Our School Council
What is the Children’s School Council?
Children’s School Council is a group of children who meet regularly to discuss issues within school. There is one school councillor from each class.
Why do we have a school council?
-Improve the school according to the children’s point of view.
-To make sure each class has a platform to voice their opinions.
-To discuss and raise issues.
How do I become a School Councillor?
At the beginning of each year, pupils can apply to become a school councillor. The pupils who want to apply to become a school councillor, present themselves to the other pupils with the reasons why they would make a good councillor. Then pupils then vote for their favourite school councillor.
These pupils are recognised in a whole school assembly, where they receive a certificate and a special school council badge.
What we do in meetings?
Each councillor meets with their class to discuss ideas about changes and improvements to the school. The issues are then raised in meetings and councillors discuss how to move forward with these ideas.
