The School Council is a valued part of the children’s involvement in running the school and incorporating their ideas into our ongoing development. Regular meetings with staff, each other and their classes provides a clear pupil voice regarding all aspects of our pupil’s learning and experience in school. The children feel the School Council:

  • represents the views of the children in the school.
  • suggest ideas of how school life can be improved.
  • is ‘fantastic, terrific, great, brilliant, marvellous and wowzers!’
