St Michael’s School Council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them. It is an important and useful way for us as a school to provide leadership and development opportunities for our pupils.
What is a school council?
A school council is group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school. We have a group of children who are made up of KS1 and KS2 pupils.
What jobs are there?
At the beginning of the school year, every class elects one representative to be a member of the school council. The council then meet to elect officers such as:
* School Council Leaders
In our school we run a combined infant and junior council. We meet together every 2-3 weeks.
How does the School Council work?
The School Council leaders lead the meetings. Class representatives or teachers bring issues to the School Council.
How can others raise an issue or idea?
Class representatives keep a note in their class school council book of any ideas given by the other children in their class and then raise these points at the following meeting.
How will others know what happened at the meetings?
Class representatives feed back to their class as soon as possible. There are minutes written up and put on the School Council board as well as the school website.
