School Council

Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.

 The School Council’s aims are:

  • to make the school a better place for all pupils.
  • to keep the school as a supportive, clean environment to learn in.
  • to improve the school to be the best that it can be.

Why do we have a School Council?
Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.

The School 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, pupils and teachers, 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?
Our Council is made up of 2 representatives from Years R to 6.  School Council meets twice a term to work on particular projects.  Each member of our School Council is elected by their classmates at the beginning of the school year after a short presentation explaining why they should be elected. School Council members need to be confident at speaking in front of others, and be a good role model for others in the school. School Council members will be ambassadors for our school. They may be asked to escort visitors around school, interview potential new staff or deliver presentations to visitors

What do we do?
Members of the Council take part in discussions about what we would like to improve in our school and also feed back any relevant information to their class, or to SLT. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the Council. In the last year, the school council has particularly focused on reducing the amount of single use plastic used in school, particularly at lunchtime.
