Our school council is a group of ten children who have been elected to represent the views of all children in school. At the beginning of each school year, school council elections are held and each of the classes from year 2 and above chooses two councillors.
The school council meet regularly with a senior member of staff to discuss various topics, including ways that the children can make positive contributions to the school and its community. The councillors feed back what has been discussed to children in their class and bring their classmates’ views to future meetings. The school council is sometimes given a budget to manage for particular projects, for example purchasing new lunchtime equipment.
