Why we have a School Council
The School’s Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made. Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each Councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.
How members of the council are selected
Each child creates a manifesto which is then presented to their class. The manifesto details what they would like to achieve if they were to be elected as a councillor. One member is elected from each class based on votes from their classmates. The council then votes for a Chair, a Vice Chair and a Secretary.
