School Council

What is it?

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

What does it do?

Our school council does a number of things:

  • The school council meets – with a teacher present – to discuss and sort out problems.
  • Members of the school council is responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning events, improving the school environment or resources, writing newsletter articles, or helping interview new staff.
