The School Council consists of 8 Year 6 children and a class representative from each year group. These children have been voted by their peers and stand for the school year that they are elected in.
Meetings are held on a Wednesday lunchtime, once a month. The children vote in a chairman and vice chairman, also a child takes the minutes of the meeting. The meeting is overlooked by Miss Musgrove, class teacher.
The children learn how meetings are conducted, keeping an agenda, minutes and discussions. The children are encouraged to bring to meetings anything they wish to discuss. They learn that working together is important and things do not just happen, there has to be input from others. The council representatives then report back to their classes on any decisions made. The class representatives report to the meeting any ideas from their individual classes.
The children organise events to raise money for charities, our church and the local area.
