Ensuring every child has a voice
At the start of each school year pupils vote for council members in their class to represent the views of all pupils and to improve our school. School Council meets, with a teacher present, to share ideas and sometimes problems classes and the school are facing. The Class School Council representatives are responsible for taking ideas to meetings and carrying out suggestions that School Council has agreed, such as planning charity events or working on community projects.
