At the beginning of the school year, each class holds an election for the School Council. Any pupil who would like to stand for this election prepares a short statement explaining why they want to be a School Council and represent the views of their classmates in this way.
Once elected, School Councillors hold this office for a full academic year. From time to time, they may bring a guest pupil to the Council meetings to give others experience or greater representation. Our School Council is also supported by a Link Governor, Mrs Thorne.
Overall aims and purpose of our School Council:
- To have a say in decisions and to play an active role in making our school a good place for everyone.
- To support greater and wider good through fund raising and awareness of 3 key charities each year. These charities are chosen by the children.
- To help everyone at our school make good choices about mental well being, friendships and physical fitness.
- Support and promote ideas from the Eco Council and work with them to help our school be Planet Friendly.
