Meeting Monday 15th October  

We discussed the Pupil /class survey?  

The children suggested we asked their peers:- What the children think of the school? What could be improved?  What have they enjoyed this half term? Why?.  The pupil council are now taking these surveys to their class for them to complete this week.

EYFS will do their survey in the spring term when they are more settled and have a school council representative.

We got together and discussed the outcome of the pupil surveys.  Here are some of the outcomes

Things we do well at Kents Hill Infant Academy:-

Children's comments

  2. Topics are fun.
  3. We all work as a team.
  4. School dinners are tasty and have a good choice.
  5. We help each other when we are stuck.
  6. We are good at tidying up.


Things we need to change:-


  1. A pet in school for all children to access.
  2. More playground toys are needed
  3. Longer time to play at lunchtime
  4. Stop hurting others and show respect.
  5. Walking around the school instead of running.  
  6. Opportunities to go on the gym trail  more often.
  7. Add new features to the gym trail
  8.  noise levels around the school and in the classroom.

Meeting 7th November

The pupil council discussed how they would organise a whole school reward system similar to the Juniors.   

They want to have 4 school teams :- red, green, blue, gold/yellow .  (Possibly in line with the Juniors teams) 

They said there should be 6/7 children in each group in every class and families should be in the same team. 

Each child can earn team points for following school rules and for good work and behaviour. 

They also said that team points should be counted up on Friday and presented in Mondays assembly.

Suggested ideas for rewards:- Every term the team with the most team points gets to have a certificate.  At the end of the year the Team with the most team points gets a treat i.e an afternoon of watching a movie with popcorn. 

It was suggested that our school council go and talk to the juniors about how they organise their team points and team groups. (Mrs Johnson to organise)


AOB:-  Next steps from Pupil survey outcomes:-


  1. Arrange a meeting with Parent Council to discuss pupil surveys and Team point ideas.
  2. Arrange a meeting with Mrs Hillman to ask her about improvements in Lunchtime based on pupil survey comments.
  3. Discuss with Mrs Grice about setting up the playground buddy system.
  4. Discuss with PCA how to raise money for  Playground improvements i.e football area, quiet areas, reading areas, rainbow clubs(craft club) etc.

Meeting 14th November


Discussed the new Team point system. 

How we would introduce it to the children? 

How the children could earn points?

What the rewards would be if they were the team with the most points?


The school council then reported back to their teachers and class.

November 26th



We discussed how we were going to organise KHGT (Kents Hill has got talent) this year.  We wrote a letter to our classes and made a audition list and voting slips.  We decided that it would be held on the 19th December, we would have 3 judges again.  There would be      2 children from each class to perform and the auditions would take place on the week beginning 10th December.   

We took the information and shared it with our classes.

The school council met with the parent council and discussed school improvements and what they have been up to in the school council. 

5th December no meeting

12th December



KHGT:- auditions, script and lights and action. How will it run?  

Team point system:-

Discuss how it will work

  •   Counters in jars
  •   4 team groups
  •   Siblings in same group
  •   Jars in Hall, office and playgrounds too.
  •   Trust values :- Growth mindset

Behaviour system:- Discuss

Play buddies:- Discuss how school council can support them.


Spring term


The school council didn't meet regularly this term as they were busy in their classes organising the team point systems and monitoring if the children were being good learning warriors.


The school council has successfully set up a team point system in each class and all the children and teachers are enjoying using it.  There has been a positive change in the way the children are engaging with learning and especially with their quality of work and independence. 


The school council record the team point every week and then the winning team is announced on Fridays assembly.  They are all trying hard to being the winning team at the end of the year so they get to have the special prize.


Good luck children for the summer term!!!
