School Council

Gatehouse School Council 2023/24


Our school council is a group of children who are elected from Years 2-6 to represent the views of all children and to improve our school.


The school council meet fortnightly with Miss Lewis to agree the priorities for the school for the academic year ahead and which charities the school will support. This year we intend to develop the understanding of our school Vision and Character Qualities across the school with our council members taking their ideas from the school council to discuss with their classes and vice versa. In order for the children to take full ownership of their school council, our Year 6 leaders have taken on more specific roles - Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer, and Public Relations.

School Council Charity Fundraising 2023/24


We wanted a mixture of charities that support children and families who are less fortunate than ourselves, that support our local community in Dawlish, as well as supporting national charities. The children all went away to research charities they would like to support. We all came together with our suggestions and agreed on the below charities.
