"'Let Your Light Shine' Matthew 5:16"

Academy Council

At St Mark's we have an academy council made up of 10 children from Year 5 and Year 6. This group of children work closely with the

Headteacher to provide 'children’s' points of view in relation to many aspects of teaching and learning. They are an insightful group of children who are continually looking at ways to improve further our school provision. They accompany the Headteacher and Governors on learning walks within our school and their feedback is given to the teaching staff to improve provision. In addition to their role within our school community they also have a key role in liaising with other schools within and outside of the Trust. When they visit other schools, they bring back into our school positive changes to improve either the curriculum, environment or aspects of worship.
