At Birchwood we have a thriving School Council. Each class is represented by 2 Councillors whom have gone through a rigorous application process and been elected by their class mates. The Year 6 School Councillors are voted for by the whole school after campaign presentations.
School Council meet fortnightly and share their minutes at whole school assemblies. They work on projects led by pupil voice and over the last few years have implemented our 2K a day initiative, rewritten the School Food policy and designed and fund raised for a school pond. School Council are responsible for monthly litter picks, lost property, charity work and our wonderful Suffolk Punch horse Emerald whom we adopted in 2018.
