Children are at the heart of our school community. As a school we value the thoughts, ideas and opinions of all our children and the School Council is one way of ensuring the voice of the children is heard and has an impact on the development of the school.
Class Representatives from across the school are elected by their classes. These children then have an extremely important job to do. They are responsible for the ongoing process of collecting the thoughts, ideas and opinions of the children in their class and reporting back to the Council. They bring new ideas forward for how we can improve our school and local environment. They sometimes come to the meetings with ideas of fund raising for the school and for other local or national charities. Once they have identified a priority, they lead the initiative to enhance what we do as a school.
