School Council

Gatehouse School Council 2020/21


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 each half of term with Mrs Naldrett to agree the priorities for the school for the academic year ahead and which charities the school will support.
