Our School Council
Our School Council and Prefects play a vital role in ensuring the children at our school have a voice. They have meetings each half term with Mr Spedding and discuss plans for the upcoming term. The make requests and questions decisions to make sure the pupils at Beech Street get the very best possible experience from their Primary School. The School Council are coordinated by one of our dedicated teaching assistants - Miss Burbidge - who ensure the children are well prepared for their meetings.
