Why do we have a school council?
We have a school council so that we can put everyone’s views into action. We try to organise clubs, fundraisers, fetes and other activities.
What do we do?
Each class has a class council meeting at various times during the school year.
This is a chance for the children to express any views, ideas, concerns they have about the school. Our class representatives then bring these points to the school council meetings.
As a school council, we talk about the points each year group have discussed in their class councils and decide which members of staff need to be informed. The school council leaders then talk to the relevant members of staff.
When do we meet?
We meet every half term and our meetings happen after school. We occasionally have lunchtime meetings too.
Who is part of the school council?
Each class has two class representatives that attend school council meetings.
School Council Leaders:
- Run the meetings.
- Talk to the teachers/governors about what the school council thinks and its ideas for new activities.
- Make sure all council members are actively involved.
- Takes notes/minutes at meetings.
- Makes sure everyone knows when the meetings are.
- Keeps all the notes safe in the school council folder.
- Looks after the school council money.
- Writes reports about how much money has been spent, what it has been spent on and how much is left.
- Share ideas and concerns at school council meetings that their class have discussed in their class councils.
- Report back to their class the ideas we have discussed in school council.
