School Council 2020-21

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 and our new 'Picture News'. If there is anything that our classes want to raise, we get the opportunity to discuss them during our meetings 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.

Our School Council Promises

British Values Link - Children should develop an appreciation that living under the rule of law protects individual citizens and is essential for their wellbeing and safety

School Council Meetings

Every half term the school council meetings are based on different themes which are closely linked to the school gather and presentation themes, British values links and support the children’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural development.

Picture News 

The school councillors support their classes to learn about current issues in the news. During school council meetings they use a topical news picture and debate relevant, real issues and then lead the discussion with their own class.
