Why do we have a School’s Council?

The School’s Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. The School Council benefits the whole school, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made.

Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.

Who can be a member of the School’s Council?

We have two children representing their fellow pupils from Class 3 to Class 6. At the start of the Year, the 2 representatives are voted in by their class.

What do we do?

Members of the council take part in discussions and votes and then feedback any relevant information to their class. At times, they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the council. Councillors also take part in events or projects which help school and the local community. Members of the council meet regularly with Miss Claydon
