We have a ‘School Council' which consists of 16 pupils chosen by their Class Teacher and class from Years 1-6. Each class has a school council representative. The School Council makes decisions, after consulting with their peers, about changes in our School. Recent decisions have been; playground and lunch time developments, road safety, thinking about how to improve the school toilets and cloakrooms and selecting charities for the school to support.
For many years all the decisions about children were made by adults. But adults don’t always make the right decisions, sometimes because they haven’t talked to the children about the issue.
By being on the School Council the children are able to help the adults in our School make the right decisions for the children and the School.
