Within our school curriculum, one of the key areas making up the ‘Learning for Life and Work’ theme, is active participation. The curriculum requires that young people are provided with opportunities to participate in school and society. Our school council is an excellent way in which we can teach children about democracy, local and global citizenship and accountability.
Our school council is a group of children who act as representatives for their classmates in discussing school issues with school staff, including the Head Teacher. It’s a brilliant way of representing and contributing to pupil voice and having an impact within our school. The children are elected to embody the views of all pupils across many different topics of discussion, as well as working hard to improve our school and the facilities it offers. The school council help to make decisions about how the school is run and take on projects that support the children’s learning and development, such as organising charity days, representing the school at various events or ensuring the school is as environmentally friendly as possible.
Our school council meet on a regular basis and discuss a variety of different hot topics, including items such as school lunchtimes, rewards or ideas for fundraising events to support different charities. Our school council are responsible for carrying out the ideas which have been agreed upon, such as planning discos, shopping for plants or improving play equipment.
Please meet our school council.
