"Pupils really enjoy the many opportunities they have to take on responsibilities such as being a school Councillor."
Minutes from the School Council meetings
Our School Council
We have a very proactive School Council who meet regularly to discuss important school issues. Each class has two representatives (Y2-Y6) on the School Council who are elected by their peers.
The School Council improves communication between pupils and staff.
They are the voice of the pupils in the running of the school, and take their responsibility very seriously. Their term of office runs for two years, before another two children are elected.
The aims of the School Council are to promote a shared sense of ownership and responsibility for the school and to encourage pupils to take an active role in school life.
There are lots of positive outcomes to having a School Council, including positive attitudes to learning, improved relationships, raised self-esteem and improved self-confidence. Council members act as a voice for their classmates and, through their experiences, will learn a great deal about democracy and teamwork.
