School Council 2018-19

We are a group of children, nominated by our classmates, who try to make the school a better place for everyone. We are ‘the voice’ of the pupils and it is our responsibility to ensure the children at our school have their say and we make our voices heard in a polite yet effective way. We meet every week to discuss what is happening in school. If there is anything that our classes want to raise, they have the opportunity to contribute to the School Council Blog or write a suggestion in the School Council Suggestion Box, which is passed to each class every Friday afternoon.

School Council Promises

In their first school council meeting, the group identified what they thought were important qualities of a school councillor and wrote their own ‘School Council Promises’. Each member of the school council signed the promises and a copy is displayed in each classroom.

School Council Induction

As part of their initial training, on Thursday 16th November, the School Council members will attend a workshop at the Houses of Parliament to learn how to use their voices effectively as a school councillor and also to learn more about the British democratic system. They will share their experience with each class in their school council presentation in Autumn 2.
