School Council

Thank you for visiting our page. We hope you enjoy your visit! 

All of the classes, from Year 2 upwards, vote for a boy and a girl to join the School Council, as represtatives of each class. We choose a Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer to organise the meetings and we meet regularly. Our classes think of ideas to discuss and we add them to the agenda together with topics which the staff and the children in the school want us to talk about. After the meetings we tell our classes what happened and any decisions we made. We also ask them to talk about what we have told them and we report this back to the next School Council meeting. In assembly, we discuss what has happened at our meeting. We put the minutes on the School Council notice board in the main corridor for everybody to read.

The children report that they really enjoy being School Councillors because it helps them:

  • learn to take part in discussions
  • become better listeners
  • help solve problems
  • make the school better
  • become more confident
