Why do we have a School Council?
The School’s Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. We respect and value the thoughts and opinions of our children and whilst it may not always be possible or practical to do everything they suggest, the children do have some fantastic ideas and are able to accept why some ideas may not work well for the school community.
The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made within school.
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.
At the start of the school year we held an election where could candidates could deliver a campaign speech. Children then voted to elect their class Councillor.
Please see the successful candidates below.
(Elections will be carried out at the end of the autumn term.)
