School Council is an important part of helping our young people to become active, democratic citizens. Our school council is a representative group of pupils elected by their peers to represent their views and raise issues with the senior managers and governors of their school. Each year, a class representatives are selected and contributes to the leadership of School Council.
The school council can also take forward initiatives and projects on behalf of their peers, and be involved in strategic planning by contributing to Governor Visit day, and staff appointments.
Our School Council aims to:
- Involve pupils in helping to create and implement school policies and procedures that will benefit everyone in the school community.
- Ensure pupils feel that our school responds to their needs.
- Give pupils the opportunity to let adults know their feelings and opinions about things that affect them.
- To listen to the views of their class and represent these ideas and views during school council meetings.
- Give pupils a say in decisions and to play an active role in making our school a better place for all.
- Give opportunities to develop leadership skills through participating in school council meetings and projects.
- Contribute to the planning of charitable and fundraising work.
- Meet regularly to ensure the school council is active and making a difference.
