The School Council plays an extremely important role in the school. At the beginning of the academic year, two members of each class are democratically elected to represent their class at weekly school council meetings and to give pupils in our school a voice! Meetings allow pupils the opportunity to discuss aspects of school life including the curriculum, safety, emotional welfare etc and to share their thoughts and opinions/views regarding major changes in our school such as the transition in more recent years whilst our school was being built. Each term the school council members meet up together to share ideas and suggestions.
Decisions reached by the School Council and ideas for future discussions are then shared with classes throughout the school. Decisions made within the School Council can, and do, have a real impact on life within our school.
The School Council has been involved in a number of projects - supporting transition, speaking to Governors and contributing to many decisions which affect daily school life. The School Council also leads on the school’s charity/community work and agree at the beginning of the academic year the charities they would like to support with fundraising.
