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.

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 Directors or other communities, putting forward views of other children in the School.
