School Council[/mp_heading] [/mp_span]
WHAT IS A SCHOOL COUNCIL?
A school council is a group of pupils elected by their fellow pupils to represent their opinions and raise issues with our headteacher and governors. .
To be effective, the school council must:
- Represent all pupils and include as many people as possible
Take time to listen to all pupils and communicate their views
- Feed back to pupils about what happened about their views
- Make things happen – or explain why they can’t!
How do pupils become a school council member?
Our School Council are elected by their peers. In the Autumn Term we hold elections and pupils are asked for a child in their class who demonstrates positive qualities such as;
having a responsible attitude,
a good role model,
a hard worker,
a good listener and above all;
someone who is willing to serve our school community.
What do the School Council do?
The meet with the School Council Teacher lead regularly to ensure that our pupils 'have a voice'. They will also take forward projects such as testing the lunch menus and asking other pupils opinions about how to improve playtime.
Congratulations to all of the children who have been chosen to represent the children in our school.
