School Council

What is the School Council?

Our School Council is a group of pupils, elected by their fellow pupils to represent their opinions and raise issues with our Headteacher and Governors in the school. Our representatives listen to their peers and effect change which benefits all pupils and the school as a whole.

Why do we have a School Council?

We have a School Council because we value all pupils’ ideas and opinions. Our School Council enables every pupil to enjoy and feel empowered by their education and school life. All children are able to voice their feelings and be heard; this allows everyone to play an active role in making decisions and changing school for the better.

What does the School Council do?

Each year school representatives are elected by their peers to represent their year group and form our School Council. This allows everybody to have a chance to be elected. The School Council representatives meet regularly to discuss issues and democratically make decisions to help get pupils what they want or need.

What have the School Council Achieved?

The School Council have contributed to changes to our behaviour policy, helped to construct a new Team Points system and affected change for better play and lunch times.
