Candidates for our school council are elected by members of their class and elections take place each September. Our council consists of 2 members (a boy and a girl) from every year group, starting at Year 1 through to Year 6.
What is a School Council?
A school council is a group of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community. Each year voting takes place for the children who have been campaigning to be elected to the School Council. The children meet with Mrs Barrett and other teachers every half term. We talk about issues and ideas affecting the daily life of the school.
What do we do?
Our school council meets to discuss and sort out problems and ideas. These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events/ fun school events.
Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning charity events and putting forward views of other children in the school!
If you have any ideas you would like to share, please email and we will discuss these at the next School Council Meeting. Thank you!
