School Council and Pupil Voice
The children are very important at our school and we value their ideas and opinions. To this end we want to give them opportunities to share their thoughts on school issues.
The main aim of the School Council is to help to make our school a better place and to give an opportunity to have our ideas and opinions heard.
Every September each class vote for two children from each year group to be representatives of the school. These are children who put themselves forward and may be required to present to the class why they would make a good school council member.
The school council members occasionally give up a lunch time to meet and discuss school issues and events. Everyone has a say in these meetings so that no one is left out. They then report back to their respective classes.
Children will often propose fund-raising activities and work with the staff and FONES to organise these events; children’s team points and awards are organised; and any school issues or niggles may result in the school council finding a solution or creating a new rule.
