Councillors were elected via a range of democratic processes, from secret ballots and speeches to letter writing outlining skills and commitment to the role...
In September, each class in the school elects a captain and a vice captain. Based on election speeches, each class votes for the candidate who they think will represent them best.
The council is given a small budget of £300 each year to spend as they wish but this must help to improve the school.
One of the councillors acts as Chair and another Vice-chair and their role is to create an agenda and to run the meetings.
The School Council meets with a member of the Senior Leadership Team and they discuss issues to do with the school.
The School Council takes part in the appointment of new staff at the school. They form an interview panel and ask questions of the candidates and provide feedback to the Governors and Senior Leadership Team to inform the final decision about who will be appointed.
They decide their own questions which can be quite challenging.
During the year the School Council collects the views of all the pupils. Staff are always keen to know the views of our pupils.
These are some of the issues that we have been discussed and activities organised this year:
This year we have looked at the learning environments, placed friendship stops in the playgrounds and chosen the new houses for our house system. We are currently focusing on learning in lessons and will be carrying out a survey in January.
