School Council Welcome to the School Council What is a School Council? A school council is a group of pupils elected by their fellow pupils to represent their opinions and raise issues with senior managers and governors in the school. The school council can also take forward projects on behalf of the pupils, and be involved in planning and things like the School Development Plan, governing body meetings and staff appointments.
To be effective, the school council must:
•Be representative and inclusive; •Take time to listen to all pupils and communicate their views;
•Feed back to pupils about what happened about their views;
•Make things happen – or explain why they can’t! The school council conducts a meeting once a month. We will discuss any issues that has arisen, ideas that need to be shared to improve the school and organize events.
Our Notice board On our notice board by the reception, you will see who the members are. On another notice board our minutes from a meeting is displayed and a chance for students to share any ideas.
