School Council

School Council


Our School Council is made up of 8 democratically elected pupils from year 3 to year 6.


They are thoughtful, innovative and kind individuals who want to make a real difference to the school.

The school council meets once every half term to discuss upcoming charity events, pupil suggestions and potential whole school activities.


Why have a school council?


Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives.  Our school council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them.


The curriculum requires that young people are provided with opportunities to participate in school and society. School councils are an excellent way in which to increase participation, teaching young people about democracy, local and global citizenship and accountability.

We met for the first time on the 21st September, whereby we received our School Council Badges and had our photographs taken for the website.  Mrs Eastham gave us books to record notes and minutes from meetings in.  We are really looking forward to getting involved and making positive changes in our school!
