Junior Governors

We need a new school governor

Still image for this video

We have been asked by the school's governing body to design and make posters to support them in their drive to recruit new members to the governing body.  We have used our school's CIRCUS skills to help create our design.  We believe the CIRCUS skills are one of many elements that make our school special.


If you are a member of the local community and think that you might like to join our governing body or would like to visit and find out more information about the role then please get in contact with the school.  We know they would love to hear from you and would be happy to answer any questions you may have. The school's telephone number and/or email address can be found under the 'contact details' tab on the website.

This year's Junior Governor elections coincided with our 1918 Legacy Week. During the week the children in the upper school learned about the impact of the suffrage movement and women's role in WW1 on women gaining the right to vote. The children canvassed for their votes and were democratically elected into role by their classmates. Thanks go to the school ambassadors, Harley and Naomi, who counted the votes and announced the successful candidates in celebration worship.

We will be supporting Red Nose Day 2019 on Friday 15th March.  We have decided on a 'wear your pyjamas to school' and/or 'crazy hair' theme for the day! We will be spending Thursday lunchtime making over 100 Red Nose Day cupcakes which can be purchased for a money donation at break time on the Friday!

Deciding on our Children in Need theme...

This year's Children in Need theme has been decided by the newly elected Junior Governors. They discussed lots of options and decided upon dressing up as your favourite TV or film character.  


As as a school we raised just under £100 for this fantastic cause!

Pupil Voice Conference 2018

This week we were invited to Winton School to participate in their first Pupil Voice conference, an opportunity for our Junior Governors to work with representatives from schools across the Andover area on ways we can improve our schools and work collaboratively with Winton.  We had a great time and have come away with lots of great ideas to take back to school to discuss in more detail.

Thank you to all those who participated in our 'Summer-sun safety' colouring competition and the 'design a funky sun hat' competition (Year 1-6). Our eateries have been sent away and we wait with fingers crossed...


Remember, wrap up, splat on sun cream and wear a hat to keep safe in the sun!

Eco school award

This term the Junior Governors have taken on the responsibility of leading our school to the Eco schools award.  They have conducted an audit of our current standing in regards to waste and recycling, care for our local environment, energy consumption and global citizenship, amongst other areas.  From this, they have written a school's action plan.  

The Junior Governors, wearing their Eco schools caps, have led our 'what a wonderful world' legacy week. In preparation, they held a whole school worship to share their action plan and provide a teaser for some of the activities planned for legacy week, including book swaps, outdoor learning, woodland visits and a food waste competition!

This week we were asked by Mr Shaw to discuss how the classes come back into school after play times. We currently line up but this can have us standing outside for a few minutes when we could be back in our classrooms learning.  There was much discussion and lots of ideas put forward. We have taken our favourite idea to the teachers and will get to share it with the rest of the school in worship next week. It felt good to get to have a say on changes that are happening in our school and share our ideas too.

The Junior Governors met this week to judge the winner of the 'Name that junk'  competition. With over 100 entries there was stiff competition but the winning name has been chosen and our recycled sculpture is called Dave! Well done to our winner.

Democracy Week 2017

Democracy Week 2017 2

This week has been Smannell and Enham's Democracy week.  It was launched by a visit from Cllr Phil North, the leader of Test Valley Borough Council who spoke to us about his role on the council.  He offered us advice about being a successful councillor and made us think about the qualities we want in our class representatives on the Junior Governing body.


Thursday was polling day in school and every child exercised their democratic right to vote!  The results were counted by the school's ambassadors; Verity and Eswyn and  announced in Celebration Worship on Friday!

This year's Young Governor elections will take place during our Democracy Week, beginning on Monday 2nd October 2017, culminating on polling day; Thursday 5th October 2017.  That week we hope to have some special visitors into school to talk to the children about the importance of democracy in British society and the responsibilities that come with being democratically elected by your peers.


The children will be encouraged to canvas their classmates and win their votes.  Mr Shaw will be our returning officer in Celebration Worship on the Friday of Democracy Week, where the results will be announced.
