School Council

 

We believe that every child should reach the highest possible academic standards and that, when they leave us, they should want to go on learning.  But, in addition, we believe that we should encourage our children to contribute to the life of the community around them - their fellow pupils.  The School Council plays an essential part in achieving this aim.  Through the School Council, the children can express their views and ideas to help us make our school as good as it can be.

The School Council representatives have been selected by their classes. They have regular meetings with the Head Teacher to discuss projects, any issues raised by their classmates and ideas for improving the school. It is part of their responsibility to uphold the school's core Christian values of trust, friendship, perseverance, respect and honesty. Pupil representatives are responsible for giving feedback to their individual classes and listening to their ideas and suggestions.

The function of the School Council is:

  • To lead by example and promote and uphold the school's core Christian values
  • To report back to the Head Teacher any causes for concern expressed by any pupils
  • To meet as a group to discuss and then action improvements to the school
  • To raise money for charity and for pupil ‘extras’
  • To be helpful and supportive to all pupils in the school
  • To ensure that the school environment is kept tidy and report any concerns to a member of staff
