School Council

Who We Are

Our School Council is made up of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

What We Do

Each year, every class will elect 2 representatives a boy and a girl to be members of the School Council.

The council will then meet to elect officers such as:

 

  • Chair
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer

 

We are a good School Council because we listen to and represent the views of our class and we get things done. We learn how to present an argument and bring about change to improve the school.

 

  • We have regular meetings – every Tuesday morning
  • We regularly report back to our class and collect their and suggestions
  • We look at democracy in action when we visit City Hall.

How We Make A Difference

We don’t just talk we get things done.

 

  • We think of others and run successful fund raising campaigns for charities including: Sport Relief; Children in Need and Comic Relief.
  • In recent years, The School Council entered the Speaker’s School Council Award, the national competition Lights, Camera, Parliament which was based on law making in the UK and has arranged for guest speakers to learn about democracy and government including our local MP, Right Honourable Iain Duncan Smith. We are always looking at ways to represent our school in the wider world.
  • We successfully created and run a healthy tuckshop every Friday break time.

I want to be a School Councillor because I want to try my best to make your ideas possible. I will try to make all ideas happen.

I will do all I can to do the best for you and the school. I wanted to be School Councillor because I wanted to lead my class in the right way. Another reason I wanted to be School Councillor is because 4 years ago my brother was in the School Council and I wanted to carry that on.

I wanted to be a School Councillor for two years and to put smiles on every pupil’s face and now I have the chance to do it. I will fulfil this promise. Before the Pupil Leadership started my class had wanted mixed lunch bells and had wanted a tree house. They got scrap paper and got people signing it and as I represent my class I will work out how the lunch bells can mix. I also want to not just put a smile on pupil’s faces but the School Councillors’ too as they are working so hard to help everyone. Also the teachers. I want to reward the teachers for trying so hard to teach us and hope I can make change. For example: they can go to the toilet in the middle of lessons and a substitute will always be waiting. I would also like to give next year’s School Council a boost and an idea too.
