What is School Council?
The main aims of the School Council is to improve the school according to the children’s point of view and to make sure each class has a platform to voice their opinions.
Each councillor meets with their class to discuss ideas about changes and improvements to the school. The issues are then raised in the meetings and councillors discuss how to move forward with these ideas. They carry out surveys and votes within their classes so that each class ‘opinion is represented. These opinions are then fed back to the council and the opinion of the majority is taken forward.
