School Council

What is the School Council?

The School Council is a voice for all the children in the school. The School Councillors were voted in by their class. They were chosen because they were kind, helpful, reliable, confident to share views, showed they could listen to others and most importantly were selfless.

Why do we have a School Council?

We have a School Council to give the children in our school the chance to take a lead in making the school a better place. This is important because Article 12 of the International Rights of the Child says that “Children have the right to say what they think should happen when adults are making decisions that affect them and to have their opinions taken into account.”

How will the School Council do this?

  • Asking the children in the school what things could be improved or changed. They will do this through Council meetings, talking to other children to gain their views.  
  • Making plans or undertaking projects.
  • Finding people to take on responsibilities.
  • Raising money for projects.
  • Helping to organise events and trips.

Who is in the School Council?
Two members of each year group are elected on to the School Council.
