The School Council is the voice of the children. The Council consists of two representatives in each year from Year 2 to Year 6. New representatives are elected by the children each school year. Prospective School Councillors have to convince their class that they are the right person for the job.
The Council meets once a month where they contribute to school improvement and work together to ensure the health and wellbeing of all members of the school community.
After each meeting the Councillors are given time to feed back to their class.
Being a School Councillor provides the opportunity to learn real-life skills take on responsibilities and be involved in decision making. In the last academic year the council considered and reviewed playtime games, road safety and our lunch menus.
Everyone really loves the responsibility of being on the school council which is a much valued school voice!
Our school council was very successful last year - they were responsible for devising a new yummy menu in our canteen. They have also helped to improve the KS2 yard by choosing our new equipment whilst working to a budget.
I wonder what our new councillors will achieve this year?
Come back soon to see the results!
