The summer seems to have simply sped by, and here we are, ready for a new school year!

We have a new catalogue for 2011/12 which can be downloaded by clicking on the link on the right hand side of our Home Page.  Don’t forget that you can order 24/7 from our online shop at www.schoolcouncilshop.org

We have a fantastic new book available, which is great for reinforcing and explaining the effects of bullying – WS – from ‘Rear-Ender’ to ‘Slender Brenda’.  The first 25 copies ordered will be signed by the author, Jane Cuff.  If you are involving your School Council in writing or updating your Bullying Policy this would be a very useful book for them to read!

Do come back and check the site regularly because we have exciting developments planned for the next few months!

Thanks to Twitter, we have been given some information by Shiplake College School Council on their suggestions as to how Mobile Phones can be used to enhance the learning process.  Some really great ideas here!

If your School Council has some good ideas, do let us know so we can share them with other schools.

We are pleased that the Teaching Citizenship magazine has reviewed our new School Council Handbook for Primary Pupils. 

However, we would like to clarify a few points!

This fantastic new handbook is a re-write and re-design of the old School Council Handbook for Primary Pupils.  It has been brought up to date with current ideas and refreshed with new sections, illustrations and helpful Morphs! 

IT DOES NOT REPLACE THE KS1 AND PRIMARY SCHOOL COUNCIL TOOLKITS. 

Our Toolkits are designed for use by Teachers who are setting up and supporting School Councils within their school.  These comprehensive books give advice and guidance for both Teacher and Pupil sessions covering ideas such as Circle Time, Charters of Behaviour, Peer Mediation, Writing an Agenda and even music for School Council songs.

The School Council Handbook for Primary Pupils has been designed to be given to each member of the School Council to help them understand and fulfil the important role they have been elected to.  It gives advice on such areas as research, fundraising, issues and inclusion.  The Handbook is not intended for use as a teaching tool within a citizenship lesson.  It is a special Handbook aimed at helping each School Councillor work as part of a team to assist their School Council be the best channel possible for Pupil Voice within their school.

We are very exciting to have been able to add a new category to our online shop – FUNDRAISING. This category will feature products that your School Council can purchase in order to re-sell within the school (to students, staff, parents, etc).  Not only will this encourage all those budding entrepreneurs, but will also help fund anything the School Council want to do. 

The first of what we hope will be a wide variety of products has been uploaded today, so do click on the link and take a look!  [Here is a sneak preview]

Please either download the form, complete the information and fax it to us on 0845 456 9429 or email the info required to members@schoolcouncils.org .  We will then set up your own Website within our Members Network Hub.
