What is a School Council?
A school council is a group of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community. Each year voting takes place for the children who have been campaigning to be elected to the School Council.
What do we do?
Our school council meets to discuss and sort out problems and ideas. These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events/ fun school events.
Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning charity events and putting forward views of other children in the school!
The school council meet fortnightly to talk, discuss and share the ideas and opinions of the children in their class. As a group the council then decide on actions that they need to take in order to move forward.
After the meeting, your class representative may follow up with their class by asking a specific question which they need answering, have tasks to complete before attending the next meeting such as writing letters.
