School council is designed to include two or three children from each class (Reception to Year 6) in the school. Children are elected by their fellow pupils to represent their opinions and raise issues working with their school leaders and governors. The school council has worked hard to take forward projects on behalf of their peers and be involved in raising money for charities.
School council promotes pupil leadership opportunities, enabling children to develop valuable communication, organisation and debating skills through key roles of responsibility and new experiences. School council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their opinions as well as influence the decisions that are made on their behalf. Pupils relish the opportunity to become a greater part of school life and enjoy making their voices heard.
