Learning Council

At Trafalgar Community Infant School we have a Learning Council. All our children are invited to write a letter of application to Miss Green explaining why they wanted to be on our Learning Council, and what skills and interests they had that would make them a valuable member of our group.
A copy of these letters, agendas and minutes of our meetings, and our research, is available in the Learning Council folder near the main entrance of the school and below on this page.

The Learning Council meets with Miss Green (Co-Headteacher) each half term.  You will know who they are as they wear a very important ‘Learning Council’ badge!

Our aim is to identify how we can make learning even better at our school. We do this by conducting research in our school, and in other schools in our locality. We then decide how we can share our findings with our school community, so we are really having an impact on improving the learning that happens here at Trafalgar Community Infant School.
In the past, we have visited a local Infant School and really loved how they developed through their Forest School experience and Sensory Garden. We shared our findings with the whole school in assembly, with our governors in a governor meeting, and with our parents/carers through the newsletter.
We have also visited Greenway Junior School to see how they learn and shared these ideas back at Trafalgar.

25.01.2023 - The Learning Council met this week, and we recalled how we saw children learn at Trafalgar on our learning walk… using their eyes, their brain, their hands, learning through play, learning from other children, learning from adults, learning by making mistakes.
We have written to the Headteacher of Greenway Junior School and asked if we can come and do a learning walk there, to see how they learn, and to get new ideas for our school. The children are very excited about this, and feedback their findings to their class.
