What is a School Council?

A School Council is a group of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their School.

How are are school Councillors elected?

Each year voting takes place in every classroom, for the children who have campaigned to be elected to the School Council.

What does it do?

A School Council meets (with the headteacher) on alternate Fridays. to discuss and sort out problems and ideas. These may include school lunches, behaviour, business plans or ideas for fundraising events. Members of the School Council will be responsible for carrying out ideas that they have agreed, such as planning charity events, meeting with Governors or other communities, putting forward views of other children in the School.

What makes a good School Council?

A good School Council is one that represents the views of the children and gets things done. These are some of the things that make our School Council effective:-

  • Regular meetings
  • Good communication between Representatives and their class.
  • Smaller groups (sub-committees) working on specific events or issues.

Do they get things done?

Good School Councils do get things done – our examples include:-

  • A friendship bench
  • Lunchtime play leaders
  • Cake Stalls
  • Charity Events

Do you get out of lessons?

School Council meets fortnightly on a Friday morning for about 20 minutes. 

The School Councillors are supported by Mrs Lidgard.
