" We will listen and make decisions on behalf of our friends" (School council) 2022
What is a School Council?
Children’s School Council is a group of children who meet every other week to discuss issues or ideas within the school. There is one Children’s School representative from each class in Key Stage 2. These are elected in September in each class by their peers.
Aims and objectives of our School Council
- To develop and promote children’s self-confidence, social skills and their responsible behaviour towards each other and towards their teachers and adult members of staff.
