Being a rep on the School Committee is a great way to get to know others and how the school operates. Each class has two or three class reps and School Committee meets once a term and is headed by the Chair/s.
A summary of the term’s minutes is circulated by reps to each family in their class.

The committee organises and runs social, charitable and other day-to-day non-curricular school activities, for example:
- Autumn: Harvest Festival assembly and distribution of foods, Christmas Fair, juniors’ carol concert, children’s Christmas parties.
- Spring: main fundraising event, Juniors’ disco and AGM evening.
- Summer: Summer Fair.
The committee raises money to help finance school equipment. They also support the school’s chosen charities of the term.
Reps manage a class kitty (usually £25) to cover teacher presents, parent parties, children’s Christmas parties etc. The sub for Ultra Violet Class is usually higher due to extra expenses incurred for this year.
A coffee morning for new parents is held at the start of the autumn term, with a tour and a current parent’s commentary on the school. Each new family is allocated an existing Unicorn family from the reps as their ‘buddy’ to help them settle into the school quickly.
