The Academy of St Nicholas Student Council

Representing your school voice

At The Academy of St Nicholas we value the voice of our students. Through the student council we aim to develop students’ leadership, communication and democracy skills which will benefit them in other areas of school life. We strive to develop a strong sense of community around our academy and within our local community.

How the student council is run

The school council has recently been re-established at the Academy with students electing our school council representatives for 2017-2018 through the democratic process outlined below:

  1. The chair of the School Council leads assemblies at the start of the year detailing the vision of the School Council in order to generate student interest.
  2. Students who are interested then put their name forward to be elected onto the School Council with their Form Tutors and Heads of Year. In order to do this students must write a speech outlining how they will contribute to improving the learning environment at TASN.
  3. Form groups along with their form tutors then select two representatives for their form and send them to Miss Mather. The chair of the School Council meets with HOY to discuss and agree the students who will be elected onto the Academy Council. Students are presented with their badges and introduced to their year group in assemblies.
  4. Once the Student and Academy Council has been established, the representatives meet each half-term to discuss any ideas and issues that they put forward for the agenda. The chair of the School Council and the members of the Academy Council then takes the ideas to a meeting with our Head Teacher, Mr. Lancaster.
  5. The outcomes of Academy Council meeting with Mr. Lancaster are communicated to students and staff.

 

What we have done so far

Since starting the student council in 2015, we have raised a great amount of money for our chosen charities including our link school in Nepal and more recently Macmillan. Money has been raised by the student council organising raffles, cake and ribbon sales and sponsorship for sports activities.

What you asked for

What we did

Girls’ sports clubs at lunch times

We now have girls’ football, netball and trampolining on in the sports hall three lunch times per week.

Raise money for cancer charities

We have held a Macmillan Coffee Morning, ‘Race for Life’ sponsored runs and a Christmas Jumper Day. We have raised over £2000 for your chosen charities.

Students asked to go on more trips

Mr Lancaster introduced a Personal Best system and termly rewards trips. The first trips took place in December 2017 which students thoroughly enjoyed. Activities included shopping at bowling at the Trafford Centre, bowling, Ice-Skating and Laser Quest.

Rewarding good behaviour and attendance

You asked for more rewards for students doing the right things around the Academy. We have introduced ‘Personal Best break times’ for staff to nominate students who have either worked hard or made a positive contribution to the Academy and identified students are rewarded with music and a continental breakfast once a week. S

Staff also nominate sixth form student of the week and students are awarded with a £10 voucher for Liverpool One.

The All Saints Academy Football team were recently rewarded with a free lunch of their choice for reaching first place in their football league with Mr Mason.
