Children’s School Council is a group of children who meet each week to discuss issues within the school. There are two Children’s School Councillors from each class between year 1 to 6.
• To improve the school according to the children's point of view.
• To make sure each class has a platform to voice their opinions.
• To discuss and raise issues.
At the beginning of each year, children can nominate themselves. Nominees present to their class the reasons why they would make a good councillor. Each class votes for their councillors.
The role of school councillor is a very important and responsible one. Children who represent their class are seen as role models for their peers.
The school council meets weekly to discuss ideas for improving the school. 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.
Each year, as well as small changes, school council work on a bigger, whole school project – last year we held a fayre ran solely by the school council which raised money to go towards a nature garden on the field.
