Representatives from each role within the school: Head Boy/ Girl, Vice Head Boy/Girl, Librarians, Eco -Warriors, Prefects and Buddies are automatically members of the School Council each year. The council meets termly to discuss any aspect of school life they wish to raise, or any matters about which staff would like to consult the council.
There have been a number of changes made following discussions including: new playground activities, the annual selection of a charity for Sholden School to support as well as contributions to the School Improvement Plan. Click below for a more detailed explanation.
At the beginning of each school year the children choose the chosen charity of the year to support.
This year, has been extremely difficult with the restrictions of Covid-19, however we have completed a children in need collection, Love in a Box and the Harvest Festival food bank collection.
In 2016-17 pupils have chosen to support Cancer Research and money will be split between this charity and other good causes throughout the year.

In 2015-16 children chose to support Macmillan Cancer Support - this meant that half of all of our fundraising went to this charity. The rest was split between the school and other causes such as Red Nose Day and Children in Need etc.
In the past the School Council has been fundraising for a quite outdoor reading/ learning area which was completed in 2019.
The Council recruited one of the parents to build the structure.
