillors have been given their first task. Task 1: To create a 'Road Safety' poster and to design a questionnaire or petition that we could use to discuss opinions from children and parents.

School Councillors for 2021-22: We are proud to present our nominated School Councillors for this academic year. As school councillors we give all pupils in our school a voice through us that are on school council team.

Meet our School Councillors...

Monday 9th November 2020: Two of our School Councillors handed Mrs David a letter today to ask for some information to go onto the Newsletter. We will be excitedly awaiting her response...

Monday 16th November 2020: We received a letter today from Mrs David, we were extremely happy as our request to ask for donations for our wet play time games has been accepted. So this will be put in our weekly newsletter! Great job School Councillors!

Our School Councillors have completed their target to provide wet play time equipment to all classes and it was a resounding success! smiley

They worked hard to organise the different games and then shared them out equally between each year group. 

I am so proud of them as they have worked so hard to try and get this ready for OLOL pupils but due to the pandemic we had to pause our plans.

It was great to see all of the children's faces when they saw what their school Councillors had brought for them. 

Target completed: Wet play time equipment for the whole school.
