School Council

The School Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made.

A child from each class in all years is democratically chosen by their classmates. Candidates must give a short presentation on why they should be elected at the beginning of the school year, and are chosen by classmate vote.

Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is their responsibility to ensure they express their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.

Members of the Council take part in discussions and votes and also feed back any relevant information to their class. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the Council.
