School Council

School Council What is a school council?


A school council is a group of students who are elected to represent the views of all the pupils and to improve our school.
The purpose of the Council is to give children a real and resonating voice. The School Councillors consult with their class regularly to seek opinions, discuss ideas and listen to class ideas.


The School Council supports the school’s development and uphold the Article 12 from the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.



Article 12


Every child has the right to say what they think in all matters affecting them, and to have their views taken seriously.



What does it do?


Our School council does a number of things;


  • They meet to discuss and help sort our problems within school. These may include school lunches, behaviour, facilities or ideas for fundraising events.
  • They are responsible for listening to their class, reporting to the school council, discussing ideas and issues and verbally sharing the agreed outcomes.
  • Updating the School Council display board within school.
  • Meeting with Governors and Senior Management team.
  • Sharing with parents their ideas and decisions.
