Connect Academy Trust Covid-19 Notice to all Visitors and Suppliers

Our schools are minimising the number of visitors they receive, as well as the amount of time visitors spend on the school premises, during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. This will help to minimise group mixing and make it easier to maintain social distancing in school.

We expect all visitors to: 1. only visit the school premises if absolutely necessary. Please phone instead, request a call or request an online meeting if possible. 2. not enter the premises if you or any members of your household have symptoms of coronavirus. 3. clean your hands with alcohol gel (provided) when you enter and leave the building. 4. follow the same procedures as those in place for staff, ie social distancing (2m), avoid touching surfaces and do not enter areas of the school without the permission of staff.

Thank you for your support in keeping our pupils, staff and families safe.

Welcome to our School Council page!


Our School Council is made up of children from each class. Our older councillors help with organising and running the School Council.

We held elections at the start of the year within our classes. This gave everyone that thought they would make a good School Council representative a fair chance of being elected and voted for by our classmates. The chosen representatives attend weekly meetings. 


The chosen councillors for this year are:


Year 1

MAT Council


Last year’s primary focus was to create a learning passport for every child based on the National Trust’s 50 things to do before you are 11 ¾. Each school within the Connect academy was tasked with a particular year group to focus on. Widey's School Council worked hard to create pages for Year 2 for the passport which is both engaging and user friendly. 


This year, we are working on giving our opinions on our exciting MAT Ocean Curriculum that is currently being developed. Our first job was to ask our peers 'what does the ocean mean to you?'. We have had some very interesting responses! 



One of our first jobs as School Council was to research charities that we would like to do some fundraising for over the year. We thought it would be a good idea to think of charities that are important to us and that impact the local community. We came up with a long list and then held a vote for which charity we would like to choose. 


This year, we have decided that our chosen charity will be Plymouth and Cornwall Cancer Fund. This is a very important charity to us as a school and we are excited to raise some money over the year. We have lots of fundraising ideas!


We are looking forward to working with the charity, finding out more about their work and

raising some money for them.
