Our School Council 2018-19
Why is our School Council important? 
Our School Council is a vital part of the school:
  • It provides an opportunity for pupils to share their views about the school
  • It provides an opportunity for pupils to share the views of their peers
  • It provides an opportunity for pupils to be honest about key ares such as the school vision, bullying, behaviour and safety
  • It gives pupils confidence to lead projects and to make improvements that will make the school even better
  • It provides school leaders an opportunity to listen to and act upon 'the voice of the pupils'
 
How do you become a School Councillor? 
Everyone has the opportunity to become a school councillor. You need to think about the qualities that a good school councillor has. You then need to present your ideas to your class and they vote for a boy and a girl.
 
When do we meet? 
Our School Council meets regularly. This is with Mrs Langley. We meet in the Learning Resource Centre and the agenda is arranged by the Chair and Vice-Chair.
