Children's School Council is a group of children who meet regularly to discuss issues within the school so that pupils have a voice and are involved in decisions about the school that affect them. They have special School Council badges so everyone knows who they are!
Why do we have a Children’s School Council?
At the beginning of each year, children can nominate themselves to be a school councillor. Nominees present to their class the reasons why they think they would be good in this role and what they would like to achieve. Each class then votes for their two councillors who will be in office for that academic year.
Each year group's councillor meets with their class to discuss ideas about changes and improvements to the school. The issues are then raised in the meetings and councillors discuss how to move forward with these ideas. They carry out surveys and votes within their classes so that each class's opinion is represented. These opinions are then fed back to the council and the opinion of the majority is taken forward.
