Student council

Policy

The purpose of the student council is to give the pupils a voice and improve communication between pupils and teachers, the aim is to give them a positive role in school and ensure they are listened to and respected for their ideas and concerns, it involves the pupils in many of the decisions, which are made regarding day to day running and management of the school. Discussions/agendas at council meetings are minuted and put onto the agenda of Senior Management Team (SMT) meetings to be discussed/acted upon at management level.  Moreover it helps to develop social and learning skills in many areas such as speaking and listening, problem solving and decision-making.

The student council discusses and makes decisions regarding:
  • School rules
  • Anti-bullying approaches
  • Relationships
  • Care for school building
  • Games and activities at lunchtimes and after school
  • Behaviour and discipline
  • The environment of the school
  • Fundraising
  • Health and safety
  • Other relevant matters

Each September the children in their classes elect new members of the student council.
