A school council is group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school. School council members are elected from each class year 1 – year 6 at the start of the academic year.
The school council does a number of things
The school council meets, with a teacher present – to discuss and sort out problems. These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
Members of the school council are responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning discos, writing newspaper articles, or meeting with catering staff.
The aims of the school council are
To make sure that our school is a safe and happy place for children.
To make sure that children have a place to voice their concerns.
To encourage all children in the school to suggest improvements.
To make sure any suggestions or concerns are listened to and acted upon.
In 2015-2016 the school council also established links with charities to help the children understand their place in our global community. We collected shoes to send to Syrian refugee children in Lebanon and we have established an on going link with Water Aid. Last year we raised over £1000.
