What is a School Council?
A School Council is a group of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all pupils. Council members speak on behalf of the whole school and make decisions about school life. We truly value the opinions of all our pupils and the School Council provides them with a forum to share these opinions.
Our School Council aims to:
- develop confidence and responsibility
- develop life skills through participation
- develop good relationships and respect the differences between people
- encourage children to be actively involved in decision-making by playing an active role in making the school a better place.
The School Council will…
- represent the views and opinions of all pupils and will act as a vehicle for the voice of the pupils to the Senior Leadership Team.
- work together to fulfil the aims of the School Council, as described above.
- represent the School and be a role model for the pupils.
- be a link between the pupils and the Senior Leadership Team.
- work with staff in planning and facilitating activities and events
The School Council attend regular meetings throughout each term with Miss Cochrane. Within these meetings, children discuss whole school issues, fundraising ideas and raise any issues on behalf of their class.
