School Council

What is School Council?


School councillors are two representatives from each of the classes (a boy and a girl). The year 6 representatives can take it in turn to chair the meetings. The school council’s teacher representative is Mrs Berry, our head teacher. School council is also a forum for pupils to have a direct impact in the descisions of the school with the aim of ensuring school is a positive experience for everyone. School council starts at Year 1 and ends at Year 6.


Why have School Council?


We have school council because the representatives can feedback to and from their class and make a difference.


When and where is School Council?


School council is held in which ever classroom is appropriate. It is every other Wednesday or Thursday during assembly at 10.20am.


How do you get into School Council?


Every school year anyone who wants to can try out for school council where their class will vote for the people they want. The boy and the girl with the most votes will become the new representitives.


Why is School Council great?


School council is great because it allows the pupils of the school to make decisions or debate about what happens in the school. This year these have included: Making safety checks and adapting the new equipment.


What are the School Council Secreteries?
