WHY DO WE HAVE ONE?
The School's Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. It benefits the whole school community because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made within school. Through our School Council, children develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each Councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.
WHO CAN BE A MEMBER?
We have an active School Council with boys and girls representing their fellow pupils from Year 2 to Year 6. Each councillor is elected by their classmates at the beginning of the school year after a short presentation explaining why they should be elected. The members then elect a Chair, an Assistant Chair and a Secretary.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Members of the Council take part in discussions and votes and also feedback any relevant information to their class. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the Council. Members meet regularly with Mr Rivers.
As well as holding the occasional fund-raising event during the year, the Student Council have also been tasked to think of ways that the school can strengthen its links to the local community.
