School Council

Welcome to the School Council Page

Our School Council are at the heart of our school community. As a school we value the thoughts, ideas and opinions of all our children and the School Council is one way of ensuring the voice of the children is heard and has an impact on the development of the school.

Each Class from across the school has a Representative, they are elected by their classes at the start of the year.  These children then have an extremely important job to do:

  • They are responsible for the ongoing process of collecting the thoughts, ideas and opinions of the children in their class and reporting back to the Council.
  • They bring new ideas forward for how we can improve our school and local environment.
  • Once they have identified a priority, they lead the initiative to enhance what we do as a school. For example, the School Council is currently interested in further promoting reading.
  • The school council are also involved in the recruitment of staff.
