Why do we have a School Council?
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?
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 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. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the Council. The School Council are also responsible for selecting the charities that the school supports each year,
