Swinderby School Council

School Council 2020-2021


The School Council would like to say a huge hello! 

This year has been a very different year, however, the School Council have still been working extremely hard to ensure fundraising can still take place and to bring a sense of togetherness at Swinderby. 

This year we have a council member from each year group (with two from Reception) so that every one of your questions or ideas for the school can be heard by one of your classmates.

April 2021 - Project Swinderby Play Park!

The school council had a very exciting meeting with Lynne from the Parish Council about new play equipment at Swinderby park. 


The children gave some great ideas and plan to carry out surveys to find out what the children and adults of Swinderby would like to see at their park.

Red Nose Day 2021 - A School for Superheroes

The children had a fantastic, fun filled day dressed as superheroes! In the afternoon each bubble took part in some 'super' activities. Such as: Red Nose and spoon races, throw the Red Nose and spin and balance races! The children raised over £100 for such a great cause! Well done superheroes of Swinderby! 

Dress to Express - for children's mental health week, the children came to school dressed in clothes to express their personality - they also took part in mindfulness activities throughout the week, such as building a den to share a story and making rainbow toast!

The councillors worked so hard to ensure we could still raise money for BBC Children in Need this year! They encouraged all of the children and staff to dress up in something spotty or rainbow and even held a colouring competition where prizes were won. The children were then invited to take part in a short video which was shown on BBC Look North and on Children In Need! We raised a whopping £143.15! We are so proud of the school council and all of the children at Swinderby! What a Fantastic Achievement!

Reverse Advent Calendar- December 2018


A massive THANK YOU to everyone who donated items towards the reverse advent calendar this year. Me and the school council were completely shocked by how many things people kindly donated. The charity was ever so grateful and were astounded by everyone's generosity, so thanks again! 

On Friday 8th June children came to school in non-uniform wearing an item of clothing that was red. They paid £1.00 and were given a free cake. Children were then able to buy a further cake if they wished. A total of £113.50 was raised for the British Heart Foundation. Thank you everyone for your support.
On Friday 26th May the winners of the Fidget Spinner competition were announced. The winner of each class was presented with a Fidget Spinner and all the runners up were given a consolation sweet. Thank you very much for all the entries. I hope you enjoyed the competition? Mrs Lucas and the School Council.

On Friday 24th March we raised money for Comic Relief on Red Nose Day by wearing red noses and/or something red. Also we held a cake sale. Watch this space to find out the final amount raised.

Mrs Lucas and the School Council have been busy selling Red Noses ready for Red Nose Day on Friday 24th March. We have raised £80.00 for this good cause. Unfortunately the Red Noses have all sold but you can buy them from many retailers.


The whole school enjoyed World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March by dressing up as a book character and also bringing in a book to swap. Classes participated in their own book related activities and Mrs Lucas presented a World Book Day themed assembly.


Class 2 were fortunate to have two adults volunteer to read a book to the class. One being Milly Molly Mandy and the other The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. Thank you very much to Mrs Cook and Mrs Sumpter  for giving up their time to do that.


Our next event will be Red Nose Day so watch this space.

Thank you for your support with Comic Relief's Red Nose Day. We have raised nearly £200 in all. Final figure to follow. The cakes were delicious and enjoyed by all. The children looked wonderful in their red clothing.
