The School Council was set up to enable the children to have a say in the running of their school. In this way, our children have a greater sense of belonging, become more confident when putting forward ideas and develop a greater understanding of the need to work co-operatively for the good of others. Each year, every class will normally elect 2 representatives to be members of the school council.
The School Council meet fortnightly to discuss ways in which to improve the school. Decisions are then fed back in class and any issues that arise are discussed. The school council meets - usually with a teacher present - to discuss and sort out problems. These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning discos, writing newspaper articles, or meeting with catering staff.
