We have both a School Council and a School Parliament at Eldon. Each class elects two school council representatives, the school council then elects children to the Parliament.
The School council meet and come up with lots of ideas for things that the children would like to organise, to change or to try out. It is parliament’s job to agree the best ideas and work with Miss Flynn to implement them.
Some example of the things that were organised last year are; Takeover day, a Summer Fair and an Enterprise Week.

We are excited to announce that the votes are in-
Jayda had 288 votes
Anwar had 267 votes
Ms Williams explained to the children that because the difference in votes was only 11, that we had a hung parliament. Ms Williams spoke to both Jayda and Anwar about forming a Coalition Government, which they both agreed that they could work together.
We therefore have our first Eldon Government which will look like this-
Jayda- Prime Minister
Anwar- Vice Prime Minister
Deputy Prime Minister EYFS- Marisda
Deputy Prime Minister KS1- Rafel
Deputy Prime Minister KS2- Jemima
They will have their first meeting next week to form their cabinet.
Exciting times at Eldon!
What an exciting few weeks we are having at Eldon, as the election campaign continues to find Eldon's first Prime Minister.
Here are some photographs of children presenting their speeches from the Prime Minister heats. All the children then voted for the winner in each year group.
Watch this space for the overall winner!
Thank you to the Year 6 School Council, who helped organised a fun day with the profits they made from fundraising. They were all involved in tennis, street dance, art & craft, basketball and football. All the children had a fantastic day!

On Friday 31st March 2017, the student council are organising a ‘Pyjama Day.’ All children are to come dressed in their pyjamas and donate £1 to the student council.
This day is being held not only to raise awareness about the importance of sleep, but to raise money for the student council to assist in providing resources for the school.
Children are to wear appropriate pyjama wear that will be both warm and dry when going outside for play. They must have sensible shoes on that adheres to the school uniform policy and wear their coats when outside.
Sleep is a necessity to our physical and mental health. Getting enough quality sleep, the right hours and the right times can contribute to our quality of life and safety. Sleep aids growth and development particularly in children and teens. Sleep improves learning as the brain is able to form new pathways when we are resting enabling us to make better decisions, problem solve and concentrate.
Children aged 5-12yrs need 10-11 hours of sleep per night. There are many strategies that can assist in getting the right amount of sleep. These include: going to bed at the same time every night; not having caffeinated drinks/high sugar drinks; have a bed time routine; making the bedroom cool, dark and quiet and exercising throughout the day.
The student council are looking forward to the Pyjama Day and hope to encourage and promote a healthy sleeping routine.
Thank you for your support in advance.
Thank you to all the children who designed a healthy packed lunch box. Here are some of the designs from KS1 and KS2. The winner is to be announced soon!
We have listened to the points you raised last term and that some children are concerned about bullying. This week we celebrated 'Anti-Bullying Week.' Over the last few weeks there have been different assemblies about bullying and what we should do. The School Council have met and discussed in class what you would like to change or improve. Please read the latest minutes to see which suggestions are being put forward to the Senior Leadership Team. We have just appointment a new Learning Mentor in the Infants and already we have less behaviour incidents. We will keep you updated with any changes that happen. Remember to SPEAK OUT and say 'NO!' to bullies.
