Why have a School Council?

Having an effective School Council, which involves the whole school, can be very beneficial to the whole community and also individuals.

There is improved communications between pupils and teachers, senior management and governors.

Being in the School Council provides a basis for active learning of important life skills, such as:

  • speaking and listening skills
  • teamwork
  • problem-solving
  • moral reasoning skills
  • self-esteem
  • self confidence.

What does the School Council do?

It meets once a half term to discuss matters such as the school environment, playground, the books and resources we use in the school, school events, fundraising for the school and charities and much more.
