School Council


What is a School Council?

Our School Council is a group of children who meet with the support of a teacher or LSA to discuss issues within the school. There are two School Councillors from each class from year 3 to year 6. 


Why do we have a School Council?

  • To improveand make positive changes to the school from the children's point of view.
  • To make sure everyone has a platform to voice their ideas and opinions.
  • To build on our school community.


How do I become a School Councillor?

At the beginning of each year, children can nominate themselves. Nominees present to their class the reasons why they would make a good councillor. Each class votes for their councillor.


What we do in the Meetings?

The councillors meets with their class to discuss ideas about changes and improvements to the school. The issues are then raised in the meetings and councillors discuss how to move forward with these ideas. They carry out surveys and votes within their classes so that each class's opinion is represented. These opinions are then fed back to the council and the opinion of the majority is taken forward. Some of the things that have been looked at in the past include the road safety at school, and also the renovation of the school toilets.
