School Council and Pupil Voice
Having a School Council means children can have their say and can make a difference to our school.
The School Council is made up of one boy and one girl from each class (years 1-6). These children have been democratically elected by their classmates to act as their class representative. The School Council meet weekly with the support of a designated teacher to discuss a variety issues relating to the school. The School Council look at both school and wider community issues. They are the pupil’s voice and have an important role to play when making decisions about: the school buildings, the curriculum, lunch and play times and other important events.
The School Council also are involved with the decision making process when it comes to the school’s charity and community work. Headboy and Headgirl chair the meetings, assisted by a member of staff, and all children contribute to each meeting by sharing ideas they have discussed with their classes over the previous weeks.
Once a year, the year 6 School Council representatives are invited to talk to the main school governing body to report on a range of activities undertaken by the pupils.
