Our school council is a group of pupils elected by their fellow pupils which represents their opinions and raises issues with the headteacher and governors in the school.
The school council also takes forward projects on behalf of the pupils, and is involved in planning things like the School Development Plan, governing body meetings and interviewing staff.
In order to be effective, our school council ensures that it:
- Represents all pupils and include as many people as possible
- Takes time to listen to all pupils and communicate their views
- Feeds back to pupils about what happened about their views
- Makes things happen – or explain why they can’t!
