Why have a School Council?
A school council is an ideal way for our pupils to have an input into how our school could be improved. It is a forum where pupils are able to voice issues that are important to them, represent the views of all students within the school, prioritise ideas and ask people to help make things happen.
Each year, every class elects two representatives to be members of the school council. Some of the elected pupils will also adopt the role of Chair, Secretary or Treasurer.
Meetings are held regularly within the school with pupils having the opportunity to attend the Junior Youth Council, a forum for bringing ideas from all school councils in the locality together. A focus that we’ve all been working on is promoting road safety and raising awareness to parents and the local community. We have also been promoting the Walk to School campaigns.
