The School Council meets every two weeks during term time, usually on a Friday morning during registration.
So far this academic year the Council has had two main areas of focus; lunchtimes and recycling. Following the change of catering providers from our in-house team to Aspens last year, the Council raised numerous issues about the food served by the new company. These points were then passed to Mrs Götschel who raised them in a meeting with the managing director of Aspens. Since then Aspens has been working closely with the school to improve the provision and the School Council continue to monitor what their peers have to say about lunchtimes at Lordswood.
On a more positive note, the School Council has been working hard to devise a new recycling scheme for the school. Starting with paper and cardboard, all staff and students are being asked to place their recycling in new bins that will be positioned around the school. School Council Reps will then empty these bins into the main school recycling bins four times a week. If the scheme is successful the Council are really hoping that they will be able to add plastics and aluminium to the list of things we recycle in school.
