We have an excellent school council. They have won awards for community projects such as litter picking and poster design. Recently they visited a local school 'Nishkam Primary' (a Sikh faith school) to see how they could all work together to make the community a better place to live.
They are soon to be visiting the Lord Mayor in his chambers to discuss British Values and how larger councils work.
What is a School Council?
A School Council is a group of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all the pupils to improve the school. They attend meetings every fortnight to discuss how to make the school better.
Mrs V. Devi helps the Councillors to chair the meetings which are held every fortnight, usually on a Wednesday afternoon.
We have class representatives from Year 1 to Year 6. There are two members from each class, a boy and a girl.
What is our School Council for?
- The School Council is about learning to work together
- Learning about democracy
- Learning how to play a positive role in our community
Roles of School Council
