How do we elect School Councillors?
At the beginning of a school year, each class democratically elects their School Councillors. All pupils have the opportunity to listen to the candidate speeches and then vote for 1 boy and 1 girl to represent their class in the School Council.
What do our School Councillors do?
Every half term the School Councillors collect ideas from their class, and meet as a group to discuss issues and fundraising ideas. They also discuss what the activities should be for the end of term reward (Funzone). Before carrying out an idea, they check that the rest of the School Councillors agree.
School Councillors are always there to listen when pupils have a worry or problem about school. It is their job to be the 'voice' of those pupils in meetings so that issues can be resolved.
They also receive opportunities to take part in out of school activities and encourage others to do the same.
The School Council are a very important part of our school.
