The School Council is an important part of our school.
The School Council consists of 11 children from Year 1 to Year 6 who have been elected by their peers to represent their class and 4 Council Coaches from year 5 and year 6. The aim of the School Council is to give all children a voice in order to further improve our school by ‘working together to achieve’. The School Council meet with Mr Titherington every fortnight. At the first meeting of the year the important roles and jobs are selected and the Council Coaches helps us to conduct our meetings. The class representatives tell the children in their classes what has been discussed at each meeting and the children can ask the representatives to take forward their ideas to the next meeting. Everybody gets a fair say in the meeting and nobody gets left out.
The School Council is integral to Pupil Voice. Through Pupil voice all children have lots of opportunities to share their thoughts on school issues. Children are consulted regarding key issues in school, such as; our PE kit, extra curricular activities and educational visits and they meet with governors to discuss these issues. The School Council also has safeguarding as a standing discussion area each fortnight to help educate and inform children in their classes.
