Why do we have a School Council?
The School Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made. Effectively, pupils have a voice and strong input into school life.
School council meets every three weeks to discuss their thoughts and opinions about a range of school issues. The School Council committee consists of two pupils from each Year group 1 – 6, the School Council representatives were voted for by their peers.
The pupils all enjoy the responsibility of being School Council representatives.
