Welcome to our School Council Representatives 2017

Our New school Council Members have had a busy start to the year, they have worked together to produce a power-point and presented it in an assembly on 18.10.17 to the whole school. In this they shared the good things that happen around school; things to be proud of, but  they also highlighted things that need to improve; such as keeping our school tidy and respecting property and each other.


They have also agreed the Child Friendly Anti-Bullying Policy that has been shared with the whole school.Every class has a copy so the children can look and talk about it.

Child Friendly Anti-Bullying Policy 2017


Tuesday 3rd October 2017 members our school council made a visit to Leeds Civic Hall  and met the Leeds Lord Mayor.

This followed by a guided tour and refreshments in the Ark Royal Room.

Wednesday 18th October 2017 the school council members presented an assembly to key stage 2 focusing on good things in school and things that we need to improve.

The message was clear: we all need to work together to make the improvements around school. A great job done!

The purchase of new benches made last year have been a great success and are well used in all areas of the playground.

Aspire School Councils

Through out the year each primary school in the Aspire Partnership pays host to the others.

School council members from each school meet, look around the other schools, share good ideas and organise visitors.

Asquith have organised a very exciting visit for March 2018 - watch this space!

The other schools in the partnership are busy organising other events.

Below are some of the images from the visits organised in the partnership in 2016-2017

Easter at Asquith 

On Tuesday 18th April 2017 each class held their own Easter Competitions, some children made Easter Bonnets, others made Easter Gardens and our year 6 organised an Easter Bake Off.

The School Council members had the very difficult job on deciding the winners of the amazing creations, James Scott our Hawthorn Class representative particularly enjoyed his judging! 

The current school council members are busy having conversations on what events they would like to organise for this school year.  


Thursday 20th April 2016 Cluster council representatives met at Morley town hall for their half termly meeting. They also visited Queen street where the banners are displayed that each school has created. The theme this year is 'all around the world'. Asquith's is located outside onwards and upwards. It was created by Alyssa Richards in Year 6.

October 2017 these banners are still flying high in Morley. The new Cluster council representatives have been elected and they had their first meeting Thursday 12th October 2017, they have given good feedback to the school council and are they are actively working on projects that have been agreed.

Tuesday 25th April 2017, school council visited the construction site of the new cinema complex at the White Rose Centre. They got a good insight of work in progress, health and safety and witnessed the heavy machinery removing rubble. The new complex is hopefully opening in the autumn and will include an I-Max cinema and many restaurants.

October 2017 the restaurants are now fully completed, very busy with lots of choice.We have had confirmation that the I-Max cinema will be open Friday 17th November 2017
