The School Council is an inclusive, structured, forum for discussion and decision-making. It is a means for children to raise issues and concerns and a forum through which we can consult pupils. From Year 1, two members of each class are elected by their peers to become School Councillors. Councillors want to be on the council for different reasons but mainly because they believe that they can make a difference. They care about our school and want to make it a better place and through this role they develop confidence and skills such as communication and negotiation.
Being a member of the School Council enables children to develop responsible attitudes and gives them a feeling of belonging, encourage listening to others and develop self-confidence. It also improves pupil/teacher relationships.
