The MAD Group at St Oswald's C of E Academy is the school council. Two pupils from each class (Year 1 to Year 6) are voted by their class mates to represent their views on the council.
The children chose the name MAD. It stands for Make a Difference, which is the main aim of the group.
This years MAD group really have made a difference. They arranged a vote for all pupils to decide the design for our new Buddy Bus Stop. This is a new feature for our playground where the children can go and meet other pupils during break and lunchtimes so that they never feel alone.
They are also working with staff at the school to plan new cycle and scooter racks which we hope to install over the next half term.
