The school council is a great opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way their school is run.
The council is typically made up of a boy and girl from each KS2 class (Year 3 – Year 6). These children are elected by their fellow pupils and staff to represent their classmates. The members select a chair, vice-chair, secretary and treasurer.
Members of the council take part in small pupil led projects, for example the young enterprise group last year, designed, costed and sold Father’s Day merchandise. It is the responsibility of each Councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of their fellow classmates.
Our school councillors have been busy developing an environmental campaign. They have been looking at ways to keep the school clean, reducing the litter around streets and educating children and parents about keeping the environment clean. The school councillors also took part in some litter picks and designed posters.
