As an academy, we have a school council consisting of a representative from each class from Year 1 to Year 6, who are voted for as part of a democratic process.

What is a school council?

A school council is group of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

The school council does a number of things:

  • The school council meets, with Mrs Bell, to discuss and sort out problems. These may include school lunches, behaviour, attendance or ideas for fundraising events.
  • Members of the school council are responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning discos, writing newspaper articles, delivering important school messages, promoting areas for improvement or meeting with catering staff.

What are the aims of the school council?

  • To make sure that our school is a safe and happy place for children.
  • To make sure that children have a place to voice their concerns.
  • To encourage all children in the school to suggest improvements.
  • To make sure any suggestions or concerns are listened to and acted upon.

What makes our school council a good one?

A good school council is one that represents the views of all pupils and gets things done.

What has our school council done?

  • Created a child-friendly mission statement for the academy
  • Presented their views of the academy to governors
  • Undertaken a health and safety walk around the school
  • Explored how we can improve attendance and created attendance posters to display around the school
  • Made important decisions to help improve playtimes
