Welcome to Our School Council!

What is a School Council?

A school council is a group of democratically elected children that represent the views of the children in the school. We meet regularly and have class councils to feed back. This helps ensure all our children have a voice in how the school develops and works for all of us.

The School Council will meet to discuss  any sort of school business. They meet with the head teacher regularly to talk about the curriculum and new learning idea; sort out any issues, for example school lunches or play times. They also discuss ideas for fundraising and implement action plans.

Please speak to our School Councillors if you wish to put forward any ideas for us to discuss at our School Council meetings.
