School Council

Barnsley Music Education Hub website now has new features which we really hope will support schools. As well as a new Online Learning section that was developed last term, we have also been working hard to reduce the amount of printed paper resources that we use, therefore we have included the following documents online:

·         Pupil Practice Diary

·         Pupil Handbook (Lots of information about how lessons work)

·         New Starter Form (Pink Form)

Here is The link to these documents:

Blue & Yellow

Wow! Our Blue & Yellow Day arranged by the School Council raised over £300 for people suffering in Ukraine. We also collected an amazing array of goods and clothes which were kindly delivered by Dean Whitfield and Rhys with our Councillors to Lundwood Social Club and added to their collection. An amazing thoughtful, empathetic piece of work showing amazing compassion and kindness.
Well done everyone and thank you!

We Will Remember Them

Thank you to our lovely School Council who represented Birkwood at Cudworth’s 2021 Remembrance Service. Father David led our respect and gratitude to those who have helped to protect our country and made so many sacrifices. Father David used the immortal words, When you go home, Tell them of us and say, For your tomorrow, We gave our today. Thank you to Mrs. Sutton and to Year 4 for their beautiful communal wreath which was laid at the Cenotaph. A morning of great pride, respect and of course reflection.

Children in Need…

Thank you to Mrs. White and Mrs. White for their help in organising our School Council’s Children in Need Store. All monies raised from a wide variety of merchandise will benefit this fabulous cause. Really well done!

Afternoon Tea with Mrs Allen

Our School Council enjoyed a very special Afternoon Tea with Mrs Allen to celebrate their time as School Councillors. We loved the buns (thanks to Poppies of Cudworth), the party bags (thanks to Mrs Tracey White) and the cups of tea with lots of sugar!

School Council 2020/21

Mrs. Allen met with the 2020/21 School Council today for the first time.  She was very impressed with how professional everyone was and the wonderful ideas they had already.  It’s going to be a very different year, but we are sure it will still be a busy one too!  Congratulations everyone.

School Council on Tour

Our Councillors were treated to a wonderful day out in London. They enjoyed a spectacular trip on the London Eye and an all-access tour of the House of Lords and House of Commons. It truly was a memorable, informative and enjoyable day. Father David was an amazing tour guide- he also treated everyone to a well-earned ice cream on the South Bank. Our children received praise from members of the public too. Thank you for taking us to London Mrs Allen.
