We are the School Council of Black Lane.  Each year we hold an election to vote for members of the School Council.  The aim of the School Council is to allow the children to have the opportunity to express their views about school, where they will be listened to and action taken where appropriate.

We have a suggestion box in school, so that all children can make suggestions about school life.  These ideas are always discussed in our meetings and a decision is made by voting. Parents are also welcome to make a suggestion, which can be either passed on to Mrs Fox, Mrs Nelson or through the children who can place your suggestion into the box.

We create an action plan each year to make sure there are clear targets and children’s ideas are listened to.  These are displayed on our School Council board in school. School Council action plan 2022-2023

Every year – We visit the Mayor’s Parlour with the Eco Council to meet the Mayor of Wrexham.   We use the public bus and practice asking and paying for a return ticket to Wrexham. We explore the council building and sit in the chamber room to learn about how council meetings are run.

We continually work with the PTA to raise money to improve our school.  Over the years, we have managed to raise huge amounts of money through fundraising events and accessing local grants!  Some projects that the school council have been part of are: installing an outdoor gym, goal posts on the bottom yard, an outdoor classroom and an outdoor canopy in foundation phase.  The children now have lots of areas to keep active and develop physical skills in the outdoors whilst enjoying the beautiful views.  Now for our next project!

We would like to thank you all for supporting our fundraising events.  Please continue to support our fundraising events – all money raised will continue go towards funding the outdoor area for the children.
