At the start of each school year, every class elects new School Councillors. Children nominate themselves for the role and are asked to produce a short speech outlining why they would like to be a class representative and what they can bring to the role. Classes then take part in a secret vote to elect their two representatives fairly. The School Council is made up of one boy and one girl from each class from Years 1-6 and they can be easily spotted by their School Council Badges.
The role of each member of the School Council is to attend regular meetings with teachers and Governors to discuss ways to continuously improve our school and to act as an outstanding role model for others. They decide on which charities they would like to support throughout the year and think about ways to raise money. Recently they have organised a wear your pyjamas to school day for Children In Need and carried out questionnaires to uncover what we pupils really feel about After School Clubs.
The role of each member is crucial as the suggestions and opinions they share on behalf of their classmates give a greater insight into ways that we can work together to develop our school to make it even better!
