School Council

The School Council


The School Council is a group of children, with two representatives from each class, who meet every fortnight to discuss matters which are important to our pupils. 


Each class are encouraged to share and discuss any key school issues with their class representatives, who record these comments. The reps bring these notes to meetings and we talk about ways in which we can improve the school. Representatives feed back to their classes by reading the minutes from the meeting or by asking the class's opinion on matters discussed in meetings. When decisions need to be made, children are asked to vote for their preferred choice. Our School Council therefore acts like a democracy, similar to the society we live in. Occasionally, the School Council raises money for charity.
