What is a School Council ?



Our School's Council is a great opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way our school is run. The School Council benefits the whole school: pupils, teachers and the wider community- it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made. Not only do our members get a chance to improve our already amazing school but they develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. Members of our School Council will be responsible for ensuring they communicate both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.


Our focus will be:


  • Learning to work together
  • Learning about democracy
  • Learning how to play a positive role in our school community


We will aim to involve everyone, not do everything.  


We will endeavour to get everyone to do the following:


  • Find things you want to change
  • Come up with ways to make them better
  • Put these ideas into action
  • See what works (evaluating)
